Indie heroes Kaiser Chiefs will deliver an exclusive set as part of the Royal Albert Home sessions.
In these strange times, closing the Hall’s doors is the best way to look after the world, but we are now opening a (virtual) window for you to experience some of the most talented artists around.
The Leeds band have had a string of anthemic hits such as Oh My God, I Predict A Riot, Everyday I Love You Less and Less, Never Miss A Beat and Hole In My Soul.
The band have released seven original studio albums which includes their Mercury nominated debut, Employment , its number 1 follow up, Yours Truly, Angry Mob, chart-topping Education, Education, Education, and War and their most recent acclaimed album, Duck.
“Playing the Royal Albert Hall is always a big deal, it’s an amazing building and being part of the history makes it very special. We were very pleased to be asked to take part in the series of gigs to help keep this historic venue alive while they can’t open to the public in the traditional way. We first played the Hall as a support band back in 2005 and hopefully we can return there when all this is over. Obviously we can’t be together at the moment, but we’ll be doing our best to turn our spare rooms into stages. And look forward to seeing you there.” KCs x
