Kasabian's Glastonbury plans

Kasabian's lead singer Tom Meighan reveals the band's Glastonbury dreams and up and coming music projects.
Great deals on musical instruments

Kasabian would love to play Glastonbury next year.

The `Fire' hitmakers had such a good time performing at last year's event that they are hoping to be asked to top the bill at the world-famous music festival - which takes place in Worthy Farm, Somerset, South England, every June - in 2011.

Singer Tom Meighan said: I remember the sun going down and I had straw jacket on and long hair blowing everywhere all these flags - it was wonderful.

"Last year was amazing so hopefully we'll be about next year and play it."

The group were one of many names linked to replacing U2 - who were forced to pull out of this year's Glastonbury after singer Bono suffered a spinal injury - but insist they were never asked, though they imagine the Irish rockers will be upset about being unable to play.

He added to BANG Showbiz: "It's sad about Bono because he'll be distraught."

Following their festival commitments this summer, Kasabian are planning to go back to the recording studio, but are keeping tight-lipped about who they will be working with on the follow-up to their 2009 LP `West Ryder Pauper Lunatics Asylum'.

He said:" We've got a record coming. We're going to start recording it in the winter, in October. I can't give you any names - I can't say anything."
