The group, who all hail from Leicester, plan to mark the city's football club's memorable season with a huge gig at the end of May.
Leicester City fans Kasabian have announced plans for a huge, one-off gig at the club’s stadium next month, in celebration of the team’s extraordinary season.
The Midlands football club, known as the Foxes, stand on the brink of one of the most astonishing and unlikely achievements in sporting history, as the 5,000-1 rank outsiders are just one victory away from winning the English Premier League.
However, win or lose – and it seems increasingly likely that it will be a win – the indie rock group, who hail from the city, will perform in front of 30,000 fans at the club’s King Power Stadium on May 28th. Tickets go on sale this Saturday (April 30th).
The 'Rather Be' stars were recently called out by Kasabian's Serge Pizzorno as part of a reaction to their BRIT Awards snub.
Serge Pizzorno, guitarist and chief songwriter of the Leicester quartet, told The Independent last week that he was displeased at the group’s total lack of recognition at the upcoming Brit Awards. Despite scoring a fourth UK Number 1 album last year with 48:13, Kasabian received no nominations at all, which Pizzorno described as a “conspiracy” to “shut rock ‘n’ roll out.”

But rather than being an expression of the group's true feeling, Kasabian have now claimed the backdrop was simply a ‘production error’ and not anything to do with the band themselves.
