Birmingham Arena Frontman Ricky Wilson is a very watchable fusion of indie rocker, Elvis impersonator and Blackpool compere who has the audience eating from his hands. I n , Kaiser Chiefs singer Ricky Wilson bought himself a house on the Cornish coast, preparing for retirement. Drummer Nick Hodgson — who had written all their hits — was leaving the band and their last album with him, The Future Is Medieval, was their lowest charting to date. In between, they have proved that they can write perfectly decent songs without Hodgson. Meanwhile, and perhaps more crucially, a stint as a judge on TV talent contest The Voice transformed the frontman from chubby, scruffy indie kid to sharply dressed, gym-toned, immaculately coiffured household name and mainstream entertainer. This is the Wilson who bounds on, all blow-dried barnet, thrown shapes and colour-coordinated double denim. With a hint of an American accent during opener People Know How to Love One Another — an anthem for Brexit Britain that carefully avoids splitting their market by taking sides — the Yorkshireman is a very watchable fusion of indie rocker, Elvis impersonator and Blackpool entertainment compere. Seven songs from Duck — a third of the setlist — are traditional but sharp pop constructions with hooks and catchy choruses that play safely but well in large arenas. The infectiously chugging Target Market is a slightly more oddball tale of attempted wooing using Powerpoint presentations.
