Kaiser Chiefs announce Forest Live gigs
Photograph by Danny North

THE amazing Kaiser Chiefs are the latest band to announce dates as part of Forest Live, where acts perform in spectacular woodland settings around the country as part of the summer concert series promoted by the Forestry Commission. Formed in Leeds in 2000, Kaiser Chiefs quickly produced a succession of classic album releases in:- 'Employment', 'Yours Truly, Angry Mob' and 'Off With Their Heads' establishing them as one of the leading bands of their generation. Fronted by the charismatic Ricky Wilson, their trademark indie rock sound delivered a string of anthemic hits such as:- 'Oh My God', 'I Predict A Riot', 'Everyday I Love You Less And Less', 'Ruby' and 'Never Miss A Beat'. This success has ensured a number of headline festival slots and sell out tours. As a follow up to 2014's No 1 album 'Education, Education, Education and War', the group are currently working on their sixth studio album. Ricky Wilson is currently appearing as a coach in the BBC TV series The Voice.  Forest Live is an independent programme organised by the Forestry Commission  to bring forests to new audiences. Income generated from ticket sales is spent on protecting, improving and expanding England's forests and woodlands and increasing their value to people and wildlife. Over Forest Live's 15 year history, money raised has contributed to a wide range of projects, from wildlife conservation to making improvements for visitors. With everything required for a great night out, including full catering and bar facilities, the gigs are renowned for their relaxed atmosphere. Commenting on the gigs, Ricky Wilson said:- "As a band we've always loved to play outdoors; we've done fields, parks, farms, rooftops, beaches and back gardens, but this will be the 1st time we've played in a forest. If you go down to the woods this Summer, you're sure of a big surprise. We're really looking forward to being part of Forest Live."
