Band celebrate hometown team winning the Premier League against all odds
Kasabian performed a surprise set at a party held yesterday in honour of Leicester City’s historic title win.
After winning the Premier League in one of the greatest against-the-odds victories in sporting history, Leicester City celebrated in the sunshine with an open-top-bus parade and a victory concert in front of an estimated 240,000 people in the city’s Victoria Park on Monday (May 16).
Leicester were crowned Premier League champions for the first time in the club’s history earlier this month (May 2), having been handed odds of 5000-1 to do so at the start of the season.
After the team raised the trophy on the stage, City fans Kasabian appeared for a short surprise set, playing ‘Underdog’, ‘Eez-Eh’, ‘L.S.F.’ and ‘Fire’. Watch footage below.
Guitarist Serge Pizzorno wasn’t surprised by the massive turn-out, and said that City’s victory had transformed his home city. “It’s unbelievable what it’s done for the town,” he said. “It’s a proper underdog town, but it’s having a little moment. A lot of the big cities get used to this kind of thing, but now there’s a proper light being shone on Leicester.”
Kasabian will keep the victory party going with their own shows at Leicester City’s King Power Stadium on May 28 and 29.
