Stereophonics: Kind Tour

Over the last three decades, Welsh rock band Stereophonics have delivered us a plethora of hit tracks that have become British staples, such as 'Dakota' and 'Have A Nice Day'. 30 years, 11 albums, 23 award nominations and 43 singles later, Stereophonics revisit Manchester as a part of their 'Kind' tour, following on from the release of their latest album of the same name.

Selecting tracks to play from 9 of their albums, the band wowed the crowd with delicate guitar lines, poetic lyrics and astonishing vocals that filled the entire arena.

Despite the speculations and fear of the concert being cancelled due to the new virus that was the constant hot topic of most conversations, Stereophonics continued with their plans to rock the arena, subsequently packed out by fans pushing the mass hysteria to one side for a couple of hours to come together and enjoy music as one large entity.

Walking on to the intro of the opening track of their 2015 album 'Keep The Village Alive', Kelly teased fans by strutting the stage before making his way down the thrust, guitar in hand, ready to serenade the avid crowd.

Between their second and third song, lead singer Kelly Jones, took a moment to talk to his fans and reminisce about where his love of music came from, listening with his siblings, and when they left home he took to writing melodies in his downtime, and a songwriter was born.

Closing with The Bartender And The Thief only excited the crowd more and left them begging for more, prompting a cheer for an encore which invited the band back on stage to deliver three more songs, before ending with the David Bowie Inspired 'Dakota'.

Stereophonics have a knack for filling a room with inspiring lyrics,
creating classic hits and bringing together a crowd in one large sing-along. They are a band not to be missed live.
