THE Kaiser Chiefs will perform at Manchester’s Olympic and Paralympic parade later today.
The announcement came after pop star Olly Murs confirmed he had pulled out of the Olympic and Paralympic parade, which is taking place in Manchester this afternoon.

A statement was released earlier today by Manchester City Council, which states: “Due to unforeseen circumstances, Olly Murs will not be performing as part of the GB heroes Parade in Manchester this afternoon.”
Besides the statement from the Manchester City Council, there is no clear explanation as to why he is unable to perform tonight.
IMPORTANT: For those going to the Manchester Heroes Olympic Parade tonight we have been informed Olly Murs has sadly had to cancel.
