Kaiser Chiefs Sign Up For Electric Proms

by | 04 September 2007

Kaiser Chiefs have signed up to perform at this year's Electric Proms in London, the BBC has announced.

The group are one of 80 acts appearing at the five-day festival from October 24th to 28th.

They are set to perform with Grammy award-winner David Arnold, who will arrange and sing some of the band's biggest hits, at Camden's Roundhouse.

"Hopefully, under the umbrella of the Electric Proms, we can throw away the rule book of what you can or can't do with a rock band and a bunch of musicians that you may not expect to see on stage with them," Arnold said.

Producer Mark Ronson will perform reworked tracks from his album Version with the BBC concert orchestra, including guests Lily Allen, Terry Hall, Santo Gold, Candie Payne and Tim Burgess.

Other unique collaborations include singer Jamie Cullum and Japanese club jazz band Soil and Pimp Sessions.

Music films will also be shown during the festival, including Heima – a new film by Sigur Ros.

Festival director Lorna Clarke said the first few artists who have signed up for the Electric Proms have embraced the central challenge of the festival to "create new moments in music".

"I know that they will give our broadcast audiences across the country something truly special," she added.

Further artists are set to be announced on September 10th and tickets go on sale on September 12th.
