Michael Stipe and Josh Hartnett turn out at Punchestown

Kings Of Leon attracted a star studded audience for their storming performance at Oxegen this evening (July 7).

R.E.M singer Michael Stipe and Hollywood star Josh Hartnett turned out to watch the four-piece play an hour performance which saw the band lace their set with tracks from their recent album ‘Because Of The Times’ along with favourites from their debut ‘Youth And Young Manhood’ and follow-up ‘Aha-Shake Heartbreak’.

A huge crowd turned out to see the band despite a huge downpour before they arrived onstage.

Referring to the weather conditions after the sun finally broke through the clouds, singer Caleb Followill, who was sporting a cropped haircut, told the crowd: “Well guys its stopped raining out there. We do that every time, I don’t know how”.

During the show, the band sparked mass sing-a-longs for early hit single ‘Molly’s Chambers’, ‘Milk’, ‘Bucket’ and recent single ‘On Call’.

Before the band launched into ‘Knocked Up’, Caleb thanked the crowd declaring: “You guys are amazing out there. Thank you for being so good to us”.
