It’s evident that Stereophonics has loyal fans in Singapore. They made their debut at the Fort (with The Great Spy Experiment as the opening act), rocking out to a 5000-strong crowd. And then they came back to rock out the Fort again in 2010 (remember that slipper incident?) and once more at The Coliseum in 2013. Now they’re returning, stronger than ever, to perform at Zepp @ Big Box Singapore on May 8.
More than two decades in the industry, Stereophonics’ accomplishments are have landed them in a position far from where they were when they first started out in. They first formed in 1986 and practiced in a garage before actually doing gigs in men’s clubs and pubs as Tragic Love Company, their original moniker, in 1992. Since then, they’ve changed their name, got signed, produced a total of 10 studio albums, and won a number of awards, including the British Breakthrough Act at the 1998 BRIT Awards.
Their most recent record, Scream Above The Sound, was released in October to mixed reviews. But one thing’s for sure, these guys know how to rock a stage and never fail to pull in new audiences with every release. They’ve played at huge festivals like Glastonbury, Reading and Leeds, and have toured together with the likes of David Bowie, The Rolling Stones and The Who.
Tickets are priced from $98 via Sistic from Mar 8.
