The 'Days Are Forgotten' hitmakers dedicated their track 'Goodbye Kiss' to the late showbiz legend as they performed at the Virgin Media-sponsored festival in Chelmsford last night (22.08.15).
However, the tribute was met with mixed reactions from their fans.
One wrote on Twitter: ''Kasabian dedicating Goodbye Kiss to the late Cilla Black was a highlight (sic)''
Whilst another added: ''Still unsure how I feel about Kasabian dedicating a song to Cilla Black last night (sic)''
During their energetic set, the rock band urged the crowd to ''make some f***ing noise'' as they opened with 'Bumblebee' before reeling off popular tracks including 'Shoot The Runner', 'Underdog' and 'eez-eh'.
Tom Meighan was clearly pleased with the reaction the band got, telling the revellers: ''Thank you Chelmsford, my lovely darlings.''
And as a final 'thank you' to the supporters, the band jumped off the stage and interacted with the lucky fans who had made it to the front row.
One fan who watched the set wrote: ''#kasabian- you were amazing last night! #VFestival #VHylands #HylandsParkOnFire (sic)''
Whilst another shared: ''@KasabianHQ rocking my world @vfestival #VFestival2015 #Kasabian (sic)''
