Some 20 years after they formed in Leeds, 15 years after they scored a Top 10 UK hit with I Predict a Riot and less than one year after their UK Top Three album, Duck, it seems Kaiser Chiefs have weathered various storms over the past two decades. They are not, then, a critics’ choice but rather a people’s music act, and one with at least 10 songs that can make a gig pass by with a hum and a whistle. – Tony Clayton Lea

Large bags, backpacks and suitcases aren’t allowed into the arena, and there are no cloakroom facilities. With all this in mind, best to pack light and just bring what you need.

Can I take photographs?
No cameras or recording devices will be allowed into the arena, but you can bring and use your smartphone for photos and videos.
