Band play first UK festival headline slot in Scotland
Kasabian overcame sound problems as they headlined the final night (July 11) of the 2010 T In The Park festival.
The Leicester band played on the Main Stage, though as they began their set with ‘Fast Fuse’ they were hit sound problems which limited their volume.
With the sound much quieter than bands playing on the same stage earlier in the day, the band followed with ‘Shoot The Runner’ and ‘Underdog’ before the sound issues were sorted and they started playing at normal levels.
“Jesus fucking Christ, hello!” exclaimed singer Tom Meighan, wearing all black in contrast with guitarist Serge Pizzorno‘s white suit. Later, after ‘Empire’, he announced: “T In The Park you are fucking empire! I love you, you fuckers!”
The frontman also dedicated ‘The Stuntman’ to Biffy Clyro, who played on the Main Stage earlier on today.
Playing songs from all their three albums throughout the set, they ended with an encore featuring ‘Fire’, during which many fans let off flares in the crowd, before moving on to ‘Vlad The Impaler’ and set closer ‘LSF’ before a bagpipe and firework display closed T In The Park 2010.
