One of Britain’s most treasured bands, the multi-award-winning Kaiser Chiefs, will kick off their nationwide UK arena tour on 2 November in Swansea with live favourites The Fratellis and The Sherlocks.
Formed in Leeds in 2000, Kaiser Chiefs are one of the leading bands of their generation. Fronted by the magnetic Ricky Wilson with Simon Rix on bass, Andrew ‘Whitey’ White on guitar, Nick ‘Peanut’ Baines on keyboards and drummer Vijay Mistry, the band were Mercury Prize nominated for their debut album, ‘Employment’ and went on to win three BRIT awards, an Ivor Novello award for Album of the Year, and have sold over 8 million albums worldwide.
Kaiser Chiefs have solidly made their mark as heroes within the British music scene, with absolutely no sign of them slowing down. The band have released seven studio albums to date, including chart-toppers, ‘Yours Truly, Angry Mob’ and ‘Education, Education, Education & War,’ plus their much-praised 2019 and Top 3 album ‘Duck’. Watch this space for new music to come. Kaiser Chiefs have also enjoyed multiple Top 10 singles, including the infamous No.1 hit ‘Ruby’ plus anthems such as ‘Oh My God’, ‘I Predict A Riot’, ‘Everyday I Love You Less and Less’ and ‘Never Miss A Beat’.
Glaswegian trio The Fratellis will also perform, following a rollercoaster year in 2021 which saw them unleash a new album alongside a barrage of singles and collaborations, before rounding the year off by winning the prestigious King Tut’s Songwriting Award at the Scottish Music Awards. They’ll perform songs from their new album, ‘Half Drunk Under a Full Moon’ as well as fan-favourites and indie anthems such as ‘Chelsea Dagger’.
Kaiser Chiefs’ Yorkshire neighbours The Sherlocks will open each night, completing a star-studded line-up. The Sheffield quartet have swiftly grown to become one of the UK’s most exciting live bands. Selling out tours across the nation, they have also achieved chart success with two UK Top 10 albums.
Featuring three of the most successful British guitar bands, these autumn 2022 UK arena shows are not to be missed. Each band are masters of their craft, their set-lists packed with hits and an unrivaled energy - nothing less than a ‘reyt good time’.
