Kasabian - Kasabian close Glastonbury festival

Kasabian closed Glastonbury festival with a bang on Sunday night (29.06.14).

The rockers brought the festival held at Worthy Farm in Somerset, South West England, to an epic crescendo with a fast-paced set bursting with classic tunes including 'Underdog', 'Fire' and 'Empire'.

The Leicester band began with 'Bumblebee' from their new album '48:13', while a series of random words including 'Voucher', 'Canister' and 'Dhalsim' were displayed on a pink screen behind them.

Frontman Tom Meighan, clad in a white tuxedo and bow tie, addressed the crowd by shouting, ''Hello Glastonbury, how are you!''

The band launched into fan favourites like 'Shoot The Runner', which featured a sample of Kanye West's 'Black Skinhead' and 'Processed Beats', interspersed with new album songs including 'Stevie'.

At one point, guitarist Serge Pizzorno performed a bluesy cover of Gnarls Barkley's 'Crazy' with just a guitar and a trumpet, while Tom left the stage for a break.

The 50,000-strong crowd were treated to a surprise appearance from 'Mighty Boosh' joker Noel Fielding during 'Vlad The Impaler'.

Dressed in a turban with blood streaked across his face, Noel bounded across the stage in a cape as Tom chanted ''Bobby Womack see you on the other side'', a tribute to the legendary soul singer who passed away on Friday (27.06.14).

Kasabian finished their stellar set with a cover of Fatboy Slim's 'Praise You' and 'L.S.F'.

A visibly emotional Tom said: ''Ten years ago we opened The Other Stage - we'd been up all night of course. Seriously, thank you for this.''
