Inflatable animals, breasts and massive crowd sing-a-longs, yes the KAISER CHIEFS have stormed yet another festival with their T IN THE PARK set this afternoon (July 10).
Enhancing their status in rock’s premier league with an assured, loud and riotous NME/Radio1 Stage appearance, the band were on top form, and saw one of the festival’s biggest crowds – rumoured to be around 35,000 – sing every word of their set.
Echoing their Glastonbury appearance, the band were again joined by an inflatable animal from the crowd – this time a more modest lobster rather than a giant green dinosaur – before singer Ricky Wilson then encouraged women in the audience to show him their breasts.
”It’s a rule, probably a law in this country, that when a pretty girl sits on a man’s shoulders at a festival she has to show her tits,” he told the crowd before ’Everyday I Love You Less And Less’, adding “Come on, it’s the law!” as several audience members indulged him.
The band then encouraged a clapping and sing-a-long contest between the left and right halves of their audience as they saw the likes of ’I Predict A Riot’ and ’Oh My God’ drive the crowd wild.
The band played the following set:
‘Na Na Na Na Naa’
‘Everyday I Love You Less and Less’
‘Born To Be A Dancer’
‘I Predict A Riot’
‘Time Honoured Tradition’
‘Oh My God’
’Take My Temperature’
Speaking to NME.COM singer Wilson explained that after Glastonbury, Oxegen and now T he’s really enjoying the festival season.
“I’m just having a good time, everyone in the crowd was up for it so I don’t want to miss out on that,” he said. “So I’m just having a good time too, entering into the spirit of things. I’m having the best year of my life.”
