Title: 54,000 For The Manics' Street Party
Publication: Daily Mirror
Date: Wednesday 6th October 1999


Millennium gig will be the band's biggest yet.

Welsh supergroup the Manic Street Preachers vowed yesterday to host the party of the century on Millennium Eve.

And they have promised there will be no rip-off prices for the 54,000 fans packing into Cardiff's Millennium Stadium on the big night.

Tickets will cost only £30 and the Manics have also pledged drinks will be sold at regular prices.

Singer James Dean Bradfield said: "The stadium will be the cheapest pub in Cardiff that night."

Even so, the show is expected to generate more than pounds 1.5million - a record for a rock show in Wales.

Bradfield added: "It'll be our biggest-ever concert and the perfect way to see in the new century."

The top-selling band from Blackwood, Gwent, revealed negotiations for the show - which will mark their 10th anniversary, started more than two years ago.

Bassist Nicky Wire said: "When we heard about the plans, we just had to be involved. It's going to be fantastic. I'm getting goosebumps just thinking about it."

James, Nicky and drummer Sean Moore each have their name on a special paving stone at the £126m stadium.

And yesterday they laid a fourth stone in memory of guitarist Richie Edwards who vanished over four years ago.
