After playing five gigs in May 2016, Kasabian have been touring in support of their sixth studio album, For Crying Out Loud, since March 2017.

BackgroundEdit

In May 2016, while still working on For Crying Out Loud, Kasabian performed a few songs in Victoria Park as part of the Leicester City victory parade after Leicester City unexpectedly won the Premier League. They followed it up with two shows at the King Power Stadium, which were organised in a matter of weeks and preceded by two warm up gigs in Bridlington and Swindon.

The For Crying Out Loud tour officially started on 8 March 2017 with two gigs at the Sydney Opera House. It continued in April with several small warm up gigs throughout the UK and Ireland, leading up to a string of festivals in Europe and the UK, including a headline slot at Reading and Leeds Festival.
