More venues going under, and Kasabian have leant their support to a venue in their home town of Leicester, The Charlotte, which has also gone into administration and could close any day now.

Local music fans have set up a petition calling for the venue to be rescued, though I’m not sure who they are petitioning, the King of Leicester maybe.

Anyway, Kasabian singer Tom Meighan says the band will adds it name to any campaign to save the venue, telling a local newspaper: “If we can help, we will. At the end of the day, it’s a legendary venue”.
