Kings Of Leon play storming show at Radio City Music Hall

Caleb Followill: 'We've finally made it'

Kings Of Leon performed a stellar set at esteemed New York venue Radio City Music Hall last night (September 19).

Following sets by Manchester Orchestra and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, the Tennessee family took to the stage at 10pm.

Opening with ‘Four Kicks’, it was four songs in before frontman Caleb Followill addressed the crowd, saying: “Thank you very much, we’re Kings Of Leon.”

Toasting the elated audience with a drink, Followill was clearly moved by the crowd’s reception, saying: “I’d just like to say what an honour it is to be playing not just New York City but Radio City. We’ve finally made it.”

Waving goodbye after ‘Trani’, the band then returned for an uplifting four-song encore.
