Manic Street Preachers - Manic Street Preachers Perform With Rugby Player

Manic Street Preachers took to the stage with an extra guitar player after recruiting Welsh rugby star Jamie Roberts for a gig in Melbourne, Australia.

The band is currently Down Under to play a series of concerts to coincide with the British and Irish Lions' 10-match rugby tour, and they showed their appreciation for the team by inviting keen musician Roberts to join them on stage at Melbourne's Festival Hall on Friday night (28Jun13).

The sportsman, who is a huge fan of the Welsh band, played rhythm guitar on the group's anthem You Love Us and subsequently posted a picture of his big moment on his Twitter.com page with the caption, "One of the best experiences I've ever had. Incredible."

Speaking before the tour, Roberts said, "I have had a chat with (frontman) James Dean Bradfield... and he suggested I get up on stage to play a bit of rhythm guitar... This Is My Truth, Tell Me Yours (Manic Street Preachers album) was one of the albums I grew up with and one of those albums I know the word to every song... James is a wonderful bloke, a true Welshman... and it is great to see them playing gigs in Australia alongside the Lions."
