Cheltenham Racecourse has announced that Kaiser Chiefs will be performing in the venue’s Centaur on February 21 next year 2013.

Tickets will go on sale at 9am on Wednesday 29th August. The band, who have more than six million album sales, recently played live in the London 2012 Olympics closing ceremony, covering The Who’s classic ‘Pinball Wizard’.

The racecourse launched its ‘LIVE’ division in 2011 and has since hosted well-known faces including John Bishop, Micky Flanagan and Alexandra Burke.

Earlier this month the venue confirmed Irish stand-up comedian Dara Ó Briain will be performing live in the Centaur on Thursday, October 11.

The Centaur has a 2,250 seated auditorium with state-of-the-art lighting and sound capabilities, as well as 300 acres available for outside events and 10,000 free car parking spaces.
