Welsh rock outfit Stereophonics have moved a major July 21 performance at the U.K.'s Chepstow Racecourse to the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff due to health concerns stemming from the outbreak of foot-and-mouth disease. A similar show scheduled for July 14 at Donnington Park will go on as planned. The Black Crowes and Ash will be on the bill for both performances, with other acts to be announced.

"We are naturally very disappointed that we have had to move the event but with the continuing progress of foot-and-mouth it became clear that bringing 60,000 people to a rural area was not in the best interests of the farming communities," the band said in a statement. Information on ticket exchange can be found on the band's official Web site.

The Stereophonics' new V2 album "Just Enough Education to Perform" debuted at No. 1 on the U.K. album chart last weekend. The single "Mr. Writer" is No. 28 on the U.K. singles chart this week.

In other U.K. festival news, Coldplay, David Gray, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Foo Fighters are among the top acts confirmed for the V2001 festival, set for Aug. 18 at Chelmsford's Hyland Park and Aug. 19 at Staffordshire's Weston Park. Last year's event was highlighted by performances by Travis, Underworld, Barenaked Ladies, and Richard Ashcroft.
