Kasabian premiered new music last night at the first of two homecoming shows in Leicester.

The band performed new song ‘Put Your Life On It’ for the first time at the King Power Stadium. Singer Tom Meighan dedicated the song to those that “should have been here” to see Leicester City win the Premier League title, before launching into the new track with the help of a choir.
