Gig review:- "Stereophonics, play live in Manchester Arena..."
Review and photographs by Jo Forrest.

THE amazing Stereophonics played at Manchester Arena, on Friday, 4 December 2015, to a sell out audience, on their 'Keep The Village Alive' tour. It is hard to believe that the welsh rock have been around for the last 23 years after forming in the little village of Cwmaman in Cynon Valley back in 1992.

The evening was a mixture of some of their greatest hits as well as some new material. The 1st 45 minuets of the show the audience were relatively quiet and unmoved, there was no bouncing around in the stalls no dancing in the seats. Kelly Jones wasn't particularly animated and didn't seem to have a lot to say. That soon changed when Have a Nice Day came on and the crowd started to look more like they were at a concert, singing and dancing.

The visual effects and lighting were stunning and despite a relatively slow start from the audience the Stereophonics have certainly proved they can stand the test of time, and can still sell out arenas 20 years on. They continue to produce some great anthems and Kelly's distinctive gravelly vocals will always steal the show.
