The five-piece indie stars, who are fronted by ITV's The Voice coach Ricky WIlson, will set up stage on Leeds United's home turf for the first time in almost ten years.

Warrington is looking to become IBF Featherweight World Champion when he takes on Lee Selby on Saturday, May 19, in what is set to be one of the biggest sporting events of the summer.

He famously walks into his fights to Kaiser Chiefs most famous tune ‘I Predict a Riot’, but this time the Leeds fighter will be entering to the backdrop of a live performance for the much-loved track.

Other Kaiser Chiefs hits including ‘Never Miss a Beat’, ‘Modern Way’ and ‘Ruby’ and the band are one of the most successful to come out of the city of Leeds.
