Stereophonics have been awarded with plaque for over half a million ticket sales in Wales, following a successful run of dates with Kilimanjaro Live
By Jamie Raybould on 12 Jun 2018
Stereophonics have been awarded with a plaque commemorating just over half a million tickets sold in Wales alone, the home country of the band, by promoter Kilimanjaro Live.
The plaque was presented to them by Kilimanjaro Live’s CEO Stuart Galbraith, at Cardiff City Stadium, Wales, after their Wrexham Racecourse and Cardiff Stadium shows, which garnered crowds of 20,000 and 74,000 respectively. The UK promoter has recently celebrated its 10th birthday, after having grown to a £26 million-turnover business and one of Britain’s most important promoters, and working with massive artists like Ed Sheeran, the Rolling Stones and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
The band have a string of European festival dates over the summer, and then head to North America in September.
