Kings Of Leon At Hyde Park – What Did You Think?

Last night (30 June) Kings Of Leon played the biggest headline gig of their career so far.

60,000 people witnessed the Followills air three new songs, (working titles: ‘Southbound’, ‘Immortal’ and ‘Radioactive’), as well as a cover of Pixies’ Where Is My Mind’, at London’s Hyde Park.

It’s a mark of how utterly ‘Only By The Night’ has changed their fortunes that Kings Of Leon now seem perfectly at home on stages this vast – though it was notable that the crowd got an awful lot louder whenever they played songs from that album, suggesting a good proportion of their fanbase these days are fairly recent converts.

We’ll be bringing you a full review in the next issue of NME, on sale Wednesday (July 7). In the meantime, what did you make of it?
