Speaking previously to NME about the band’s upcoming hometown gig and Leceister City’s footballing success, Pizzorno said they had to “move Heaven and Earth” to make the show happen.

“We were all booked in, set to do it next year,” he said. “We’ve been buzzing off that plan, and after the gig we did in 2014 in Leicester’s Victoria Park, we were looking for the next step up. But as the season’s gone on, there’s a feeling around the city that’s really special and we thought we should move Heaven and Earth to move the gigs forward a year. It’s in the last two days that we’ve finally got the go ahead to do it. I think everyone in Leicester is in a great mood.”

Kasabian will play:

Bridlington Spa Centre (May 24)
Swindon Oasis Leisure Centre (26)
Leicester King Power Stadium (28, 29)
