They were meant to be safely in Australia, but now the Stereophonics are flying back to help ensure Live 8 boosts their album sales too ("is a roaring success"). Kelly Jones slapped his own back heartily:

"We all really wanted to be involved in the Live 8 gig. It doesn't take much for a band to sing a few songs and help bring awareness to a much bigger issue that'll help so many other people suffering in the world, so that's why we are playing. Long live rock n roll!"

Because, of course, if the Stereophonics aren't there to do their song about how horrible journalists are, nobody will know about Africa, will they?
