Kaiser Chiefs are to play a giant homecoming show in Leeds next year.

The concert, which will also feature The Enemy and Kate Nash, will take place at Leeds United's Elland Road stadium on 24 May.

The band's lead singer Ricky Wilson told BBC Radio 1 that more big names would be added to the support line-up over the coming weeks.

Wilson added: "We are very excited about it, and it makes us feel very proud of ourselves."

'Doubly exciting'

"We haven't really done a big show in our home town for a while - since Leeds festival a couple of years ago - and that wasn't our ticket. This is our ticket, Elland Road, Leeds, and it's great," he said.

Wilson said it would be their biggest concert, apart from festival appearances, so far.

"The fact it is in our home town is doubly exciting. We are always getting moaned at for not doing enough shows in Leeds, but there are very few places we can play anymore.

"It will be great to play to Leeds people, where they can just get the bus... plus I know all the bars in town to go to."

Tickets for the show will go on sale on Friday for those on the Kaiser Chiefs' mailing list, and on general sale at 0900GMT on Saturday.
