Kings Of Leon play Main Stage set at Carling Weekend: Reading Festival

Night falls as the Followills take to the main stage

Kings Of Leon performed to a predictably large crowd as night fell over the Carling Weekend: Reading Festival this evening (August 24).

Saying almost as little as their main stage predecessors Interpol, the Followills performed a lengthy 17-song set on the Main Stage, warming the crowd up for headliners Razorlight.

Wearing a checked shirt and sporting short hair, singer Caleb Followill was typically mute between songs, but at one point feebly encouraged the audience to sing along to ‘Milk’ saying: “I need you guys to sing along with me, thank you very much.”

Greeting songs such as ‘Fans’ and ‘Knocked Up’ with relatively minor cheers, it was the more upbeat selection that the crowd ate up including ‘Charmer’ and ‘The Bucket’.

Kings Of Leon played:

‘Black Thumbnail’

‘Taper Jean Girl’

‘King Of The Rodeo’


‘My Party’


‘Molly’s Chambers’

‘The Bucket’


‘Four Kicks’

‘On Call’


‘Spiral Staircase’


‘Knocked Up’


‘Slow Night, So Long’
