Stereophonics announce Forest Live gig at Westonbirt

Where: Westonbirt Arboretum, near Tetbury

When: Thursday, June 13

One of Britain's best live bands, Stereophonics, have announced a date at Westonbirt Arboretum as part of Forest Live, the summer concert series promoted by the Forestry Commission.

Since their Best Newcomer Brit Award in 1998 in acknowledgment of their debut album, Word Gets Around, Stereophonics went on to become arguably the UK's most popular rock band of the new millennium.

The Welsh band's ascendancy was driven by a succession of top ten hits such as The Bartender and the Thief, Just Looking, Mr Writer, Have a Nice Day and Dakota.

They also had No 1 albums Performance and Cocktails, Just Enough Education to Perform, You Gotta Go There To Come Back, and Language. Sex. Violence. Other?

Stereophonics continued their success with further gold and platinum records and released their 10th studio album, Scream Above The Sounds in 2017.

Throughout their career they have played at some of the biggest venues to fans across the globe, establishing a reputation as one of the best live rock bands around.

Stereophonics' Forest Live performances will feature material from across their extensive back catalogue.

Forest Live is a major outdoor live music series held every summer by Forestry Commission England in seven beautiful forests.

Over 1.75 million people have attended a forest gig in the last eighteen years. Money raised from ticket sales helps to look after the nation's forests sustainably, for people to enjoy and wildlife to thrive.

Tickets for the June 13 gig featuring Stereophonics plus guests go on sale at 9am Friday, January 18. For more information and to book tickets, visit the Westonbirt Arboretum or Forestry England websites.
