Kasabian stop rain as they close IOW Festival 2011

The blazing sky-bound rocket that is Kasabian have cemented themselves in the Isle of Wight history books with an explosive set to close the 2011 edition of the event.

The festival favourites and widely acknowledged Leicester lads, knocked out a whole host of their ear-shredding greats and new anthems like ‘LSF’, ‘Empire’, ‘Velociraptor!’  and ‘Shoot The Runner’, and at no point, letting the fans off their ride.

Tom Meighan was more then up for it and referred to the crowd as “Isle of Wight bitches” as guiratist Serge Pizzorno and Co. dazzled in their respective supporting roles.

Each song was a grenade of energy to the soggy masses.

An excited Martin Campbell, 30, thought the band were very talented and thought  the gig had a good mix of new songs with the old classics. He stated: “I was here in 2011 for Kasabian!”

Kasabian played:
Where Did All The Love Go
Shoot The Runner
Cutt Off
Thick As Thieves
Take Aim
Fastfuse/Pulp Fiction
Switch Blade Smiles
Stuntman/I Feel Love
