Kate Nash has continued the Kaiser Chiefs homecoming gig at Leeds United's Elland Road stadium this evening (May 24).

Playing just ahead of The Enemy and the headliners, the London singer-songwriter took the stage around 6pm (BST), playing a set that showcased her debut album 'Made Of Bricks'.

Kicking off with an aggressive version of 'Pumpkin Soup', Nash declared "There's quite a lot of you in here," as Elland Road began to reach its 35,000 capacity.

Playing the likes of 'Skeleton' from behind her piano, Nash switched to guitar for 'Birds' and between songs the singer got a taste of stadium crowds when a member of the audience threw something in appreciation at the stage.

"Oh my god that landed in my drink, and I don't know what it is!" she declared in surprise. "I need a new drink. I hope it was a nice thing, maybe a little flower - that's well funny."

The star got into the stadium spirit herself after 'Don't You Want To Share The Guilt?'.

"What are you chanting?" she asked the noisy crowd. "Oh 'Yorkshire'. I don't know any chants except 'You're shit and I know you are' but I'm not talking to you because you're not shit!"

Following 'Mouthwash', Nash triggered a singalong of her own making with 'Foundations', before wrapping her set up with 'Merry Happy'.

Kate Nash played:

'Pumpkin Soup'
'We Get On'
'Don't You Want To Share The Guilt?'
'Merry Happy'

Speaking to NME.COM after coming offstage Nash explained it was her biggest ever show.

"I was like 'How many thousand?' before I went on," she explained. "It's the biggest gig we've ever done, definitely! I was really nervous before - 'Ooh, I don't want to do it!' - but it was really nice, it's got me really excited about the festivals."

Nash also shed some light on what was thrown at her during the set.

"People were chucking little things at me during the show," she said. "One was a love note and it said 'I fancy you'."

The Enemy are set to play next before Kaiser Chiefs' performance at around 9pm.
