Heineken Big Top

One of the UK’s biggest bands, Kaiser Chiefs will bring their anthemic brand of indie rock to the Heineken Big Top as part of Galway International Arts Festival 2020. Audiences can look forward to all their favourite tunes from the band’s nearly two-decade career, as well as newer tracks from 2019 release Duck.
Kaiser Chiefs headline the Heineken Big Top on Thursday 23 July. Tickets, priced at €49.50, will be available for purchase at from Friday 6 March at 10am.
Perhaps best known for smash hits like “I Predict A Riot” and the chart-topping “Ruby,” Kaiser Chiefs draw massive crowds for sold-out shows across the world. The prolific band has released seven original studio albums: Employment (2005), Yours Truly, Angry Mob (2007), Off with Their Heads (2008), The Future Is Medieval (2011), Education, Education, Education & War (2014), Stay Together (2016), and Duck (2019). They’ve also released one EP: Lap of Honour (2005) and one compilation album: Souvenir: The Singles 2004–2012 (2012).
Their debut album Employment won the band three Brit Awards, including for Best British Group, an NME award for Best Album, and was shortlisted for the Mercury Prize. The first single released from the album was “Oh My God” in 2004, which went on to be covered by Mark Ronson and Lily Allen. “I Predict a Riot”, from the same album, was ranked number thirty-six on the NME “Greatest Indie Anthems Ever” countdown.
Over the years, Kaiser Chiefs have supported legendary acts including U2, Green Day, and Foo Fighters. Memorably, they were featured in the closing ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics, playing “Pinball Wizard” by The Who.
