Kaiser Chiefs have confirmed they will headline London’s 02 Arena on February 13, followed by a giant homecoming at Leeds First Direct Arena on February 14 2015.

The band have just spent two weeks at the top of the UK Album Chart with their fifth studio album, ‘Education, Education, Education & War’.

The album debuted at No.1 and held on to the position for a second week – as the band said, “2 weeks at the top! We haven’t been here for a while, it feels fantastic. Thanks to everyone who stuck by us. It’s been emotional.”

Currently on tour in Europe, this will be Kaiser Chiefs’ second performance at London’s O2 Arena as they actually first performed as part of the venue’s opening on June 23, 2007.

Looking forward to the big night in London, singer Ricky Wilson said today: “The last few months have been great - we’re enjoying playing the new album and getting our songs ready for our festival slots and then, to top it off, we get to start next year at the 02!”

Speaking of the Leeds Arena date, bassist Simon Rix said, “It’s a great time for the Leeds music scene, there’s a lot going on right now. We’re so happy to be able to play the new Arena again, nothing can match the support we get from the Yorkshire crowds.”

It’s a busy summer for Kaiser Chiefs with the band set to play at V Festival, T In The Park and Glastonbury festivals alongside a number of European dates plus a North American tour.

Fans can access a www.kaiserchiefs.com presale from 9am on Wednesday 23rd April.

Tickets go on general sale on Friday 25 April at 9:00am via GIGSANDTOURS.COM or on 0844 811 0051
