Kasabian play first gig since Tom Meighan’s departure: see footage, setlist and more

Last night (October 13), Kasabian played their first gig since the departure of former vocalist Tom Meighan – see footage, reaction, photos and setlist from the Glasgow gig below.

Meighan parted ways with the band last year after he was convicted of assaulting his girlfriend, saying he was leaving the band in order to “concentrate all his energies on getting his life back on track,” before appearing Leicester Magistrates Court to face a charge of assault against his partner Vikki Ager. He pleaded guilty and was subsequently sentenced to 200 hours of unpaid work.

Back in May, Kasabian confirmed that they would continue as a band in Meighan’s absence, announcing an intimate run of UK tour dates. Those dates began last night the O2 Academy Glasgow, and saw Serge Pizzorno take up frontman duties for the first time.

See footage from the gig, which saw the band play a host of classics including ‘L.S.F.’, ‘Club Foot’ and ‘Underdog’, below.
