Kasabian will play a special one-off gig at the King Power in May to ‘celebrate’ Leicester City’s season
Leicester band Kasabian have announced a huge one-off gig at Leicester City’s King Power Stadium.
The gig will take place on Saturday 28 May, and has been arranged in order to celebrate Leicester City’s (likely – touch wood!) title-winning season.
The special show will be the first Kasabian gig on ‘home-turf’ since their triumphant Summer Solstice gig in Victoria Park in 2014.
There have been rumours that Kasabian would play a gig at the King Power since before that gig in Vicky Park, and now with Leicester City seemingly about to lift the Premier League title it seems the perfect time for what guitarist Serge Pizzorno describes as ‘the greatest party’ the city has ever seen:

Speaking to the Mercury today, Kasabian’s Serge Pizzorno said: “There’s such an energy in the city at the minute. In a way it feels like we’re almost centre of the universe. Everyone is watching.
“We’ve always wanted to play at the King Power and after this season… we had to do it.
“No matter how it goes, we’re going to need a place to all stand together and reflect on what’s happened, because it is just unbelievable. In the stadium, with us playing our music. There is no better way. We’re so proud.”
Tickets for the King Power gig will go on sale at 10am on Saturday 30 April and will cost £53.75.
