Kings Of Leon slam Reading Festival crowd after headline show

Nathan Followill calls fans 'frozen'

Kings Of Leon‘s Nathan Followill has slammed the Reading Festival crowd he played a headline show for last night (August 28), describing them as “cold”.

The drummer and his band played the first Main Stage headline show of the weekend, but after the set he posted a message on Twitter criticising the fans for giving them a poor reception.

Reading? What the fuck?” he wrote. “Zero love for the kings. I know it was cold but holy shit, y’all were frozen. I can only hope Leeds is in better form.”


Kings Of Leon are set to take to the Main Stage in Leeds tomorrow, while Radiohead will headline tonight.
