Kaiser Chiefs' Simon Rix told ITV Border they preferred to be in Carlisle rather than watching the Tour de France. The band are from Leeds, where the Yorkshire leg of the race departed from on Saturday:
More than 10,000 people watched the Kaiser Chiefs last night, the second-largest crowd in Carlisle Racecourse's history
– Geraldine McKay, General Manager Carlisle Racecourse
What an unbelievable evening! We had some great racing, including a photo-finish in the feature race. And then the Kaiser Chiefs werejust something else. The response from the crowd, both in their numbers and enthusiasm, really was special and I'd like to thank everyone for their support. Ricky Wilson (lead singer) is a supreme showman - and we've got Jessie J here next on Sunday July 27 and then Wet Wet Wet at Ultimate Ladies' Night on Monday August 4. It's going to be along, hot summer at Carlisle Racecourse."
Hundreds of horses were ridden through the streets of Annan to thousands of cheering townsfolk lining the streets.
