Announcement follows chart-topping success of new album 'Education, Education, Education & War'
Kaiser Chiefs have announced two huge shows for 2015, playing London’s O2 Arena on February 13, 2015 followed by a homecoming show at Leeds Arena on February 14 – O2 Priority Tickets will be available from 9am on Wednesday 23 April.
The resurgent band are currently celebrating the Number One success of fifth LP ‘Education, Education, Education & War’, the second chart-topping album of their career and the first without drummer Nick Hodgson.
Speaking about the London show, frontman Ricky Wilson commented: “The last few months have been great, we’re enjoying playing the new album and getting our songs ready for our festival slots and then to top it off – we get to start next year at the O2!”
Bassist Simon Rix added: “It’s a great time for the Leeds music scene, there’s a lot going on right now. We’re so happy to be able to play the new Arena again, nothing can match the support we get from the Yorkshire crowds.”
On remaining at the top of the album charts for the second week earlier this month, the band said in a statement: “Two weeks at the top! We haven’t been here for a while, it feels fantastic. Thanks to everyone who stuck by us. It’s been emotional.”
