Kings of Leon Live

Just got back from watching Kings of Leon at the O2 arena in London and WOW!

Firstly i was extremely impressed with the venue its massive! 22,000 sell out last night so it was packed to the rafters.

The Kings were simply awesome they really did put on a fantastic show. They played 25 songs and were on stage for 1hr 50 mins which i think is a fantastic effort. The whole stadium was right into it! the brand new songs or the older ones it did not matter the crowd where just going for it!

I really think this band are getting bigger and bigger all the time and going on last night they are only gonna get bigger!

Am I the only one who's mildly horrified that KOL have become an arena act?

no, I join ya in that sentiment however I highly doubt that they would sell out a 22,000 seat arena here in the US. Seems they are doing better/more popular in Europe.

They're playing MSG, I think in January. I never even considered the possibility that they'd rise to this level of popularity. I probably would've made more of an effort to catch them on their last tour if I'd known I would' have the chance to see them in a small or mid-sized place again.

If the band can stay sober enough/out of trouble/together, Kings of Leon will be the size of U2 some day.

I am shocked how I really love thier entire new album. Every time I've tried to listen to thier old stuff I get horrible flashbacks of being trapped in the elipse listening to them I just do not like thier old stuff at all.

I also was interested in going to see them locally here in Columbus but was cavalier about getting tickets. Until I heard they were sold out a few days after going on sale :shock:

I really can't stand Kings of Leon, I can't believe their new album is set to outsell Coldplay's in the UK, the singles sound so bad...

Yep Kings of Leon album will now outsell Coldplay by the end of 2008! it really is a fantastic achievement. I am so excited by them and if anyone has caught them live on their current tour you will know why! they are just increadiable they play for nearly 2 hrs every show which includes set list over 26+ songs! compare that to Oasis 16-18 songs per set and there is no comparision.

These guys will def be the main challengers to U2's crown as the biggest act in the world over the next 5 years or so.
