New album and a September 2011 homecoming for Kaiser Chiefs - tickets Friday 10th June
Stomping, rabble-rousing, South Yorkshire Friday-nighters the Kaiser Chiefs have announced that they'll be playing a homecoming gig in Leeds in September 2011.
Their fourth studio album, 'The Future is Medieval', was released on 3rd June and, with the three previous LPs reaching No 2 or higher in the UK album chart, the new record has a lot to live up to.
Ricky Wilson and co are taking no chances, spending the summer airing the new material (and some beery classics, no doubt) at a series of gigs and festival appearances. They play two shows at Falmouth Princes Pavilion on 7th and 8th June, before next weekend's Isle of Wight festival.
Kaiser Chiefs headline London's Electric Ballroom on 16th June before playing at Hard Rock Calling 2011 Hyde Park), Glastonbury 2011 and V Festival 2011. The homecoming show is scheduled for Leeds' Kirkstall Abbey on Saturday 10th September.
By which time, Kaiser Chief fans will know whether they're to be the next Simon Cowell. Fans can pay £7.50 to download 'The Future is Medieval' and can create their own version of the record by choosing their own tracklisting and artwork, selecting 10 songs from the available 20. They will also earn £1 each time their version is purchased by someone else. Sounds a bit too clever for my liking; a bit gimmicky. I'm afraid it's a 'no' from me.
Tickets for the Kirkstall Abbey gig will go on sale from 9:30 on Friday 10th June.
Extra Kirkstall Abbey date added!
Predictably, tickets for the Saturday gig sold-out pretty sharp, but fear not - the band have added a second date at the Abbey on Sunday 11th September. Tickets available now!
