Centenary concert success with Kaiser Chiefs

Centenary concert success with Kaiser Chiefs

Over 16,000 fans turn out for centenary concert at Elland Road.

To kick-off the club's special centenary year celebrations a concert was held at Elland Road on Saturday (8th June) headlined by local superstars the Kaiser Chiefs.

Over 16,000 fans turned out for the concert where they were treated to a day-long event of music and entertainment with sets from other special guests including; London indie-rockers The Vaccines, The Sherlocks who hail from Sheffield, Britpop legend Gaz Coombes, Leeds United supporters Skinny Living and the Marsicans who recently enjoyed a huge slot at Leeds Festival.

This gig was the first in a programme of many events planned to celebrate the club's centenary with the headline act rocking it in front of a packed crowd, performing some of their best loved hits along with some of their new material.

Those in attendance also went wild for former footballer turned TV pundit Chris Kamara, who had a spell with the club in 1990, as he introduced the Kaiser Chiefs to the stage towards the end of the night.

The centenary year will follow a season of exciting football, sell-out crowds at Elland Road and a bond that is stronger than ever with the city of Leeds and the club’s loyal fanbase. Keep an eye out for the next special occasion and content arranged as part of our centenary year.
