Kasabian want to copy Oasis’ Heaton Park gigs

Leicester band reveal ambition after supporting Gallaghers

Kasabian‘s Serge Pizzorno has revealed he wants his band to one day play large hometown gigs in Leicester, after supporting Oasis at the three Manchester Heaton Park shows last week (June 4, 6 and 7).

Pizzorno and co played before the Manchester legends at all three of the shows, with the singer saying the experience had inspired the band to work towards playing similar headline shows of their own.

“It’d be amazing to do it in Leicester one day,” he told BBC Newsbeat. “That city would never have seen anything like it.”

Oasis had to abandon the Heaton Park stage at their first gig on Thursday due to a faulty generator.

They did, however, return to play a full set, then performed unhindered gigs on Saturday and Sunday.
