See Kelly Jones and crew round off this year's glittering ceremony with a set of their greatest hits.
Stereophonics closed The Global Awards 2020 with Very.co.uk with an amazing set of their greatest hits onstage at London's Eventim Apollo Hammersmith.
The band won the Best Indie category and were also honoured with the Global Special Award in recognition of their remarkable career.
The Welsh group - comprised of Kelly Jones, Richard Jones, Adam Zindani and Jamie Morrison - were celebrated for their amazing career lasting over 25 years and their contribution to music and entertainment.
Kelly Jones and co closed the ceremony with a selection of their greatest hits, including C'est La Vie, Maybe Tomorrow, Bust This Town and Dakota.
The veteran rockers were asked by Radio X's Rich Wolfenden if they had any advice for anyone out there wanting to stat a band and their answer was pretty simple.
“I think with a lot of the new artists out there now, it’s become very apparent that it’s all about the song, you know," said frontman Kelly.
“It’s always been about the songwriting for us, and these days with streaming and that sort of stuff it’s much more apparent that you have to have really good songs. "
"So I would stick to the songs. It’s not about any bandwagon or fashion or anything like that.
“I think if you have the good tunes and you’re just honest about what you’re doing, that’s the best advice I could give.”
The winners of The Global Awards 2020 with Very.co.uk were crowned at a star-studded ceremony tonight (Thursday 5 March) at London’s Eventim Apollo Hammersmith, hosted by Capital Breakfast’s Roman Kemp, Smooth Radio’s Kate Garraway and Classic FM and Smooth presenter Myleene Klass.
The glittering show featured spectacular live performances from some of the world’s biggest artists – Camila Cabello, Ellie Goulding, Tones And I, Aitch and Aled Jones & Russell Watson.
You can listen to all the highlights again on the Global Player app.
The Dakota outfit are currently on the UK dates on their Kind 2020 tour. They're also hitting the festival circuit, where they'll be visiting the likes of Ireland, Switzerland and The Netherlands.
