Welsh rock band, the Stereophonics have announced plans to play the very first concert at the new 32,000 seater Cardiff City Stadium, on Saturday 5th June 2010.

The stadium was officially opened in July, last year, and this will be the first rock concert to be held at the ground. "We want to make it a day to make Welsh people proud," said frontman Kelly Jones. "We will be the first band to play the stadium and we love breaking in venues, even dating back to 1993, being the first band to play the Ivy Bush in Cwmaman!"

The concert will follow a UK-wide arena tour in March showcasing band's new album 'Keep Calm and Carry On'. As well as playing a record-breaking 13 previous sell-out shows at the Cardiff International Arena, the Stereophonics have performed at the Millennium Stadium and Cardiff Castle, with their most recent gig at the castle in September.

Tickets for the concert go on sale at 9am on Friday, 22nd January, priced at £35, and eFestivals will have links to buy them then.
