The Leicester rockers took to the stage at Glasgow's O2 Academy with Serge as frontman. Get the setlist and find out what went down.

Kasabian took to the stage for the first time last night (Wednesday 13 September) since the departure of Tom Meighan.

The Eez-eh rockers announced their plans to go on without their former frontman and after announcing live dates, speculation was rife about how they would perform on stage.

Finally fans' questions were answered, as the band took to the stage at Glasgow's O2 Academy fronted by guitarist and songsmith Serge Pizzorno.

The band kicked-off their set with Club Foot, with Serge coming out fighting- donning a mohawk for his latest haircut.

Playing the likes of Ill Ray (The King), Underdog and You're In Love With a Psycho and Stevie, the band surprised fans with the likes of Ladies and Gentlemen (Roll The Dice) and Pinch Roller, which they hadn't performed live since 2009 and 2015 respectively.

After playing huge anthems such as Empire and Vlad the Impaler, the Serge and co. returned for an encore, which included Bless This Acid House, L.S F. (Lost Souls Forever) and Fire.
