Kasabian have revealed that the stage set for their UK arena tour will resemble a giant orange.

The band will begin a 13-date UK arena tour on November 28 at Brighton Centre and have said that they have commissioned a specially designed set which will glow brighter or fainter depending on how noisy the crowd are.

Speaking to the Daily Star about the set, frontman Tom Meighan said: "Serge and Aitor Throup, who did our album artwork, and a guy called Nick who's a fucking genius at lighting, came up with it. It's going to look great. The idea that the stage will react to fans will be cool. It's never been done."

Meighan also spoke about the band's desire to get back "in the stride of playing live again" and described making new album 'Velociraptor!' as "easy".

He added: "It's pretty exciting. We want to get in the stride of playing live again. Making the album was easy. Now it's two years of touring."

Kasabian announced earlier this week that they will headline London's O2 Arena on New Year's Eve, with support from Chase and Status and a DJ set from Zane Lowe.
