Speaking to NME about headlining Reading & Leeds Festival for a second time, Kasabian said it was ‘like a dream’.
“It was everything and more of what you expect,” guitarist Serge Pizzorno told NME. “It was a massive crowd. You can always tell by the burger vans – if it stretches out to there then it’s like ‘shit, that was big’. It was huge. The encore was like a dream, it was insane. Time just stood still and I was gone.”
“The set was just like nuclear warfare which was great. If you’ve been there all day, then it’s not the time to drop a nice little acoustic number in there. It was like ‘let’s just go full throttle’ – and it worked. We did a nice little shout out to Nirvana because it was 25 years since they played, so we did ‘All Apologies’. I felt it on stage. It was a beautiful moment.”
Rumoured acts for Reading & Leeds 2018 include Wolf Alice, Queens Of The Stone Age and My Chemical Romance.
