Serge Pizzorno of Kasabian has said the band will definitely be playing new material when they play their homecoming gig in Leicester next year

As revealed earlier this week, Kasabian will play a 35,000 capacity gig in June 2014 to mark 10 years since they released their debut album, 'Kasabian', in 2004. The band will headline Victoria Park in the city on June 21.

Posting on the band's official website, Pizzorno says the gig is as much about the future as it is about the band's past. "We'll have a new record, so we'll be playing tunes from that and we'll be playing the massive anthems that we have. It will just be a huge celebration, you know. The important thing will be, what’s going to happen next. It won’t be like, 'This is great, let’s just reminisce', it will be like, 'Fuck, this is just half the story, what’s going to happen next.'"

Kasabian are currently working on their new album, the follow up to 2011's 'Velociraptor!'.

Meanwhile, the band were early favourites to headline Glastonbury 2014, with Oasis an outside bet according to bookmakers. A spokesperson for bookmakers William Hill announced that both Kasabian, who last played the festival in 2009, and Foo Fighters, last seen at Glastonbury in 1998, have odds of 6/1 to top the bill in 2014.

Tickets for the Leicester gig are priced at £39.50 and go on sale on Friday(November 29) at 9am. Local residents' tickets for people with postcodes commencing LE1 7 and LE2 1 are available on a first come, first served basis until December 6.
