Kasabian close curtain on Camden Crawl
Kasabian brought this year’s Camden Crawl to a thunderous end at the Roundhouse last night, following performances from The View, The Maccabees and more.
Taking to the stage lead singer Tom Meighan needed to say little more then a shout of “Camden!” to excite the biggest crowd of the weekend so far.
The Leicester band opened their set with new single ‘Vlad The Impaler’ before whipping the crowd into a frenzy with ‘Reason Is Treason’ and ‘Shoot The Runner’.
Meighan dressed in a grey, star emblazed shirt looked like an American soccer mum, but fashion tips weren’t the order of the day with many of the mosh pit removing their tops by the time crowd-pleaser ‘Cutt Off’ was given an airing mid-set.
Guitarist Serge Pizzorno’s aggressive guitar work shone through a tight, sweaty headline performance with the group ending with a three-song sing-a-long playing second album lead track ‘Empire’, which raised the atmosphere, before finishing with ‘Stuntman’ and an impassioned version of ‘Clubfoot’.
