Kasabian frontman Tom Meighan recently said that he would refrain from badmouthing other bands in the future. However, he said nothing about their fans, who are apparently still fair game. Speaking to last week, Meighan revealed that he didn’t enjoy supporting U2 on their ‘360 Degree’ tour one bit.

“I didn’t take in anything supporting them, the gigs were horrible, worst ever”, he said. “U2 fans are cardboard cut-outs, can you imagine supporting U2? Their fans are probably into one band and one album – ‘The Joshua Tree’. I didn’t learn anything because that’s just a fucking different level. It was amazing to watch and meet them [U2], but I didn’t learn anything apart from just get the fuck out”.

He added: “We were the support, so it is what it is. I hate supporting bands, we’re not a support band. So that’s never going to happen again”.
