KASABIAN will be playing London’s O2 Arena for a massive New Year’s Eve gig that will help see in 2012.

Not content with flexing their muscles in some of the country’s best arenas for a monster 13-date headline tour throughout December (including two nights at the O2), Kasabian will also be joined by Chase & Status Live and Zane Lowe for a night of “high-octane entertainment and show-stopping celebrations” on December 31.

Announcing the show earlier this week, Kasabian said: “It’s been a hell of a year for us and we can’t think of a better way to celebrate NYE than with our fans, friends and family by our side. We promise to set The O2 on fire! Bring on 2012!”

Chase & Status added: “We’re really looking forward to playing the world famous The O2 on New Year’s Eve with Kasabian and Zane Lowe. It’s the icing on the cake for what has been a great year for us.”

Tickets go on sale from 9am on Friday, November 11.
