Kaiser Chiefs have announced a huge show at Margate venue Dreamland this September. The indie veterans will play the 15,000 capacity outdoor venue on September 5, as part of a wider run of UK shows.
Special guests for the show are expected to be announced soon, with tickets on sale at 9am this Friday (July 2). Visit the band’s official website for further information.
Other artists set to play the Margate Dreamland over the coming months include Frank Turner, James, The Specials and Nile Rodgers and Chic. Last month, Caribou also announced a show at the vintage theme park, which takes place on August 26.
Kaiser Chiefs’ much-loved debut album Employment turned 15 last year. Released in 2005, the album contained the singles “I Predict A Riot”, “Oh My God”, “Everyday I Love You Less And Less”, reaching Number Two in the UK charts and going on the become certified six times platinum. However, amid the trend of bands from their ’00s era going out to tour their early albums in full, the Kaisers said that they aren’t entirely sold on the idea yet.
Speaking to NME about the chances of an anniversary show last summer, Ricky Wilson said: “In a world where everyone’s going out on tour to celebrate the seventh anniversary of their first record…I don’t want to do it.
“I’d rather do one year of Duck. I think that would be more fun – for us and the audience.”
Last October, meanwhile, Kaiser Chiefs shared a new Halloween-themed song, “Zombie Prom”, their first new music since 2019 LP, Duck.
