How about someone give a review of Kings of Leon

Hey I know this is a U2 site and all (no duh), but since they ARE opening for the greatest rock and roll band, how about someone who was at last nights show give us a quick blurb about the opening set with Kings. I want to know if they put on a good show.

They didn't make an impression on me but that's just my opinion.

Sorry, but as far as I'm concerned they sucked big time.

I had gone in with an open mind but was grossly disapointed. I'm not sure if there sound system is horrible but I couldn't make out even one word from the singer, not 1.

I'm not looking forward to seeing them 4 more times on this leg.

I only hope they get someone else for the 3rd leg.

Think Southern Rock meets Punk Rock with unbelievably tight pants.

Well I know a little about them....have only heard their big hit right now, The Bucket, but I was hoping they'd put on a decent live show and gather a US following (they're prtty big in the UK, which is funny with them being from Nashville or Memphis I think).

So far, not a good start...hahaha! Just don't give them a review comparing to the headliner....that would be totally unfair!

There's a bit of truth to that. From what I've heard, they've never played venues this large.

Well, I will add that the audience (including me) was very gracious.

Who knows maybe a lot of people liked them, I didn't though.

they were terrible'. every opening act that i have ever seen who didn't utter one intelligible word has never made it. if they would have used an irish band like the Frames to open up it would have been perfect.

I can't believe you guys don't hype for Kings of the Leon. I saw them 2 weeks ago and they brought the house down. Plus Jesus plays drums for them.

Hey ramblin rose glad you gave them a chance. Too bad you didn't enjoy them as much as I did (and others).

They are suppose to be on Jay Leno tonight (Show). I've only seen them on Conan OBrien. Maybe I'll get a better idea how they sound. I didn't think they were that bad, but I've not heard them, truly, live..yet.
I know Spin magazine and Europe loves them. But these writers and I disagree often. And it's true they haven't played the magnitude of a concert like U2, ever...untill last night, that is.
Hopefully they can adjust and kick ass as the tour goes on.

Kings of Leon were PHENOMENAL last night. I was gob-smacked, frankly. I saw them open for the Strokes in San Francisco last year, and they were impressive then, but this time they were even better.

The hype surrounding this band is well-deserved and it's obvious why Bono chose them to open. Yeah, the singer is unintelligible, but who gives a shit about lyrics? This is rock n' roll--if you want good lyrics, go read Yeats!

Easily the most talented teenaged rock band in a long, long time.

Only one of them is still a teenager, the band were 3/4's in their 20s when Holy Roller Novacaine (first EP) came out.

Great band -- seen em 5 times in clubs and they never fail to impress. Will be interesting to see how they go over in an arena but they rocked the casbah at T in the Park last year on the mainstage.

let's hope Bono doesn't read this, his lyrics have changed my life! (can't say the same for Kings of Leon, however)
