The sound quality was good, very clean and true to the original CD versions, with soloing that was (for that night) beyond comparison. All of the band members played there best and it was obvious by the quality of the end result, a fantastic concert!

Sound: Stereophonics, I was told, were rubbish live but after seeing them I can prove the critics wrong, they provided an excellent performance and even though I was sitting the atmosphere was so good nobody cared.

Perfomance: I thought that there was not enough crowd interaction, but it was not devoid of it. The concert opened with Superman and closed with Dakota, two of the best songs from their new album. Though there was little interaction between the band and the crowd, the audience participation was plentiful and really added to the atmosphere, especially during the song "1000 Trees" and "I'm Just Looking." The stage set was nothing special but the stage did have two large monitors ether side which shown footage of the crowd and of the band. This was a good performance! "The Dead '60s," the support band was also very good, promoting their new self-titled album. It was very much the support band you would imagine for a band such as this, a very Indie band that had cowbells aplenty! I would like to hear their new album! // 8
Overall Impression: Tuesday September 13, 2005 was a good concert, though not being a great fan of the Stereophonics I am glad that I went to see them and I may go and see them again, for the atmosphere if anything. The support was very good though not as good as the Headliner (as you can imagine), and I think 27.50 was a fair price for what was a very good show. // 9
