Kings Of Leon think V Festival crowd are ‘wonderful’

Frontman Caleb admits he may have drunk a little too much

Kings Of Leon played an early evening slot at today’s (August 16)

Staffordshire leg of the V Festival.

Sporting black leather jackets the quartet pulled a large crowd, despite the ongoing rain, playing songs including ‘Charmer’, ‘Four Kicks’ and ‘On Call’.


Staying pretty much non-vocal throughout the set, apart from singing, frontman Caleb Followill got the crowd dancing along from the opening chord.

Playing tracks from their past three albums, including their future fourth, the soon to be released ‘Only By The Night’, the band remained in good spirits throughout.

Getting merrier towards the end frontman Caleb, just before launching into ‘The Bucket’, recognised his appreciation of the gathered crowd saying: “See, you guys are wonderful…I’m a little drunk up here I’m getting drunker as I move.”

The crowd then cheered before the foursome continued with their set.

However it was next track, ‘On Call’, that received the biggest sing-along.

Towards the end of the set an obviously choked Caleb said: “It wasn’t exactly the best day for weather but this goes down as one of my best shows…god bless you all.”
