Kasabian's frontman Sergio Pizzorno addressed rumours the band are set to appear at Glastonbury to perform a surprise set this weekend. The Midlands band, from Leicestershire, headlined the Pyramid Stage in 2014.

Fans are speculating the band could fill the 6pm slot on Saturday at the Woodsies Stage, not only because of the anniversary but also due to their upcoming tour schedule and a huge hint from the secret Glastonbury account. On X, formerly Twitter, the account @secretglaso posted: "Has anyone got a club foot from queueing all night?"

This could be a hint to Kasabian's big hit Club Foot. The band announced they will be going on tour in July and released a new single Coming Back To Me Good earlier this year.

The band, consisting of singer and guitarist Sergio Pizzorno, bassist Chris Edwards, drummer Ian Matthews and guitarist Tim Carter, appeared on The One Show to perform the new song on Friday night (June 28). Host Roman Kemp grilled them about the rumours, asking: "You headlined Glastonbury, I have heard rumours potentially of a return out there?"

Sergio looked stunned as he went silent for a few seconds before giving fans some definite hope of an appearance although not confirming they would definitely appear. He said: "Errr the wellies are always packed. They're by the door waiting to go, so you never know."

Viewers weren't all impressed by their performance on the BBC show though. Nick Davis asked on X, formerly Twitter: "Kasabian - flat? #TheOneShow." Nick Beecheno complained: "Oh my ears." Lucy C wrote: "This new Kasabian song has to be satire."

Daniel Leaper added: "Well this is awful #TheOneShow."
