Leeds United win means busy weekend for Kaiser Chiefs

More tickets available as Elland Road gig builds up to play-off final

Kaiser Chiefs are set for the weekend of their lives, after their beloved Leeds United made it into the Football League Play-Off Final last night (May 15).

The team came from behind – after losing the first leg 2-1 – to beat Carlisle United 2-0 on the night, thus winning the two-legged tie 3-2 on aggregate.

It means Leeds will now play either Doncaster Rovers or Southend United who play tonight (May 16) at the Wembley final next Sunday (25) – and the timing could not be better for Kaiser Chiefs.


The band play a massive homecoming show the day beforehand (24) at Leeds United‘s Elland Road stadium, the perfect build-up to the final.

NME.COM can reveal that some last-minute tickets have become available for the gig after the film crew covering the gig decided they did not need the extra space.
