Stereophonics announced for BBC's Biggest Weekend in Coventry

Editorial Correspondent 9th Mar, 2018 Updated: 9th Mar, 2018

The Stereophonics are the latest added to the BBC Biggest Weekend’s star-studded Coventry line-up.

The event will take place on the May Bank Holiday, May 27 and 28, at the War Memorial Park.

The Welsh rock band will take to stage along with Liam Gallagher who was announced yesterday.

The much-loved but controversial music star is famed as an ex-frontman of Oasis.

More recently he has been operating alone releasing his ‘As You Were’ number one debut studio album last October.

His brother Noel will be playing in Perth as talk of a possible Oasis reunion refuses to die down.

There will also be performances from Tears for Fears, Paloma Faith, UB40, Jamie Cullum, Billy Ocean and Snow Patrol.

With a combination of household names and home-grown talent, the concert will also be a celebration of Coventry’s musical diversity and newly acquired status as UK City of Culture.

BBC Radio 2 will be covering the Sunday, with BBC Radio 3 broadcasting on Monday.

With over 175,000 tickets available to the public, The Biggest Weekend will be the BBC’s ‘biggest ever’ celebration of music.

Tickets for Coventry on Sunday have already sold out but can still be bought for Monday.
