The Manic Street Preachers are returning to play a gig in their hometown for the first time in 25 years.
The rockers, who opened Cardiff's pounds 15m library last year, will perform at Blackwood Miners' Institute for a show to be broadcast on Radio 2 next month.
Bassist Nicky Wire said: "It has been nearly 25 years since we have played in our home town of Blackwood.
"We are thrilled and excited to be returning to a venue where we have spent many hours honing our snooker skills - but this was before it became a live venue."
The 41-year-old dad of two revealed he feared getting stage fright on the night.
He said: "It will be the smallest gig that we have played in a long time, which will no doubt lead to chaos and severe nerves but hopefully a night of hometown ecstasy."
The Blackwood show takes place on Thursday, December 2. To be in with a chance of being part of the audience, go to bbc.co.uk /radio2 or call 03700 100 200. The ticket giveaway is open until 5.20pm on Thursday.
