Kasabian will close out the festival on Sunday night (June 29) on the Pyramid Stage
Kasabian‘s Serge Pizzorno has said that he has 18 slogan t-shirts to choose from for his band’s Glastonbury performance.
Pizzorno opted to wear a shirt which said “Les-Tah” in tribute to his hometown Leicester during the band’s huge gig at the city’s Victoria Park last weekend and he has now told Nick Grimshaw on the BBC Radio 1 breakfast show that he’ll be wearing a similar outfit for Kasabian’s headline slot on Sunday (June 29) night.
“I’m on this move at the moment, it’s very basic, I’ve got my skeleton jeans and then just a T-shirt and I’ve gone from a number to a word now,” he said. “I’ve got about 18 t-shirts with various words and whatever [I choose] on the day will fit.”
Speaking further about the gig, he commented: “Obviously the question has been asked a lot like, ‘You feeling the pressure?’ and stuff. Not really, it’s just like more total excitement. To close is such a huge honour and it’s party time isn’t it surely? You know, let’s not think about it too much and just go and have an incredible night. The excitement in the camp is unbelievable.”
Pizzorno also speaks about the band’s forthcoming headline gig in NME‘s Glastonbury preview issue, which is on sale now and available digitally, saying he thinks it’s ‘great’ that The Black Keys are playing before them on the Pyramid Stage.
Pizzorno commented: “I think it’s great that they’re going on before us. That’ll be great to get the crowd going. It’s a nice contrast between very traditional rock to what future rock’n’roll sounds like.”
