Kaiser Chiefs to play special one-off homecoming gig in Leeds

Leeds-based rockers the Kaiser Chiefs have announced that they are playing a one-off gig in their home city.

They will entertain those booking Leeds hotels when they shake the foundations of Kirkstall Abbey, an old ruin which was formerly used for quiet prayer and reflection.

Around 10,000 people will get to hear some of the band's classic hits on Saturday September 10th, and the gig comes three years after they played at Leeds United's Elland Road ground.

Front man Ricky Wilson told the Yorkshire Evening Post that the concert is going to be unique.

"As for coming back home, you can’t put your finger on it but there is something special about doing a gig in the place where you grew up. Ambitions are a weird thing because they change all the time, but we’ve already blown all our ambitions apart," he added.

The Kaiser's are big Leeds United fans and took their name from the South African football club which transferred Elland Road legend Lucas Radebe to Yorkshire.
