Top Five Jay Porks Experiences of 2012
The end of the year brings us empty wallets, fat stomachs and most importantly larger egos than we had the year before. It's because of these egos that people like me put together these year end "best of" lists. Although as you know, here at Concert Confessions we do things a little differently then other sites. We don't have a Top Albums list, Top Artist list, Male and Female Rookies of the year list we do ... Read More

Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds & Kasabian Live In Dublin Ireland
A few years back Reverend Justito started a Facebook group in hopes of getting Kasabian to hit America. Not only did it work, he has met some amazing folks as a result. One of those fine folks is a gal named Ellen who lives in the UK. She travels all over the world to see Kasabian. She gave us one of our first reviews of the band when she took a holiday ...

Watch Kasabian Take On Fatboy Slim

Watch Kasabian Drive From Coachella to Santa Monica
We are posting this video of Kasabian driving from Coachella to Santa Monica for three reasons.
1) Reverend Justito had a blast with Kasabian at Coachella
2) Reverend Justito is obsessed with Kasabian
3) Kasabian basically drives past Reverend Justito’s home in this video and he had no clue they were staying a few blocks away. Clearly he slacked in his stalking duties back in April. That said, stalking Reverend Justito (who is writing this and feels like ... Read More

Bud Lite Concert Stage at Jimmy Kimmel Live - Hollywood, CA
Words/Photos by Reverend Justitio
There is a line from the Kasabian song “Days Are Forgotten” that has been running through my head since I awoke this morning. Perhaps this line is here because I heard the band sound check the song no less than six times yesterday; perhaps it is there because of a deeper meaning? Hell, it is possible it is there for both reasons. The line is as follows:
“Cos I’m ... Read More

Kasabian w/ The Dear Hunter 04/17/12
The Fonda Theatre - Hollywood, CA
Words/Photos by Reverend Justito
Standing along the fence that separates a parking lot from Hollywood Blvd I watched as a tour bus slowly backed up and parked next to an 18 wheeler. With doors for The Fonda Theater not open for another two hours I felt like a teenager again as I watched as each member of the band exited the bus and entered the venue. In a day and age where I ...

Coachella Music and Arts Festival 04/14/12
Empire Polo Fields - Indio, CA
Words/Photos by Reverend Justito
I had three goals for Coachella on Saturday. See as many acts as possible while getting inebriated enough to enjoy Radiohead after having my Kasabian live cherry popped. All I have to say is Mission Fucking Accomplished.
One of my top twelve bands to see at Coachella, I made it to the stage about ½ through the Flower Punkers set. I saw no barfing; I saw no guitars being ... Read More

The Top 12 Must See Acts of Coachella 2012 According To Our Shit Talking Loud Mouth Founder Reverend Justito
My only trek to Indio for three days of music in the desert was nearly 2 ½ years ago. It featured one band performing 8 sets for 45,000 devoted fans. Truth be told, I am a bit scared of my first Coachella experience. I am not really the violent type, but the right mix of mind altering substances as well as the heat and ... Read More

A few months back when the Rev Justito was telling us all at the Concert Confessions family about this band known as Kasabian I didn't really do much but a Wikipedia quick peak, and move on. I mean this was coming from a fan of the Electric Six , how could I take him seriously?
Truth be told, Kasabian has went from "Band I'll see to review for Concert Confessions" to "Band I can't f%&king wait to see because they are f%&king ... Read More

After months and months of Facebook groups being started, Twitter accounts being created-England's brightest stars Kasabian , are finally here in North America.
Even with tickets to their Terminal 5 show on March 22nd purchased, I still wasn't gonna believe it til I saw it with my own eyes. And at the Ed Sullivan Theater in Manhattan yesterday, when I tuned in at about 12:31 AM, there they were.
I'm confident that Letterman pronounces the name of their album "Velociraptor" better than I do, ... Read More

Kasabian Announce 2012 North American Tour
For those who are unaware, our founder Reverend Justito is obsessed with Kasabian. Last year he launched a Facebook Group with the goal to bring the band back to America. When the groups outstanding new record Velociraptor! failed to crack the Billboard Top 200 he upped the ante by creating a Twitter and a Tumblr page. Well, the good news for Reverend Justitio is that it worked as today Kasabian announced dates for a massive tour of ... Read More

Kasabian Debuts New Material During U.K. Club Show
With their intimate tour of UK clubs kicking off in Sheffield last night, Kasabian fans were finally rewarded to a sneak peak of what is to come from the bands highly anticipated 4th album. With the O2 Academy sold out for weeks, the boys from Leicestershire debuted the songs “Velociraptor” and “Switchblade Smile” much to the delight of fans. While the current quality of clips from Sheffield leaves a lot to be desired, one must ... Read More

Heineken Open'er Festival - Gdynia, Poland
Words by Reverend Justito/concertconfessions.com
When one does a simple Google search of “Kasabian North America” the first two WebPages that pop up are Concert Confessions creations (Please join our Facebook group). I am pretty sure on a personal level I have done more work getting Kasabian on So-Cal radio juggernaut KROQ then the bands US label has. To be honest, I fear the band may not even have a US label at this point. So while Kasabian may not be ... Read More

Clearly, I should have spent the weekend in Luxembourg instead of Ventura. Somewhere in that pint-sized nation was an event called the Rock-A-Field Festival. Not only did it feature the #1 band Concert Confessions would like to see play in America again, but those lucky Luxembourgers (is that a real word? Fuck it – it is now) were treated to Lil Miss Hayley Williams of Paramore rocking “Passenger” with Deftones.
Sure, she may not be Maynard, but she has a much nice set of ... Read More

Astra Kulterhaus - Berlin, Germany
Words/Photos/Video by Ellen
Editors note: Ellen helps me run the Facebook Group "Bring Kasabian to North America." She was kind enough to e-mail me this review.
This is a first for me Ive ever written a review before so hopefully you will get the jest of it.
This has to be one of the strangest yet best venues I have been to see Kasabian play.
It can best be described as a bomb hit shed in someones back garden, but once ... Read More

For many years now I have been a fan of a band from the United Kingdom. They are called Kasabian, and they manage to make some amazing psychedelic indie alt Brit-pop. While the band has won major awards, played some large stadium/festival gigs across Europe, America for whatever reason has never accepted the band (I blame you RCA/Columbia). In fact, I just happened to find their recent album – West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum on accident, not off ... Read More
