Kasabian have are set to play an epic homecoming gig this weekend (6th July).

The Leicester rockers - comprised of Serge Pizzorno, Chris Edwards, Ian Matthews and Tim Carter - will return to their hometown for a huge outdoor show at Victoria Park, Leicester.

Serge told Radio X that the original Summer Solstice, which took place in July 2014, was a life-changing moment for the musician, who was raised in Leicester.

"It was just that amazing feeling of inviting everyone from your town," Serge told Radio X's Johnny Vaughan. "People coming from literally all over the world."

He added: "No one really knew what to plan for, so from about 12 o’clock all the pubs round the area just run out of booze... The city centre was just alive. Like a World Cup win or something. There were people in the fountains. It was crazy."
