We predict a riot - oh, here it is…

They started 2005 opening the NME AWARDS TOUR, then stole GLASTONBURY and bagged a MERCURY PRIZE nomination along the way, so how do the Kaiser Chiefs top that?

By teaming-up with NME for the 02 Rock N Roll Riot Tour.

With The Cribs and Maximo Park also hitching along for the ride, this tour promises to be the hottest ticket come the autumn.

“I’m looking forward to it, it’s going to be brilliant,” the Kaiser Chiefs’ lead singer Ricky Wilson told NME.COM. “We wanted The Cribs because they write fantastic songs and Maximo Park are writing great songs too. We’re all leaders of the pack really, so it’s a really strong bill. People are going to be very upset when they can’t come, so buy your tickets early.”

NME’s 02 Rock n Roll Riot visits the following modern pop arenas:

Manchester Apollo (October 15)

Leeds Town Hall (18)

Birmingham Academy (22)

London Brixton Academy (25)

Glasgow Academy (29)

Tickets go on sale on July 22 at 9am. For ticket availability, [url=]go to NME Tickets or call them on 0870 1 663 663.
