Kaiser Chiefs to play Leeds Arena opening gig
Date Posted: 28/11/12
Leeds-born band The Kaiser Chiefs are to play a special one-off concert to mark the opening of the city's arena on Friday, September 13th next year.
The band are widely considered to be one of the city's best musical exports and tickets are expected to sell rapidly for Kaiser Chiefs Return To Leeds when they go on sale at 10:00 GMT on Friday, November 30th.
Fans are expected to book Leeds hotels to catch the band for a special homecoming gig and the group will be suitably warmed up after what is looking like a hectic schedule.
There is a Kaiser Chiefs UK tour planned in February, as well as dates in South America and a support berth on Green Day's UK & European tour.
Band member Simon Rix said that "having played everywhere in Leeds from the Duchess (RIP) to Elland Road, we are massively happy that Leeds has built somewhere new for us to play".
