THE Kaiser Chiefs have announced that they will perform in Inverness this summer.
Performing as part of LCC Live’s Live in the City series of concerts, the indie-rockers will perform in Northern Meeting Park, on Saturday, August 17.
Fronted by lead singer and former The Voice judge Ricky Wilson, the Kaiser Chiefs first burst on to the world stage following the release of their debut album in 2005. The band has scored numerous hits including Oh My God, Never Miss a Beat and Ruby, their infamous number one hit. Their sixth record Stay Together was released in 2016 and reached number four in the UK album chart.
Ricky said: “We’re really excited to be playing in Inverness this August as we’ve heard great things about the Highlands. We’ll put on an outstanding show and will pick out some of our best-known smash hits to perform, so come and join us, and let’s make it an unforgettable night.”
Ricky is joined in the band by guitarist Andrew ‘Whitey’ White, Nick ‘Peanut’ Baines on keyboards, bassist Simon Rix and drummer Vijay Mistry.
Claire Kidger of LCC Live, said: “We’re delighted to confirm Kaiser Chiefs to the line-up for Live in the City in Inverness. They always put so much energy into producing a fantastic show, and we can’t wait to see them perform their latest and greatest hits.”
