Kasabian have been inspired by Oasis' successful hometown concerts.

Guitarist Serge Pizzorno has revealed he wants to copy the 'Wonderwall' hitmakers success by one day playing a string of large shows in Leicester, where they bandmates grew up.

Kasabian, also consisting of Tom Meighan, Chris Edwards, Ian Matthews and Jay Mehler, supported Oasis at their three sell-out shows at Manchester's Heaton Park last week, on June 4, 6 and 7.

Serge says the rockers are now inspired to aim for similar headline shows of their own.

He told BBC Newsbeat: "It'd be amazing to do it in Leicester one day. That city would never have seen anything like it."

The guitarist also revealed the two bands bonded before the shows by enjoying a country ride in Liam's helicopter.

Serge added: "We had some dinner by a lake - a good chat, a good catch up, it was great.

"Seeing England from a helicopter is kind of strange as well, you get a real of sense of where you're from and the nation."

Oasis were forced to abandon their set at Heaton Park during their first gig on Thursday (04.06.09) due to a faulty electricity generator, however, Saturday and Sunday's went without a hitch.
