Our weekly round up of this week's biggest new tours, shows and events.
Leeds rockers Kaiser Chiefs have added two new dates to their 2020 UK tour.
The new shows will see the band perform at Motorpoint Arena, Nottingham on Friday 17 January 2020 and at Bridlington Spa on Saturday 18 January 2020.
Tickets for the gigs will go on sale at 9:00 on Friday 28 June 2019.
As with the previously announced dates, they’ll be joined by special guests Razorlight.
The upcoming tour ends with a date at London’s massive The O2 on Saturday 1 February 2020.
The band, who broke onto the scene with 2005 debut Employment, released their most recent Stay Together full length in 2016. They are now gearing up to release Duck in July 2019, featuring recent single Record Collection.
Their huge catalogue of hits includes the iconic Oh My God, Ruby and I Predict A Riot, as well as the more recent Coming Home and Parachute.
The latest tour, which follows their more intimate headline dates earlier this year, will see them take to nine venues across the UK.
The band is led by vocalist Ricky Wilson, who became a huge household name during his time as a coach on then BBC series The Voice. He’s joined by guitarist Andrew White, bassist Simon Rix, keyboarding Nick Baines, and drummer Vijay Mistry – who joined the band in 2013.
Each of their six studio albums to date have reached the Top 10 on the official UK album chart, with their most recent peaking in the Top 5. Duck is hoping to follow suit come July.
