The Kaiser Chiefs have announced they are to play at The Spa Bridlington on Saturday, 16 February 2013.

The five piece indie rock band from Leeds re-established themselves as one of the UK’s most popular groups after performing at the closing ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games.

The group’s debut album, ‘Employment’, was released in 2005 and enjoyed international success with over three million copies sold and was shortlisted for the Mercury Prize. Kaiser Chiefs’ second album, ‘Yours Truly, Angry Mob’ yielded ‘Ruby’, a number one single in the UK. They released their third album, ‘Off with Their Heads’, in 2008 and after a three-year break released ‘The Future Is Medieval’ in June 2011.

Earlier this year during an appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman, David spoke to band member Nick Hodgson about buying the Kaiser Chiefs’ drum set and after a brief discussion between the pair an undisclosed price was agreed.

Andrew Aldis, general manager of The Spa Bridlington, said: “This is the third major act we have announced in a week, to perform at The Spa Bridlington, and follows the announcements we have made about Lenny Henry and Jack White. It is testimony to the superb venue we have.”

Tickets go on general sale at 9am on Wednesday August 29 and will be available from The Spa box office (01262) 678258
