Kaiser Chiefs meet Brad

On Friday night in New Orleans, Britain’s Kaiser Chiefs wrapped their series of dates supporting Green Day with a spectacular finale that included a stage invasion and a superstar sighting.

“Brad Pitt was there,” Kaiser’s drummer Nick Hodgson told Spinner Saturday morning. “It was totally cool. We met Brad Pitt.”

Hodgson explained he ran into the star as the actor came out for the show. “He had his kids with him,” he said, kindly declining our request to tell us which Brangelina spawn children (Pax & Maddox) were in attendance (although he noted they had headphones on). “[There were] a couple security and that, but he was just sat in the normal seats.”

Although the Kaiser Chiefs are big stars in the native England, headlining festivals and topping charts, Hodgson revealed his band couldn’t help but feel star struck over the leading man. “We had a photograph taken just like regular nerds,” he said, before revealing that act didn’t come without a little trouble. “We had the camera set to video so we had to call him back. He was cool. It’s not the first time [that’s happened].”
