Ricky Wilson and co make 'History' in Exeter

Kaiser Chiefs kicked off their UK tour with a sold-out show in Exeter last night (November 21).

Playing the city’s Westpoint Arena the band, supported by We Are Scientists and The Little Ones, peppered their set with a new song and live debut.

’Yours Truly, Angry Mob’ album track ‘Love’s Not A Competition (But I’m Winning)’ got an airing, with drummer Nick Hodgson swapping his drums to play second guitar on the track.

The gig also saw the band playing new track ‘You Want History’ with an extra percussionist, Dan Little, joining the band onstage for the groove-led song which recalled in part The Rapture‘s ‘House Of Jealous Lovers’. They also played another new track, ‘Never Miss A Beat’.
