The show, which has promised to be a highlight of 2020, comes six years after Kasabian’s successful debut performance, at Victoria Park. Next year’s show will mark the band’s first outdoor UK show, since their huge headline set at the Isle of Wight festival, and their first UK show since their performance at Brixton Academy in 2018.
The band is made up of frontman Sege Pizzorno, singer Tom Meighan, bassist Chris Edwards, drummer Ian Matthews, and guitarist Tim Carter. Kasabian are currently working on new music and are “eager to return to Leicester next month.” The announcement comes after Kasabian’s frontman, Serge Pizzorno, under the moniker The S.L.P, released his self-titled solo album, to critical acclaim.
Kasabian are hugely successful, they have five UK number 1 albums to their name and have sold over 5.5 million albums worldwide. They’ve won a Brit Award, seven NME awards, and four Q Awards. They have also performed at some of the UK’s largest festivals including headline performances at Glastonbury Festival, V Festival, T in the Park, Reading and Leeds Festival and numerous festivals worldwide.
