Stereophonics reissue first two albums and play gigs!

To celebrate, band to perform two special London shows on October 17th and 18th. ‘Word Gets Around’ and ‘Performance and Cocktails’ to be reissued and played in full

Stereophonics are set to re-issue their first two albums 1997’s ‘Word Gets Around’ and 1999’s Number One album ‘Performance and Cocktails’ and to celebrate will be performing them in full at two very special shows at London’s Hammersmith Apollo.

The gigs will take place on October 17th and 18th and will mark the release of reissues of the albums on October 18th, which will come complete with reams of bonus material.

Frontman Kelly Jones said “It’s over ten years since the first two albums were released. Listening back to them and all the b-sides and live tracks brought back a lot of memories. It’s taken over a year to find and compile all the tracks, pictures and notebooks, Stuart’s passing in June has made the whole experience more poignant. To celebrate the albums we will be playing two nights at Hammersmith Apollo playing every track and a selection of B-sides, something we have never done in a live experience. There’s a lot to learn but it’s gonna be rocking!”

Each of the reissues will come in two formats; a standard 2CD deluxe edition and a limited edition super deluxe 3CD boxset.

The deluxe edition will feature the original album on disc one, while disc two will feature the band’s favourite b-sides from the album, plus rarities, previously unreleased live tracks and, on ‘Word Gets Around’, very early demos from before the debut album recording sessions.

The lavishly packaged super deluxe 3CD box set will contain the original album, a disc featuring b-sides from the album and a third rarities disc comprising unreleased live tracks, demos and sessions. The packaging will include a book styled on Kelly Jones’ notebooks, containing handwritten lyrics and unseen photos.

Stereophonics will play:
October
Sun 17th Word Gets Around, LONDON, Hammersmith Apollo
Mon 18th Performance and Cocktails, LONDON, Hammersmith Apollo

Tickets go on sale on Friday 27th August at 9:00am and can be purchased from the Hammersmith Apollo on 08448 444 748.
