Kaiser Chiefs are set to play York Racecourse as part of the popular Music Showcase Weekend next year.
The huge band will play the racecourse on the evening of Friday 26 July 2024, it was exclusively revealed on YorkMix Radio this morning (Thursday).
They will be the first act the venue have had back for a third time.
James Brennan, York Racecourse’s head of marketing and sponsorship, said: “It is great news that Kaiser Chiefs, a band who bring real energy to every show, will be back performing with us in their home county, the atmosphere should be something special.”
The BRIT award winners and multi-platinum selling band are known for their ultra-high energy gigs and epic rock anthems.
They will be performing songs from their long chart career likely to include’ ‘I Predict A Riot,’ ‘Everyday I Love You Less And Less, ‘and ‘Ruby’ plus more recent material as the band are currently working on their eighth album, produced by Rudimental’s Amir Amor, with guest musicians including the legendary Nile Rodgers.
James Brennan continued, ”On each of their appearances on the Knavesmire, in 2013 then 2016 , the boys entertained a large and enthusiastic crowd I can’t wait for more of the same, next July.”
On the racecourse itself, the EBF Lyric Fillies Stakes will be the centerpiece of a six-race card. Won this July by Midnight Mile, trained in Malton by Richard Fahey, the Listed contest is likely to attract a high-quality field.
It promises to be a fun-filled 24 hours for racing and music fans as the following day the combination of top class racing and live music will continue.
The musical entertainment for that day is yet tobe confirmed. While the racing action will include the Sky Bet York Stakes, a Group Two contest that attracts a field from the top stables.
A full field is likely to enter the prime betting heat of the afternoon, the valuable Sky Bet Dash, a six-furlong handicap.
