Leicester’s home-town heroes Kasabian, one of the UK’s biggest bands, are set to return to the city by playing a massive headline show at Victoria Park on Saturday 21st June 2014.
Currently recording their fifth LP, the band will play the first ever show staged at Leicester’s Victoria Park bringing their hit-laden set list back to the place where it all began. It will be the first time the band has played in the UK since their headline slot at Queen Elizabeth Park this summer.
Guitarist and Songwriter Serge Pizzorno said: “We are hugely honoured to be playing in our home town at such an incredible setting right in the heart of the city. It’s a happening we’ve been planning for years. Summer solstice is coming; set the controls for the heart of the sun”.
They have gone from dance-rock outsiders to one of the biggest rock bands in the world, selling out shows around the globe. They have won many awards including a Brit, Q and NME awards and have also been nominated for a prestigious Mercury Award.
Aside from cementing their reputation as one of the planet’s best live acts, they have established themselves through four albums –three of which went straight in the UK charts at number 1 – as one of the best and most innovative British rock bands ever with a slew of memorable singles including ‘Club Foot’, ‘Empire’, and ‘Velociraptor’,
Now the city is ready to welcome them home again. Leicester City Mayor Peter Soulsby said: “Leicester is incredibly proud of Kasabian and we are delighted to host this homecoming concert to celebrate these local heroes. There can be no doubt that this will be one of the musical highlights anywhere in the country next summer.”
