Kaiser Chiefs perform at Carlisle Racecourse

Live updates

Second-largest crowd in Carlisle Racecourse's history

More than 10,000 people watched the Kaiser Chiefs last night, the second-largest crowd in Carlisle Racecourse's history

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."
