The band blasted through a 19-song set at London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire on Friday (August 9), airing new material from their forthcoming album ‘Mechanical Bull’ as well as old favourites including ‘Sex On Fire’ and ‘Use Somebody’. Prince wasn’t the only famous face in attendance on the night, as Entourage star Jeremy Piven was also spotted enjoying himself as the band played.
The gig was live-streamed on YouTube as part of the American Express Unstaged series with Fred Armisen from Saturday Night Live and Portlandia serving as director. Other artists to have played live as part of the American Express Unstaged series include The Killers, Jack White and Usher.
Kings Of Leon will perform at Belfast’s Tennents Vital Festival tonight (August 13) and Glasgow’s Bellahouston Park on Thursday (August 15) before giving headline sets at V Festival in Chelmsford and Staffordshire this weekend. The band have recently unveiled ‘Wait For Me’, a new song from ‘Mechanical Bull’, which is set for release on September 24.
