Kasabian To Play First King Power Stadium Concert!
- The group will play a special gig at the stadium in May to celebrate Leicester City’s phenomenal Premier League season
- The Foxes have secured qualification for the Champions League and lead the table with three games of the campaign remaining
- Tickets will go on sale from 30 April
Rock band Kasabian will play the first-ever concert at King Power Stadium next month in celebration of Leicester City’s remarkable season.
The special performance will take place on 28 May, with tickets available to buy from 30 April. The Leicester-based band’s hit ‘Fire’ has reverberated around the ground each time the Foxes have found the net this campaign but now City fans can hear it live as part of King Power Stadium’s maiden major music event.
With Leicester City’s season having already seen them secure a place in next season’s Champions League, it’s certainly been one to savour for supporters.
So with one of the biggest rock bands in the world now set to light up King Power Stadium, there can be few better ways to round off the season of a lifetime.
Leicester City Chief Executive Susan Whelan said:"Our first ever concert at King Power Stadium always had to be something special and there was only one band that would ever fit the bill. The Kasabian sound has been such a positive, joyous part of the Leicester City atmosphere that it felt wholly appropriate to make this happen.
"The boys have been fantastic supporters of Leicester City for many years and we are delighted to help them fulfil this long-term ambition, while helping to deliver a truly special event for the wonderful city of Leicester."
Kasabian star Serge Pizzorno added: "This has been an unbelievable year for the city and it seemed like the perfect thing to do this summer. We cannot wait to throw the city the greatest party they have ever seen.”
Kasabian lead singer and Season Ticket Holder Tom Meighan, along with lead songwriter Serge are lifelong Leicester City supporters, but this season they can also count Foxes boss Claudio Ranieri among their fans.
The Italian claimed that Kasabian’s ‘Fire’ track turned his players into ‘warriors’ during their 4-2 victory over Sunderland on the opening day of the season – a victory from which the team have never looked back!
Ranieri said at the time:“I think I know the Leicester fans very well. They are passionate supporters and I told my players ‘when you go on the pitch and you hear the song from Kasabian, that means they want warriors.’ I want to see them as warriors for the fans.
“Kasabian are a fantastic rock band from Leicester and I think the guitar man, Serge, is Italian. It’s good and I think they (the fans) love fighters. We are fighters.”
It will be the first time that King Power Stadium has hosted a music concert, while Kasabian haven’t played in their home town of Leicester since June 2014 – a memorable afternoon at a packed out Victoria Park.
