Leicester rockers Kasabian have announced a number of dates in the East Midlands as part of a new tour – but it will be without frontman Tom Meighan, who left last year.
The fate of the band was uncertain after the departure of their frontman, who was sentenced for assaulting his partner Vikki Ager in 2020.
Now, the remaining band members – made up of lead guitarist and chief songwriter Serge Pizzorno, bassist Chris Edwards and drummer Ian Matthews – have announced their plans to play intimate live dates in October and November this year.
The 15-date tour includes a hometown show at Leicester’s De Montfort Hall and also dates in Lincoln and Notts.
In a statement the band said: “We’re incredibly excited to announce these intimate shows. We love our band, our music and our fans too much to ever stop!
“We’ll be playing all the classic tunes plus something new for the mosh pit to bounce too. So come join us for the biggest party of 2021! See you there.”
Tickets go on general sale this Friday, (June 4) at 10.00am at www.livenation.co.uk/.
