Kasabian’s Serge Confirms Rolling Stones For Glasto?

EXCLUSIVE! Plus psychadelic rockers to headline Hard Rock Calling 2013...

Kasabian star Serge Pizzorno believes The Rolling Stones will be headlining Glastonbury this summer.

With his band making their only UK festival appearance at Hard Rock Calling on Saturday 29th June, Serge is promising fans a night to remember at London’s Olympic Park.
 
Speaking to MTV News about Kasabian’s Hard Rock headline slot, the 32-year-old let slip about the legendary Stones finally playing the Pyramid Stage.
 
“I hope ours is the most talked about performance of the weekend, but that would be a miracle because The Rolling Stones are playing Glastonbury.”
 
 
Serge – who in recent years has headlined festivals including V and Reading & Leeds with Kasabian – admitted to us the offer of topping the bill at Hard Rock this summer was too good to turn down.
 
“It came as a bit of a shock because we were planning on not doing anything this year,” he revealed.
 
“It’s nice because we’ll be christening the Olympic Park and we’re playing with Paul Weller and Miles Kane, so it’s gonna be a great Saturday night.”
 
And Serge has been assured by Hard Rock organisers there will be no sound issues now the festival has moved from Hyde Park, which was often criticised for being too quiet.
 
“This band does not work at low levels – it needs to be deafening.”
 
Tickets for Hard Rock Calling 2013 go on-sale at 9am on Friday 8th March and are available from hardrockcalling.co.uk.
