Kasabian‘s Serge Pizzorno has revealed that he will prepare for the band’s homecoming gig at Victoria Park in Leicester by staying at his parents’ house – and he says he will try to walk through the crowd unnoticed.
Pizzorno and his bandmates will play to 50,000 people in Victoria Park tomorrow night (June 21), just one week before they headline the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury.
Speaking to NME, Pizzorno elaborates on his pre-gig ritual, saying: “My mum and dad live round the corner, so I might just stay there the night before. Just get a little skeleton mask and walk straight through the crowd.”
On the importance of great bands requiring a big homecoming gig, he continues: “You need that one show. Of course that marks the end – the end of a beautiful chapter.”
“The dream was always Victoria Park because it’s right in the centre of Leicester. There’s something really special about this year. We’ve made our best record, it’s the 10th anniversary of the debut album and we’re headlining Glastonbury.”
Kasabian’s latest album ’48:13′ entered the Official Album Chart at Number One last weekend (June 15), giving the group their fourth Number One album. Kasabian will headline the Pyramid Stage on the Sunday night at this year’s Glastonbury Festival.
