Kasabian Love Reading Festival


Kasabian Serge Pizzorno

Kasabian's Serge Pizzorno says playing Reading Festival was ''one of the best days ever''.

The 36-year-old guitarist and his band mates - Tom Meighan, Chris Edwards and Ian Matthews - will be headlining the festival at Richmond Park on August 25.

Speaking on Absolute Radio, he said: ''We went to Reading as kids, that yellow poster I got and framed it because it meant so much. It's a big old gig and we attacked it and it was amazing, weren't it? It was one of the best days ever.''

Kasabian's Album For Cying Out Loud Inspired By Motown


Kasabian Tom Meighan Serge Pizzorno

Kasabian's new album was inspired by Motown.

The English rock band, which is comprised of Tom Meighan, Serge Pizzorno, Chris Edwards, and Ian Matthews have admitted their new LP titled 'For Crying Out Loud', which is set to be released next month, was influenced by the iconic seventies era when guitarists had ''strong melodies and great riffs''.

The bands 36-year-old guitarist told the Evening Standard Online: ''On a grand scale we want to save guitar music from hell and be the saviours of rock and roll. In reality, I wanted to try and make an album full of really good, well-crafted songs.

Kasabian Announce Plans For Huge Celebration Gig At Leicester City's Stadium


Kasabian Tom Meighan Serge Pizzorno

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).

Archaeological Discovery Will Not Prevent 'T In The Park' Go-Ahead


T In The Park Kasabian The Libertines Noel Gallagher

The recent archaeological discovery at the new site of the T In The Park festival will not prevent the weekend-long event from going ahead, experts have confirmed.

Contractors preparing the site near Strathallan Castle came across what archaeological experts believe to be a 3,000 year old roundhouse, and works were immediately put on hold while the structure was examined.

The festival’s organisers, DF Concerts, had feared that the discovery would force them to delay or perhaps cancel this year’s festival, due to be held in July. Archaeological discoveries frequently hold back construction projects all over the world.

Kasabian Receive Eight NME Awards Nominations


Kasabian Royal Blood Jamie T NME

As if we didn’t know it already, it’s been a very good year for Kasabian. In addition to a chart-topping album and a headline performance at Glastonbury, the group have been nominated for an impressive eight NME Awards.

The Leicester-based band have become arguably the biggest alternative rock band in Britain over the last decade, and this status is reflected by this massive haul of nominations. The band are in the running for: Best Band; Best Live Band; Best Track and Dance Floor Filler (both for lead single ‘Eez-Eh’); Best Music Film (Kasabian: Summer Solstice); ‘Music Moment of the Year’ (for their Glastonbury performance); Best Fan Community and, perhaps most importantly, Best Album for their fifth record 48:13 which was released back in June.

Kasabian Frontman Tom Meighan Ran Over His Own Father. True Story.


Kasabian Tom Meighan Serge Pizzorno

Tom Meighan, the frontman of Glastonbury headliners Kasabian, has spoke of knocking down his own father with a car in a bizarre accident in a Leicester car park.

According to The Sun, the 33-year-old – who does not drive – had to take his father Tom Sr to hospital after the freak accident. “It was a bizarre accident and Tom feels really bad about it”, said an insider. "He was in a car park with his dad when it happened and was asked to release the handbrake to let the car forward slightly. By mistake, he put the foot on the accelerator and went into his father."

Tom Meighan Kasabian Metallica

Tom Meighan, lead singer of rock band Kasabian, has offered his two cents regarding the fuss that's been surrounding Metallica headlining at Glastonbury Festival. There has been a heated debate over whether the heavy metal band are the right choice to headline the festival.

Kasabian Metallica Glastonbury Kasabian's Tom Meighan has been discussing the decision for heavy metal band Metallica to headline Glastonbury

Meighan is fully for Metallica headlining the festival and he explained why: “They’re going to be different but who do you f***ing want on stage, The Beach Boys?” He added: “I love Metallica. Everyone’s complaining but [Metallica] can take it anywhere…They’ve been around the block. People will be surprised…They’re a heavy metal band so everyone’s going to panic, but Metallica are great. They’ll be good. They’ll be fantastic, trust me.”

Noah still

Nice Work, 'Noah': Darren Aronofsky's latest epic, Noah, was released last weekend and managed to triumph at its debut box office with $44 million, despite all the negative publicity regarding religious condemnation and middling reviews. Starring Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly and Emma Watson, Noah is based on the well-known Genesis tale but is given a pump of testosterone with the Black Swan director's dramatic CGI marvel. Check out the trailer.

Empire Film Awards: Emma Thompson and James McAvoy were the big winners at this year's Empire Film Awards, taking home trophies in their respective acting categories for Saving Mr. Banks and Filth. Space thriller Gravity and the fantasy sequel The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug were the evening's most-awarded movies with Simon Pegg, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sally Hawkins, Tom Cruise, Hugh Jackman, Steve Coogan and Margot Robbie also honoured for a smashing year in film. Find the full list of winners here.

Bruce Serenades His Mother At Hard Rock Calling Festival: What A Mummy's Boy!


Bruce Springsteen Kasabian Hard Rock Calling

In a Streisand-style family affair, US rocker Bruce Springsteen has introduced crowds of fans to family members whilst on stage. During his Sunday headline slot at last weekend's Hard Rock Calling festival, Springsteen invited his mother Adele, 87, on to the stage for a performance of 'Dancing in the Dark.' The pair slow-waltzed together before his younger sister Pam also joined them on stage with a guitar ready to strum out the song's crescendo.

Bruce Springsteen
"All Together Now: 'It's fun to stay at the..."

The Hard Rock Calling crowds, who had already rocked out to shows from The Jam, Kasabian, The Black Crowes and Alabama Shakes, were treated by the rock icon to 1984's Born In The USA played in its entirety. According to Digital Spy, 63 year-old Springsteen incorporated request banners from the crowd into his setlist, adding in 'Johnny 99' and 'Jungleland' to the 3 hour set that was received rapturously in a performance described as "joyful," "celebratory," "funky" and a "stunning filibuster of a show" by The Telegraph.

Hard Rock Calling: Fans Answer In Their Thousands To See Springsteen & Kasabian


Kasabian Bruce Springsteen Hard Rock Calling Paul Weller Tom Meighan Alabama Shakes

In Somerset, Glastonbury was in full swing but further East a different festival drew its own thousands. Rock fans flocked to Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in East London's Stratford to attend Hard Rock Calling: a two day festival hosting massive names in rock 'n' roll. Held in a pop-up venue at the site of the London 2012 Olympic Games Basketball venue, the festival welcomed Leicester's Kasabian, USA performer Bruce Springsteen and special guests; mod rock band, The Jam.

Bruce Springsteen Brought Down The House.

Kasabian enjoyed a successful Saturday night headlining slot, helping to christen the venue for a festival that began in 2006, with trumpet and violin-playing women and a cover of The Beatles' 'She Loves You' performed by lead singer Tom Meighan without any instrumental accompaniment. Busy bees Alabama Shakes managed to fit both festivals into the same weekend, playing Glasto on Friday then Hard Rock Calling on Sunday. Springsteen AKA The Boss certainly didn't let anyone down, according to the East London Advertiser, with the 65 year-old playing his 80s album Born In The USA in its entirety, accompanied by his E Street Band and even serenading his mother with 'Dancing in the Dark' onstage in front of 40,000 fans.

Kasabian - Royal Albert Hall 22nd March 2013 Live Review 2013


Each year the Teenage Cancer Trust puts on a series of gigs, and each year the line-up is equally impressive. Needless to say, with Noel Gallagher, Damon Albarn, Primal Scream, Russell Brand and Kasabian on the bill, this year was no exception. I was there to see the mighty Kasabian take to the stage for the Friday night slot to raise money and the roof off the Albert Hall. 

Kasabian - Royal Albert Hall 22nd March 2013 Live Review

The band certainly know how to kick off a show with uninhibited panache; recent track Days Are Forgotten lead them in with ease, swiftly followed by fan-favourites Shoot the Runner and Velociraptor which had the eager crowd dancing and singing along to their deliciously poppy choruses. There are few singers who own the stage with such a nonchalant self-assured swagger as this Leicester quartet's Tom Meighan does and he lead the way accordingly as anarchic Reason Is Treason and the grinding electronic opening bars to I.D. reverberated through the historic venue. Last Night of the Proms this was not but there was certainly no-one complaining. 

The string accompaniment and a switch to guitarist Serge Pizzorno on vocal duties for Take Aim introduced a slightly slower pace in proceedings and this followed on in the nostalgic reminiscence of British Legion. However, the band's usual fervour was never far away and they soon launched into the crowd-pleasing Empire, which had an enraptured crowd back in chanting-along mode. A rather brilliant cover of Fatboy Slim's Praise You acted as the introduction to iconic track L.S.F. whilst a rousing and impassioned performance of Fire ended the night, causing delighted gig-goers to jump up and down as one in the balconies.

NME Nominations Leave Rolling Stones Happy: 'Ooh, Blimey! That's Very Nice!'' Says Jagger


Rolling Stones David Bowie Arctic Monkeys Kasabian One Direction

Perennial rock stars The Rolling Stones gave a rather un-rock 'n roll response to learning that they had been nominated for Best Live Band, Best Book, Music Moment of The Year and Best Music Film at the NME awards. 

"It's very nice to be nominated. When I first heard it was four things, I thought, 'Ooh, blimey! That's very nice!'' said frontman Mick Jagger. "And it's not a journalists-only thing, it's not a coterie of closely-knit people choosing," the icon added. "It's funny, because when we were rehearsing at Wembley arena last year, it was where we used to do the NME Pollwinners. We remembered, it was the first time we ever played 'Jumping Jack Flash', at one of those Pollwinners concerts!" continued Mick. David Bowie, who recently announced his surprise new album, will go up against old friends The Stones in the Music Moment Of the Year Category, as well as in in the Best Music Video and Hero of the Year categories.

Elsewhere, The Maccabees and Arctic Monkeys have three nominations each and will be up against Kasabian, The Vaccines, Biffy Clyro and The Cribs for the title of Best British Band; one of the most coveted awards. Bowie, Bradley Wiggins, Russian punk band Pussy Riot, US president Barack Obama and singer-songwriter Frank Ocean join Dave Grohl in the battle to be crowned Hero of the Year in the less musical category.

Kasabian's headline slot at V this weekend has taken something of a backseat with The Libertines impending reunion at Reading/Leeds the following weekend. Both booked in warm up shows in smaller than usual venues. Both sold out in minutes. Whilst The Libertines play the Forum next week, Kasabian returned to Brixton Academy last night, laying down the gauntlet for them and anyone else wishing to get in their way. Played under a flag of St. George hanging from the rafters, the statement to their contemporaries was there for all to see. 'We're the biggest band in Britain.' Be honest, no one really gives a shit about Radiohead any more.
