LEICESTER rockers Kasabian will return to Limerick for a headline show in King John’s Castle on Wednesday June 14. Tickets on sale this Friday December 9 at 9.30am at www.dolans.ie / www.ticketmaster.ie
With tracks such as ‘Fire’, ‘Underdog’, ‘LSAF’ and ‘You’re In Love With A Psycho’, Kasabian have soundtracked the lives of a generation of music fans across the world. With their new album The Alchemist’s Euphoria, the band are ready to start a new chapter and kickstart a whole new Kasabian era.
Speaking at today’s announcement Mick Dolan said: “Another big act announced for King Johns Castle, Kasabian are a phenomenal live band, performing twice in Dolans warehouse and The Big Top, it’s great to finally get them back”
The band released their eponymous debut in 2004, Kasabian expanded that sound on later albums, but the band’s foundation remained rooted in fragmented dance textures and boisterous rock & roll. The approach was well-received; the group went to the top of the U.K. album chart for the first time with 2006’s Empire, and their sixth album, For Crying Out Loud, became their fifth straight number one when it arrived in 2017.
Kasabian took the music press by storm in the early 2000’s by mixing traces of the Stone Roses, Happy Mondays, and Primal Scream with Oasis-sized confidence and DJ Shadow-influenced electronics. Named after Linda Kasabian, Charles Manson’s getaway driver-turned-state witness.
