Gaz Coombes, Skinny Living, and Marsicans added to the bill
Futuresound Events and Leeds United Football Club are proud to announce the full line-up celebrating 100 years of the football club, bringing hometown heroes Kaiser Chiefs back to Elland Road, the stadium they headlined in 2008.
In a year when the club’s promotional push to the Premier League has never been more exciting the Leeds band behind million-selling debut albums and anthems such as ‘I Predict a Riot’ and ‘Oh My God’, will be returning home on Saturday 8th June at Elland Road Stadium.
Kaiser Chiefs will be supported by a stellar bill including London indie-rockers The Vaccines who have previously headlined Millennium Square in Leeds, as well as Sheffield sensations The Sherlocks who exploded onto the indie scene over the last two years and now sell out huge rooms across the country.
Added to the bill is Britpop legend Gaz Coombes, the former frontman to chart-toppers Supergrass. The Mercury Prize nominated solo artist returns to Leeds following a recent packed-out show at Church. Joining Gaz will be Wakefield lads Skinny Living, a band that have grown from busking on Yorkshire streets to headlining Leeds University’s Stylus venue and signing to RCA Records (Sony). The final act to join the line-up are regional stars Marsicans who have in recent months enjoyed a huge slot at Leeds Festival’s Radio One stage and sold out shows across the city.
Speaking about being the first centenary show announced, Kaiser Chief’s bassist and LUFC season ticket holder Simon Rix said: “Last time we played Elland Road it was a BIG celebration. A great gig for the city. And promotion. Well nearly. 10 years later it’s time for another go. We’re really looking forward being part of the Leeds United centenary celebrations. And the promotion party of course. See you all in June.”
