With hits such as 'Ruby', 'Oh My God' and 'I Predict A Riot' in their repertoire, Kaiser Chiefs - fronted by former The Voice coach Ricky Wilson - will be supported by indie favourites The Vaccines and South Yorkshire sensations The Sherlocks.

Leeds United say the show will be 'the first of several exciting events to celebrate 100 years of the club' in 2019.

Executive Director Paul Bell said: “We are really excited to be bringing the Kaiser Chiefs back to Elland Road as a part of our centenary celebrations and re-establishing Elland Road as a recognised major concert venue.

What are the biggest musical events in Leeds' history? Take a look at here.

"The last time the Kaisers played Elland Road it was an incredible show and this time around with the strong support bill of The Vaccines and The Sherlocks this should be another amazing night at Elland Road.

"We are hoping to confirm further events in the coming weeks to help us celebrate 100 years of Leeds United in style.“

Speaking about being the first centenary show announced, Kaiser Chief’s bassist and LUFC season ticket holder Simon Rix said: “Last time we played Elland Road it was a big celebration. A great gig for the city and promotion for the club.

"Well, nearly 10 years later it’s time for another go.

"We’re really looking forward being part of the Leeds United centenary celebrations.

Listen back to Rickey Wilson's World Cup anthem.

"And the promotion party of course."
