Five years after their last sell-out gig, Kaiser Chiefs are returning to Metro Radio Arena early next year.

The busy Yorkshire band will take the Newcastle stage on February 5, 2015 but tickets go on sale on Friday at 9am.

The band, fronted by Ricky Wilson, opened Glastonbury this year and will join Foo Fighters and others on stage at the sell-out closing party of the Invictus Games (for wounded service personnel) in London on September 15.

A European tour then beckons in October and in December the band will again join Foo Fighters for a tour of South Africa.

Kaiser Chiefs released new album Education, Education, Education & War earlier this year and a single version of the track My Life, mixed by American musician and record producer Billy Bush, is due out on September 22.

Paul Tappenden, general manager of the Newcastle venue, said: “Kaiser Chiefs are back at the Metro Radio Arena for the third time.

“Having previously sold out the venue in 2007 and 2009, this concert is sure to be a hot ticket.”

Tickets will be on sale from the venue, online or via a ticket hotline: 0844 4936666.
