Kaiser Chiefs recall Isle of Wight Festival gig

Performing at the Isle of Wight Festival this summer was one of the highlights of the year for Ricky Wilson, lead singer with Kaiser Chiefs.

The Leeds pop-rock band were one of the biggest groups on the bill for the event in June and Wilson explained that the warm-up gigs they played were "great".

He told the Yorkshire Evening Post: "Then we did the Isle of Wight Festival and then I thought, 'No, this is it'."

Wilson went on to add that the year just got even better for Kaiser Chiefs as it went on, recalling how much fun he has had on the road over the last few months.

"I've never enjoyed playing as much as I have this summer," he noted.

Kaiser Chiefs are set to play a pair of dates at Kirkstall Abbey over the course of the weekend (September 10th and 11th), before heading to play gigs all over Europe next month.
