Celebrating 20 years today!

If you've ever stepped inside the Principality (Millennium) Stadium, you'll know what a feeling it is!

Well, that's my evaluation of one of my favourite places in the world.

Today, 26th June 2019 marks 20 years since it was opened to the public, and Wales played South Africa ... AND WON!

 

Do you remember when you first visited? I remember mine really vividly.

It was to watch the Red Hot Chili Peppers play a sell-out show, with support from the legendary James Brown! Believe it or not, that was back in 2004 and to this date, one of the sweatiest gigs I've ever been to!

Since then, I've seen loads more gigs including Take That, Coldplay, Paul McCartney and more recently Pink and Ed Sheeran.

Of course, as a massive rugby fan, I've watched loads of games and buried my head in my hands more times than I can remember but I do recall nearly losing my voice when we lifted the Grand Slam trophy earlier this year after beating Ireland in style in the last year of Gatland's reign.

But above it all, I've made amazing memories with my friends and family. Including taking my Grandad to his first ever game at the Stadium to watch the All blacks play. That was in 2017 but still talks as if it only happened yesterday!

Thank you Principality/Millennium Stadium for being one of the shining jewels in the Welsh Crown!
