Jennifer and I don’t have a whole LOT of music taste common ground but the sonic venn diagram DMZ does have some pretty good bands residing in it, one of them being the Kaiser Chiefs. We first saw The Kaisers in Sydney in December 2005 supporting the Foo Fighers. They were relatively unknown then and had just released their first album ( Employment ) – in our opinion they blew the Foo’s away that night and I became a fan.
This year (2015) we’ve seen them twice – the first was February and then at Kendall Calling (subject of a future post!)
This was a gig packed with great songs and great energy as the Kaiser’s tend to deliver. It was an awesome night. Ricky Wilson is such a wee ball of energy the whole time bouncing about and spent most of the gig wearing someone’s hat that was thrown out from the audience. He even spent a few songs hanging off the second floor balcony.
This was the setlist.
