Kaiser Chiefs' Future is Medieval and Very Busy! Full 2012 UK Tour Schedule and Tickets Announced
It could be said that Kaiser Chiefs have also been on the cusp of current affairs and social events, if only for TV-news editors using their song and album-titles to soundtrack dramatic footage of misbehaving humans.
"Employment" can ironically be used at a time when unemployment is heading through the roof, "Yours Truly, Angry Mob" for the moments when another group of anarchists superglues their buttocks to a TopShop window in protest, "Off With Their Heads" could be applied to the ever-increasing prison population, the greedy bankers or Jedward and "I Predict a Riot" could be used whenever some clever smart alec talking-head declares that 'there will be a riot,the next time a news programme uses "I Predict A Riot" during a predicted riot'. You see? Kaiser Chiefs are an editor's dream.
The Leeds lads are also a booking agents best friend - just take a look at their 2012 UK tour for starters. It's bulging at the seams - and they haven't even got this year out of the way yet. They've got V Festival this weekend, trips to Dublin and Belfast before a pair of home-town nights at Kirkstall Abbey in September, both of which are still up for £32.50. Then there's their London Q Awards show at the HMV Forum on 21st October - tickets for which (£25) went on sale today and are flying.
Next year is a matter of a few unlikely towns, rarely-visited cities and typical conurbations such as Llandudno (27th Jan), Guildford (31st), Plymouth (4th Feb), Glasgow (10th), Grimsby (15th), Folkestone (19th) and many more until Hammersmith on the 23rd. 20 gigs in all and everyone a winner! You'll no doubt hear songs from their recent "The Future Is Medieval" album and perhaps new tuneage.
Tickets for the shows go on sale via Allgigs from next Friday (26th) at 9am. Expect to pay around £25.
