Serge Pizzorno of Kasabian has said that the band's forthcoming headline appearance at Glastonbury will be "validation" for the band.

Kasabian will bring the Worthy Farm event to a close on the Sunday night. Speaking to BBC News, Pizzorno says that his band have an "advantage" when it comes to headlining big gigs and that fans should expect surprises.

"When we step out on that stage, with all we know and everything we've learned, we have an advantage," he says. "If you're not expecting much, wait until you see what's about to happen to you."

Pizzorno also discusses a gig the band will play prior to Glastonbury, when they return to their home town of Leicester to play a huge open air show at Victoria Park in the city on June 19. "The reason we chose that location is that it's the centre of the town," Pizzorno says. "It's not on the outskirts in a farm, or anything. The train station is two minutes' walk, and it sits on the top of a hill where you can pretty much see all of Leicester. It's an unbelievable venue."

"The audience will see people from just down the road who created all this from nothing," Pizzorno says. "That's why that gig is so important, for our city to realise that anything is possible. To go onstage and celebrate 10 years of our band, with our best record yet, is great. That's going to be our moment, I think."

Kasabian are currently on track for fourth UK Number One album with '48:13', which was released on Monday (June 9).
