Kaiser Chiefs Added To Macca's Liverpool Event
"It should be a whole lot of fun," McCartney said on Thursday. "Final details of the concert have yet to be announced, so I don't want to give too much away. But this is a great start."
Culture Company chief executive Kris Donaldson said: "We're really excited, the Kaiser Chiefs are one of the hottest and biggest selling bands in the UK." According to a statement on McCartney's websites, "further names for the June 1 concert at Anfield are to be announced in the coming weeks, including a very special international superstar guest." There are rumors that Paul may perform with Ringo but nothing solid has been announced.
Here is the ticket info released on McCartney's website: And after finalising a review of the stadium capacity, the Liverpool Culture Company is putting just over 4,000 new tickets on sale to the general public. Tickets will be available via www.liverpool08.com from 12 noon today (May 8) on a first come, first served basis. Tickets are available across all price categories: £35, £55 and £75 (plus booking and transaction fees).
In addition, a special allocation of 500 tickets will be reserved for community groups, schools and charities based in Anfield and Breckfield who can apply to purchase one pair of £75 tickets each. Successful applicants will be allowed to auction or raffle the tickets to raise funds for their organisation (conditions apply – see below for details).
An initial 27,500 tickets for The Liverpool Sound were sold via a special ballot launched in September 2007. The new tickets mean that the total capacity for the concert – the last to be held at Liverpool FC's iconic Anfield ground before the club moves to nearby Stanley Park – is nearly 36,000.
For those who aren't lucky enough to get tickets, BBC2 will be televising highlights from the concert on the evening of the show. BBC Radio 2 will also be covering the event - further details will be announced nearer the date.
