Kasabian performed their self-titled debut album in full to mark the 10th anniversary of its release at the iTunes Festival on Friday night (05.09.14).
The rockers treated fans to a special rendition of the LP instead of having a support act and classic tracks such as 'Club Foot', 'Processed Beats' and 'L.S.F' had The Roundhouse venue in London jumping.
The group played an extended version of 'Cut Off' with a electronic breakdown complete with strobe lights and guitarist-and-songwriter Serge Pizzorno took on keyboard duties.
After departing the stage to a rapturous applause, the band took a short break before returning for their second set of the night made up of their greatest hits and tracks from latest album '48:13'.
They kicked off with 'Bumble Bee' and followed it up with an incendiary version of 'Shoot The Runner', 'Underdog' and then 'Stevie'.
Before the band played 'Eez-eh', singer Tom Meighan led the crowds in a chant of "easy, easy" reminiscent of the chants British wrestling legend Big Daddy would make during his matches after performing his trademark moves.
After performing 'Goodbye Kiss', Kasabian exited the stage for a second time returning for their encore during which they played 'Empire' and 'Vlad The Impaler'.
Before launching into last track 'Fire', Tom told fans: "Roundhouse you've been empire, thank you."
The crowd went wild during 'Fire' and at one stage Serge implored everyone to sit down before urging them back on their feet as the group played the final choruses of the song sparking a huge mosh pit.
Kasabian's show attracted a star-studded audience with famous fans including actor Idris Elba, soccer player Peter Crouch and his wife Abbey Clancy, Miles Kane, 'Boardwalk Empire' actor Stephen Graham, Sadie Frost and magician Dynamo.
The iTunes Festival continues throughout September with Tony Bennett performing tonight (06.09.14) and Calvin Harris taking to The Roundhouse stage on Sunday evening (07.09.14).
