YOU'VE Gotta Go There To Come Back, Stereophonics
fourth album, is well on course to become one of the biggest selling
albums of the year so far.
Having sold over 100,000 in the
first week, giving it the most week one sales since Coldplays
A Rush Of Blood To The
Head, the album has now shipped enough copies to go platinum.
Produced for the first time by Kelly Jones, the album was recorded
last year after having been written on the road over the course
of 2001 and early 2002.
Stereophonics will be touring in November and December, their
first UK Arena tour since 2001.
Rapidly selling out after the tickets went on sale, several extra
dates have been added due to demand. Tickets for their recent

a veritable fan frenzy.
