For many bands the task of sitting behind a desk and signing autographs is not the most enjoyable way to spend time while touring in another country. Kasabian however are clearly not one of those bands. As each person comes up with various things to be signed it's clear the lads from Kasabian are loving the opportunity to meet a few of their Australian fans. Front man Tom Meighan is standing up behind the desk greeting each fan as if they are a long lost mate that he hasn’t seen in years.
He eagerly shook my hand, signed my Kasabian shirt, gave the girl who I was with a big hug and introduced us both to Serge, Chris and Ian. He then asked the girl who I was with whether she wanted anything signed. I had recently read in a interview with Tom where he mentioned that no female fan had asked him to sign their breasts yet. With a few to many drinks in me and knowing my girl had a few to many in her as well, I quickly piped up to him that she would love to get her boobs signed. Tom laughed and asked her if this was true, luckily instead of shooting me a death stare, she laughed and said for sure.
So for the rest of the day she got to walk around with Tom Meighans signature and a love heart written across the top of her boobs. Later that day they absolutely tore up one of the smaller stages in the scorching afternoon heat. The majority of my friends were all shocked that I had chosen to see them over The Killers who had a main stage slot at the same time. Kasabian return to the Big Day Out next year with a much higher profile, get up nice and close and you will not be disappointed.
