Today around 50,000 fans have descended on Leicester to watch Kasabian’s sold out Victoria Park show today.
Coinciding with the band’s tenth anniversary, Kasabian’s homecoming gig will stay true to their latest album, 48:13, and see the boys perform early hits and new tracks while offering fans never before seen visuals.
It has been a decade since the release of their first album, self-titled Kasabian, and the homecoming concert roughly marks this ten year anniversary. Tom forms one quarter of the rock band, along with guitarist and backing vocalist Sergio Pizzorno, drummer Ian Mathews, and bassist Chris Edwards. Hailing from Leicester, and still currently living in the city, Mr Meighan was clearly jubilant about performing in front of his home crowd: “I think it’s exciting for the city because we come from here. We’ve not done anything big before in Leicester, but we’ve always wanted to do this.”
He added, “We’ve got a good fan base who have grown up with us. I think we are different from other bands because we are true. We’re honest and we don’t try too hard.”
