Kasabian close Sunday night at Glastonbury 2014
29 June 2014, 23:41
Ten years after they opened Glastonbury with an 11am performance at The Other Stage, the boys from Leicester finally headlined the festival.
Dressed in a white tuxedo, singer Tom Meighan told the crowd at the Pyramid Stage: "Ten years ago, we opened Glastonbury, I was 23 years old. I'd been up all night (of course). Thank you for this. So much respect."
Much of the crowd were wearing cardboard "skull" masks that reflected guitarist Serge Pizzorno's skeleton outfit.
Kicking off with the new single Bumblebeee, a track from their fifth album 48:13, the band made their way through ten year's worth of hits, including a pounding Shoot The Runner, a rousing Underdog and a storming take on the hit of the summer, Eez-Eh.
The set also included covers of Gnarls Barkley's Crazy and Fatboy Slim's Praise You. Plus, the band were joined on stage by Noel Fielding for Vlad The Impaler.
The show came a week after the band's triumphant homecoming gig at Leicester's Victoria Park and climaxed with LSF (Lost Souls Forever), from Kasabian's debut album.
