Just after their 99th birthday this week Leeds United Football Club have proudly announced the first of several exciting events to celebrate 100 years of the club, bringing hometown heroes Kaiser Chiefs back.
The band behind million-selling debut album ‘Employment’, number 1 single ‘Ruby’, number 1 album ‘Education, Education, Education and War’, and anthems such as ‘I Predict a Riot’ and ‘Oh My God’, will be returning home on Saturday 8th June at Elland Road Stadium, the stadium they headlined in 2008.
Kaiser Chiefs will be supported by a stellar bill including London indie-rockers The Vaccines who have previously headlined Millennium Square in Leeds, as well as Sheffield sensations The Sherlocks who exploded onto the indie scene over the last two years and now sell out huge rooms across the country.
Speaking about being the first centenary show announced, Kaiser Chief’s bassist and LUFC season ticket holder Simon Rix said:
Leeds United’s Executive Director Paul Bell welcomed the first announcement with a statement:
