A very sad event has happened which has left fans sharing their disappointment and concern at Kaiser Chiefs frontman Ricky Wilson “slurring”, “stumbling” and “forgetting lyrics” at the band’s London show this weekend.
We would see Kaiser Chiefs perform at London’s O2 Arena on Saturday night (November 5), with a number of fans taking to social media during and after the show to share their reactions to Wilson’s performance.
One Twitter user would say: “At the o2 watching Kaiser Chiefs and Ricky is clearly very drunk and acting pretty odd, it’s actually quite concerning tbh.”
Another added: “Real talk: is Ricky Wilson okay??? Either he was completely off his nut on something throughout tonight’s Kaiser Chiefs show, or he’s got some really worrying behaviour going on. It was kind of uncomfortable to watch.”
What is even more worse is that fans started to ask for refunds as someone called it “such a shocking performance”, adding that they were “truly disappointed”. They added, “as I say to my children I’m not angry just disappointed.”
A number of fans also showed concern for the frontman, sending him “good vibes” and well wishes after what appeared to be a concerning performance.
The people over at NME have reached out for comment, but as of right now, there has been no official word.
Last week, Kaiser Chiefs shared their new single ‘How 2 Dance’ and spoke to NME about their forthcoming new album, stating: “I think I have December to finish the record,” Wilson said. “I guess we’ll have something early next year. But it’s so different than it used to be. It’s amazing: we don’t have any homework to hand in – it’s not like school. There’s no time limit, and I can do what I want. But I reckon I’d like to have a record out next year.
Wilson closed: “We’re gonna make it easy on ourselves. It will be out when it’s brilliant. Like, label dates don’t matter any more. It’s really weird, because we’ve never really signed a [record] deal since our first deal: we just keep making records and someone puts them out. It’s just really cool to be a musician right now, because no-one’s telling you what to do. It’s fantastic: long may it last. No-one’s stopping us.”
