Kasabian Reveal Live Film

Indie | Thursday 31st May 2012 | Osh

Indie-heavyweights Kasabian have unveiled their Live at the O2 film, which was screened for one night only last night.

The Leicester band have enjoyed great success with hits like Fire’, ‘Shoot the Runner and Club Foot’ and have now produced this live film. The film’s footage was shot at the band’s 19-track show at the 20,000 capacity O2 Arena in London on the 15th of December last year.

But if you weren’t there, don’t fret, because the film will be released on DVD on the 25th of June 2012. The DVD package will include the live film and a 13-track live album as well. It’ll also be available on Blu-Ray with a documentary about the band’s tour in full.

The fivesome, who released the movie with Altlive Media and Eagle Rock Entertainment, certainly aren’t taking a break from writing music and touring, however. Reports state they’ve already started thinking about their next album, even though their latest record ‘Velociraptor!’ only came out last year! According to frontman Tom Meighan, Kasabian’s lead songwriter Serge Pizzorno is working hard on new material, but it’s unlikely that the band will release anything until 2013.

Speaking about ‘Kasabian Live!: Live at the O2’, Serge Pizzorno said, "You decide at the start of the tour when you're going shoot it and it's always a strange one because you don't have any idea how the gig's going to turn out. We were fucking really lucky, because it happened to be arguably the best show of the whole tour which was really nice.” He continued, “The energy was phenomenal. Especially in London as well, which is usually a bit of a tougher crowd. It was an incredible, incredible night."
