This event has been and gone.
Kasabian have announced a special gig as part of Forest Live, the summer concert series organised by the Forestry Commission.
Kasabian released their eponymous debut in 2004 and five No 1 albums have followed: ‘Empire’, ‘West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum’, ‘Velociraptor’, ‘48:13’ and ‘For Crying Out Loud’. Together with a run of popular singles releases such as ‘L.S.F’, ‘Club Foot’, ‘Shoot The Runner’, ‘Fire’, ‘Days Are Forgotten’, ‘eez-eh’ and more recently ‘You’re In Love With A Psycho’ and ‘God Bless This Acid House’, this success has established Kasabian’s status as one of the biggest bands in the country.
Famed for their energetic and hedonistic live performances guaranteeing a setlist of earth-shaking rock anthems, a fervent fanbase has ensured countless sold-out arena tours and the band being a most sought-after festival headliner including Glastonbury, V Festival, T in the Park, Reading/Leeds with the band having just been announced as headlining The Isle of Wight Festival in 2018. Music industry accolades include a Brit, seven NME awards and four Q Awards.
A glorious synth-tinged melting pot of indie rock that will caress the eardrums. Formed in Leicester while still at school, they took their name from Linda Kasabian, one of the members of the Charles Manson cult. Their electronica-indie rock fusion akin to Primal Scream combined with the rough vocal style and unrepentant Mancunian swagger of Oasis has firmly established them as more than just a flash in the pan and injected a large dose of energy back into the Brit-rock scene.
