"Euphoric celebration" planned

Leicester indie giants Kasabian have promised fans something special at their upcoming festival shows.

Kasabian rule the roost at summer events. The band's hard touring ethics have honed their live show to a stunning degree, with the Leicester group capable of drawing on some massive fan anthems.

Singles such as 'Empire' mix with lesser known tracks, with Kasabian's huge sound blasting across a field near you. Set to play just two festival slots this summer, the band are promising fans something special indeed.

Preparing to assault the stage at T In The Park and V Festival, Kasabian have something special up their sleeve. Speaking to BBC 6Music, Serge Pizzorno explained that "it's taken 6 years to get here, so it's going to be an amazing sort of euphoric celebration."

"A thank you to anyone who's seen us back in the day because I'm sure people who've got tickets probably came to the first shows and it's nice for them to see us get there, it's going to be monumental I think."

Returning last year with their new album 'West Rider Pauper Asylum' the band pushed themselves into the world of arenas. Set to dominate the summer, the upcoming festival appearances are bound to be massive parties.

However there is one draw back: Kasabian's headline slot at T In The Park clashes with the World Cup Final, which of course England could well be participating in.

"We'll probably miss it, I think we're playing T in the Park on the final so we might not get to see it, I would take that over the final, if anywhere can be better than the final it's playing there."

Meanwhile, Pizzorno has also been writing new material. "I've got some tunes and I thought I'd get them down, they sound sort of Jackson 5, yeah one tune imparticular."
