Kasabian could find themselves facing a frosty atmosphere when they play in Britain’s capital city next month.
The band were in hot water after a banner reading “London is full c**ts” was projected on stage during a concert in Glasgow on Wednesday.
The band is now on damage control duty, with Serge Pizzorno telling the NME: “We were all shocked and certainly didn’t mean to offend anyone.

“The production team fucked up. There were supposed to be photos of mundane objects in that section but instead I turned around in the middle of [the song] Clouds and couldn’t believe my eyes.”
Reaction to the incident has been varied...
Was Kasabian's "London is full of c*nts" so called "production error" just that? Or was it intentional and it just backfired?— Treetop Flyers (@treetopflyers) November 20, 2014

I'm loving Kasabian's "LONDON IS FULL OF CUNTS" But I'm not sure how that's going to play down with those 5 nights in Brixton 😂— Joe Delaney (@What_Joe_Said) November 20, 2014
Last year Chris told the Leicester Mercury: “I love London – to visit. I wouldn’t want to live there.”
The band are playing sold-out shows at London's O2 Academy in Brixton on December 1,2,4,5,and 6.
