Stereophonics came on stage all guns blazing, opening with The Bartender And The Thief and crowd favourite C’est La Vie. The pace mellowed with tracks such as All In One Night, Superman and Mr.Writer which were complimented by moody lighting and a stage draped in fairy lights. they completed the set with a 2 song encore consisting of Mr and Mrs Smith followed by their most recognised song, Dakota.
Overall, it was an impressive show filled with a healthy mix of their back catalogue from the last 10 albums. For what appeared to be a sold out show, the boys had the crowd eating out of the palms of their hands so hopefully we’re not left waiting another 3 years for the next tour!
