Kaiser Chiefs, fresh from their UK No. 1 album ‘Education, Education, Education & War’ in June and live appearances including two at the Glastonbury Festival, are already planning their 2015 campaign — even before they’ve played their North American tour this month and a major UK and European itinerary in the autumn.
The English band have a number of European dates in the coming days, including the closing concert for the Invictus Games at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London on September 14. They then begin their North American run in Seattle on the 17th, the first of eight dates. The European leg kicks off in Paris on October 7, running until the 20th, and they also have dates booked in Tokyo and Singapore in November.
But now the Kaisers have added a whole new run of dates in their home country, with ten new British dates for 2015 set to commence on January 31 at Liverpool’s Echo Arena. They’ve confirmed that their support on those shows will be Public Service Broadcasting, the band who released their debut album ‘Inform – Educate – Entertain‘ last May and saw it reach No. 21 in the national chart.
The 2015 tour will include a London show at the 02 Arena on January 31, and frontman Ricky Wilson says: “Looking forward to the big night in London. The last few months have been great, we’re enjoying playing the new album and getting our songs ready for our festival slots and then to top it off – we get to start next year at the O2!”
