HAIL THE CHIEFS: Next week Burberry’s Regent Street, London, flagship store will host the first of its public music events, with the Kaiser Chiefs playing to a crowd that is expected to reach 1,000. Tickets to the event will be free and will be available on Burberry’s Web site from 12 p.m. on Wednesday. The brand has an established rapport with artists through Burberry Acoustic and has already hosted private gigs for Ren Harvieu and Jake Bugg, as well as talks.

On show night, the shop will be close at 6 p.m. and be transformed into a performance space for the show, which will start at 8 p.m. and take advantage of the auditorium-like space that was originally designed as a cinema.
