Treasure hunt for Kaiser Chiefs tickets

Friday, 21 May 2021

Music fans are being given the chance to get their hands on free tickets as part of a special treasure hunt held this weekend in honour of Yorkshire indie kings Kaiser Chiefs.

The Leeds band – who play a headline show at Scarborough Open Air Theatre on Sunday 8 August – released debut single Oh My God 17 years ago this very week.

To celebrate the anniversary of the barnstorming live favourite, the team at Scarborough OAT will – this Sunday (23 May) – hide 17 pairs of tickets for Kaiser Chiefs’ show at various locations around the resort’s Peasholm Park.

The treasure hunt will start at 12pm and fans will have until 4pm to find the tickets.

Scarborough OAT venue programmer Peter Taylor said:

"We absolutely love Kaiser Chiefs and Oh My God remains as brilliant and as fresh today as when it was released in 2004.

"We thought it would be great to mark the anniversary of the band’s debut single by holding a special ticket treasure hunt. We will hide 17 pairs of tickets around beautiful Peasholm Park on Sunday. All fans need to do is find them!

"On top of that, within the envelopes containing the tickets, will be details of how fans can get to the front on the night of the show – so get hunting and good luck!"

Kaiser Chiefs are undoubtedly one of the most treasured bands of their generation.

Seventeen years into an incredible career, they have truly made their mark with such anthemic hits I Predict A Riot, Everyday I Love You Less and Less, Ruby, Never Miss A Beat and Hole In My Soul and, of course, Oh My God.

Initially released as Kaiser Chiefs’ debut single on 17 May 2004, Oh My God reached number 66 on the UK Singles Chart before being re-released on 21 February 2005 – two weeks before the release of debut album Employment. This time the song peaked at number six, earning the band their first Top 10 hit.

Kaiser Chiefs’ Scarborough OAT show will be a much-requested return to the venue. The multi-award-winning band played a brilliant show at the UK’s largest open air theatre back in 2017 – and fans have been asking for them to return ever since.

Kaiser Chiefs join Stereophonics, Duran Duran, Westlife, Snow Patrol, Keane, Olly Murs, Anne-Marie among this summer’s headliners at Scarborough OAT this summer.
