Kaiser Chiefs announce UK dates for 2006

The band will also play their biggest show

Kaiser Chiefs have announced tour details for 2006 which will see the band play their biggest UK show to date.

Following on from their triumphant headlining slot on the O2 NME Rock ‘N’ Roll Riot Tour which wrapped up at Glasgow Academy on Sunday (October 30), the group have revealed their plans to head out on the road again next year.

A statement on the Kaisers’ official website www.kaiserchiefs.co.uk, said: “Thanks to everyone who came to see us on the UK tour just finished. These were some of our favourite gigs ever, you proved there’s no place like home!”


Kaiser Chiefs added that the 2006 dates would put their debut album to bed before they start working on the follow-up.

“When we announced the (Rock ‘N’ Roll Riot dates) back in July our message board was full of venom within hours as all the dates sold out immediately,” they explained. “So we’ve decided to play one final run of ‘Employment’ gigs in April 2006.”

Special guests on the tour have been confirmed as Graham Coxon and Polysics.

Tickets for the shows go on general sale this Saturday (November 5) at 9am.

Kaiser Chiefs will play:

Glasgow SECC (April 19)


London Alexandra Palace (21)

Plymouth Pavilion (24)

Brighton Convention Centre (25)

Birmingham NIA (26)

Leeds Millennium Square (29)
