Kaiser Chiefs rock Grimsby Auditorium stage in riotous fashion
FROM their all-time classics, such as Ruby, to unveiling their brand new track On The Run – the indie rockers were experts at entertaining by unexpectedly running around the balcony at the Grimsby Auditorium.
With not hearing from the Kaiser Chiefs for a while, I was a little reserved, but excited at the same time.
As expected, there were the usual indie rocker fans, but unusually there were a lot of couples in the audience, maybe tickets were bought as Valentine's presents?
We were in the standing area, not feeling too squashed, waiting for the support act the Fixers – who are an Oxford pop band signed to Vertigo Records.

Jack Goldstein, lead vocals, had the look and presence as if he was born on stage, but I struggled to hear his vocals clearly – so I couldn't attempt to sing-a-long.
The lead singer got the audience going with clapping to the rhythm, and everyone was screaming (including myself) when he teased us asking if we were looking forward to the Kaiser Chiefs.
Being nicely warmed up by the support, we waited around half an hour for the main boys to come on stage ... at this point the crowd started closing in and I felt even smaller only being 5ft 2in. But I managed to get a spot peeking through people's heads.
Lights flashing, everyone screaming, they came on booming their all-time classic Everyday I Love You Less And Less this was certainly a way to open the show!
With his denim shirt and swinging hair (and microphone) Ricky Wilson, lead singer, owned the stage and got the crowd bopping up and down.
The background lighting was amazing – changing colours and flashing to the beat of the music, and the sound was intense with the biggest set of speakers I have ever seen!
Then, randomly, the lead singer, who was causally sitting down on a speaker, magically got the crowd singing Happy Birthday to hat-loving keyboardist Peanut (Nick Baines).
Bouncing around the stage with a crazy amount of energy, the Kaiser Chiefs sung my favourites from I Predict A Riot and Angry Mob to Na Na Na Na Naa. It got the whole crowd chanting and screaming.
My favourite (and most unusual part) was when the lead singer suddenly disappeared and landed on the balcony and was singing among the audience. Fans were in awe, shocked and amazed as he was singing while they were having their pictures taken with him.
The Kaiser Chiefs couldn't have put a better show on for us, with all-time classics and a treat with a new song that will no doubt be dominating radio playlists soon.
