The Derry Journal can exclusively reveal that world famous indie rock band, ‘Kasabian’, will perform in Derry next month.

The concert will take place on May 18 and it will be the band’s only gig in the North of Ireland.

The exclusive show will see the band take to the stage with a blizzard of modern rock anthems and a preview of the highly anticipated forth-coming album, with support soon to be announced.

One well placed source told DerryJournal.com that the Kasabian concert had the potential to be one of the biggest nights of music the city has ever seen.

“‘Kasabian’ are a massive band and it’s amazing that they have agreed to come and play at the Nerve Centre. I think it’s probably the biggest concert to ever take place there - tickets will be in high demand so if anyone wants to go to the gig they should contact the WeGotTickets.com and Ticketmaster outlets - tickets go on sale on April 4.”

After headline performances at Reading and Leeds, Radio 1’s Hackey Weekend and T In The Park, the Leicester heavyweights are known for their earth-shaking sets and will be sure to please music lovers with their energetic bass lines and tireless stage presence.

Having been strongly tipped as Glastonbury headliners, 2014 is geared up to be huge for the five-piece who will headline several major festivals throughout the UK and beyond, before releasing their as yet untitled new album later in the year.

Never short of swagger, Serge and Co started their chart-topping reign with the release of their debut containing the addictive singles Processed Beats, Club Foot and L.S.F. Four studio albums later, they show no sign of slowing down, with the last three offerings reaching number one on the UK album charts and delivering modern rock anthems ‘Fire’, ‘Underdog’ and ‘Days Are Forgotten’.

Heavily indebted to the likes of Primal Scream and Stone Roses, Kasabian have gone on to command a sound all of their own that regularly sees them headline festivals and pick up acclaim, including Q, Brit and NME Awards for Best Live Act and Best Group.
