Indie-rockers Kasabian are set to play a special ‘warm-up’ show at Plymouth Pavilions this spring.
Kasabian‘s warm-up show at Plymouth Pavilions will be in preparation for their Teenage Cancer Trust concert on March 22.
With a line-up curated by Noel Gallagher, Kasabian are welcomed back to London’s Royal Albert Hall for a Teenage Cancer Trust concert following outstanding headlining shows in 2007 and 2009.
Speaking about performing their previous TCC gigs, lead singer Tom Meighan said: “It’s great we can continue to support Teenage Cancer Trust and help them make a difference.
“We were inspired after meeting some of the teenagers with cancer at our gigs last year and it really made us want to do more for the charity.”
Kasabian have been compared with the likes of Primal Scream, with their similar electronica-indie rock fusion and Oasis, with whom they share their confidence, vision, swagger and rough vocal style.
Their music has won them several awards and recognition in the media, including a Brit Award in 2010 for Best British Group, and their live performances are legendary.
Their eponymous first album was released in 2004 and received average reviews. However, tracks such as Cutt Off and LSF (Lost Souls Forever) reached the UK Top 10, and with two more Top 20 hits and the album peaking at number four in the UK Album Chart, they defied the critics.
The second album, Empire, was released in 2006. The first single from the album, also titled Empire, was widely regarded as a musical success, with its change of beat and its catchy chorus. This was then followed by the release of the singles Shoot the Runner and Me Plus One.
The third album, West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum, was released in 2009. The hit single off the album Fire reached number three in the Official UK Singles Chart, making it the band’s highest charting single to date.
Switchblade Smiles, the first track released from Kasabian’s fourth album, Velociraptor!, was debuted during Zane Lowe’s show on BBC Radio 1 on June 7, 2011.
The album was released in September of that year and became Kasabian’s third consecutive number one album in the UK.
Kasabian hit Plymouth Pavilions on March 20, 2013. Tickets go on sale at 9am on February 15, 2013.
