Customer Review

on 9 June 2013
Kasabian have come a long way since their debut album was released in 2004 where they were usually the opening band on the 2nd stage at numerous festivals and were labelled as Oasis and Stone Roses rip offs, since that time they have gone to festival headliners as well as playing to sold out arenas across the U.K and Europe as well as releasing 3 more diverse albums. The most recent of which was 2011's "Velociraptor" which is the tour this Blu-Ray covers from their sold out show at London's O2 arena from December of 2011.

If you happened to catch any of those shows then you will be familiar with the set list as well as the amazing light show and back lit LED screen that the band used for the tour. Staring off with "Days are Forgotten" which begins with all the band on the stage with the exception of lead singer Tom Meighan who sings into a camera behind the stage and a 3D digitalised image of Meighan singing is transported over the stage. The band tear through tracks from all 4 studio albums and just as they bring the pace down around the half way mark they kick into "Club Foot" which sends the O2 into pandemonium.

There is a rousing rendition of L.S.F to close the main set before they return with a fantastic triple onslaught of tracks beginning with the electro heavy "Switchblade Smiles" with its heavy beats and industrial sounding guitars and big sounding bass, it's bold and brave but they pull it off brilliantly. "Vlad The impaler" is then followed by the nine minute long sing along "Fire". It's safe to say the crowd go home happy.

Also included is a half hour documentary that follows Kasabian on their U.K and Ireland tour as well as a look at the coming together of the big production that the band wanted for this tour. There is also a CD of the show containing 13 of the songs and when compared to the double CD release of the show it actually sounds a lot better as the sound quality on the original double CD wasn't the best. This is a nice souvenir if you caught any of the shows from this tour or if you want to see how much Kasabians sound has evolved over the years.
