Indie rockers the Kasier Chiefs have announced a summer date at Doncaster Racecourse.

Town Moor is ‘predicting a riot’ now tickets are on sale to see the triple Brit Award winning band at the Doncaster on Saturday, June 28 after racing.

The critically acclaimed Leeds-based band, best known for the anthemic top ten hit I Predict A Riot, and the number one hit single Ruby, will take to the stage to perform a string of UK hit singles as well as new tracks from their soon to be released fifth studio album Education, Education, Education & War, on sale on March 31.

Kaiser Chiefs comprise lead vocalist Ricky Wilson – who is currently gracing TV screens on BBC One talent show The Voice - guitarist Andrew “Whitey” White, bassist Simon Rix, keyboardist Nick “Peanut” Baines and current drummer Vijay Mistry.

Mark Spincer, managing director at Doncaster Racecourse said the gig, one of three music events taking place at the Town Moor over the summer months, was a real coup for the venue and for the town: “We are delighted to announce that the fantastic Kaiser Chiefs, who are currently enjoying a revival with the release of a new album, are the third big name music act to take to the stage to perform at the Town Moor over the summer months.

“Their memorable hits are guaranteed to get the crowds singing and rocking along.

“Hailing from Yorkshire, they’re bound to strike a chord with music lovers in Doncaster and beyond. We’re expecting large crowds for a great day’s racing and some top-class entertainment.”

Last year Doncaster Racecourse attracted some 40,000 people to its summer concerts which saw The Saturdays, Lawson, Ronan Keating and Scouting for Girls take to the stage over three events.

The Town Moor track recently announced that legendary rockers Status Quo will perform live after racing on Saturday May 17 and James Blunt will take to the stage on Saturday August 16.

Music and horse racing fans alike are being urged to book tickets as soon as possible for what is predicted to be a sell-out event. Adult tickets start from just £31, children’s tickets are £11. Hospitality options available from £103.20.

All tickets and hospitality for the event include racing followed by Kaiser Chiefs live after racing.
