Glastonbury headliners Kasabian announce Belfast and Dublin gigs
Kasabian, who had the honour of closing this year's Glastonbury festival on Sunday, have announced details of their return to the island of Ireland with dates at The O2, Dublin on 8 December and Odyssey Arena in Belfast the following night.
The Maccabbees are confirmed as special guests for both dates.
The tour is sure to be a hit after the four-piece band secured their fourth consecutive number one album '48.13' this year.
The Leicester rockers put on an energetic show at Glastonbury that saw them perform a selection of their anthemic hits including Club Foot, Shoot The Runner and Processed Beats.
The huge crowd also sang along to their cover of Gnarls Barkley's Crazy as they enjoyed some of the last moments of the festival.
As well as performing on the Pyramid Stage, the band recently took to the stage for a homecoming show at Leicester's Victoria Park, entertaining 50,000 fans.
Tickets for Kasabian with special guests The Maccabees go on-sale this Friday at 9.30am.
December 8: The O2, Dublin. Tickets from €36
December 9: Odyssey Arena, Belfast. Tickets from: £32.50
