The Kaiser Chiefs are playing in Albert Square today
I predict a riot
The Kaiser Chiefs are headlining the Olympic Parade event taking place this afternoon, and will be performing in Albert Square. They will replace Olly Murs, who has had to drop out due to unforeseen circumstances.
The Olympic and Paralympic medal parade, which begins at 4:30pm, ends at Albert Square at half past five. There will be screenings of the parade throughout the city centre.
Sue Murphy, who is deputy leader of the council, said “It’s fantastic news and all credit to The Kaiser Chiefs for stepping into the breach at such short notice. We’re sure they’ll put on a golden performance.”
Fans of the Kaiser Chiefs have been advised to arrive at Albert Square early to avoid disappointment.
