The Kaiser Chiefs (The BIC, Bournemouth – 24/02/17) ★★★★☆

By: editor

The Kaiser Chiefs thundered into Bournemouth rocking the rafters and bringing the house down.

There was a small stage emulating a 1950’s scene including a neon flashing sign ‘tonite Kaiser Chiefs’ with black curtains wrapped around. You then heard frontman Ricky Wilson start to sing, the curtains erupted to reveal the boys much to the delight of the sell-out Bournemouth crowd which were certainly excited. The mini stage was surrounded by glittering tassels and large silver helium filled ‘K’’C’ balloons. All very glittery and girly (sorry boys). After ‘We Stay Together, Everything Is Average Nowadays, and Take My Temperature, the mini stage got pushed back and the real show began with smoke and confetti , singing hits Everyday I Love You Less and Less,  Ruffians on Parade, Little Shocks, Ruby, Never Miss a Beat, The Angry Mob,  I Predict a Riot (my favourite)were well received.

Ricky Wilson threw his mic down picked up a cordless one and disappeared off into the side crowd appearing on a platform in the light and sound desks, much to the delight of those standing at the back of the mosh pit, and for those in the seated area, it was a great idea.

The show just got better and better, with Ricky bouncing around like a spring onion, all too soon the encore was here with everyone wanting more, with much applause and shouting the boys came back on to sing the last few numbers Still Waiting, Ever Fallen in Love, Oh My God.

The only little bit of critique was that the frontman RickyWilson instead of using the whole stage he mostly stayed to the right of the stage or the middle. I give this concert 4 stars for this reason.
