Pumping groundbreaking music into the Brixton night air – The Kaiser Chiefs at London’s Brixton Academy!
Formed in Leeds in 1996, the Kaiser Chiefs have been one of the most succesful new British bands of the 21st century. The band’s debut album in 2005 sold three million copies and was short-listed for the Mercury prize. In 2006 the band won three Brit awards for their punky-style brand of rock/pop music. Snappy catchy sing along tunes are the flagship of this highly thought of young Yorkshire pop group.
The Kaiser Chiefs London gig 2013 is on Friday 1st March 2013, this catchy British band will be playing at London’s Brixton Academy. This atmospheric music venue is one of London’s best-loved entertainment facilities, that combines a music venue, nightclub and theatre.
Located in the recently ‘trendified’ Brixton, the Brixton Academy has seen many an inspiring, adored and sell-out artist thrill their audience with ground-breaking showmanship since the venue opened in 1983.
Although the Brixton Academy’s history dates back much further than the early 1980s. In 1929, the venue opened as a theatre and cinema and was known as an “Astoria” theatre. Part of the Academy’s appeal is that is still has many of the original features of the “Astoria” in tact, such as its Art Deco interior and the proscenium arch.
In 1972 the Astoria was closed and was replaced by the Sundown Centre Rock Centre, which debuted the venue’s unrivalled presence as the place for rock stars to perform to their rocking fans. The success of the Sundown Centre was however short lived and four months later the venue was knocked down.
Following a comprehensive redevelopment, in 1981, the Astoria was reopened, which attracted a constant stream of only the biggest names in rock and pop. In 1983, this historical building was reopened as the Brixton Academy.
Performing some of the catchiest singles released in Britain in recent years, such as “Ruby”, “Every Day I Love You Less”, “I Predict a Riot” and “ Oh my God”, the Kaiser Chiefs forthcoming gig in London promises to be in-keeping with this underground and ubiquitously popular venue’s objection to propel some truly groundbreaking music into the Brixton night air.
The Kaiser Chiefs London gig 2013 should not disappoint.
