*Κάποτε εμείς του Υπογείου είχαμε καταφέρει να γίνουμε administrators του Official fan Club Greece των Kasabian. Τότε λοιπόν μου είχε ζητηθεί να γράψω το review από το πρώτο live της μπάντας στην χώρα μας για το Kasabianlive.com. Εκεί λοιπόν πρωτοδημοσιεύτηκε το παρακάτω κείμενο και γι'αυτό το λόγο το αφήσαμε στα αγγλικά.

I arrived at the venue around 16:30, Although I have seen Kasabian performing live two times before, I never had the chance to live this experience in my own country. We had gotten close in August of 2007, but unfortunately due to a huge fire in Athens, the show was cancelled just one day before! That's why I didn’t know what to expect this time, so I chose to get to the venue very early. Time passed quickly though, with a little help from the other bands (Wheatman, Customs, Miles Kane and James).
The moment came! Clock was pointing at 00:10 when Kasabian came on stage! First reaction? PANDEMONIUM. First song of the night “Days Are Forgotten”, the crowd instantly goes crazy, followed by “Shoot The Runner”,  now that’s a proper start for THE live! Third song was “Velociraptor”, by that time I felt like we were all dinosaurs on a leash! “Underdog” came next and I said to myself not a chance to stop dancing tonight! The dream goes on with “Where Did All The Love Go” Tom dedicated this song to Greece, personally I have no answer to that! Next stop, “Let’s Roll Just Like We Used To”: I think that was the only song I enjoyed Kasabian performing live without bumping into other people! After that the air filled by a masterpiece called “I.D”. Next in row “Take Aim” and they were serious about it! Can you See Kasabian on the way now? No words can describe what happened when “Club Foot” started! After that we got electrified by “Re-wired” and the EPIC “Empire”.   Half of the show is gone and I am feeling like they ve been on stage for 15 minutes! Heatwave in the middle of the night due to Kasabian!
When you think it cannot get any hotter, “Fast Fuse” comes to tear apart the place and every single one of us is spitting out lava... As usually, it was mixed with “Misirlou”, originally a Greek song. Coming next “Goodbye Kiss” lucky for us they were just joking cause after this, the absolute live track of Kasabian hit the floor “L.S.F”. When the song ended the boys left the stage leaving us feeling lost and singing the tune of the song over and over!
Minutes after that they came back for the encore!
Switchblade Smiles” was the first one followed by “Vlad The Impaler” and yes, like everyone else, I believe that all my friends are sharp as razors! The Last song of the night was “Fire”. Indeed, fireworks lit in front of them! Tom started the song saying the following “You are going for a revolution right now, I understand, with all this shit that’s happening in this country but, onwards and onwards!”. Also Tom had a little surprise for us in the end, when fire ended he came on stage for one more time and sung a capella The Beatles song  “she loves you Fire”.

Show is over, people are leaving the venue, maybe days are forgotten but certainly this night won't be! No words can describe the feelings from that gig. Speaking on behalf of the Official Greek Fan Club, I hope the lads loved us ,as much as we do for so many years, and that soon they will be on a plane headed to Greece soon! Thank you Tom, Serge, Chris, Ian and last but not least Jay…
