Kings Of Leon draw mammoth crowd to Carling Weekend: Leeds Festival

Caleb Followill dubs Yorkshire fans 'amazing'

Kings Of Leon drew the biggest crowd of the weekend to the Carling Weekend: Leeds Festival as they took to the Main Stage tonight (August 25).

In scenes reminiscent to Arctic Monkeys‘ set last year, most of the site turned out to see the Followills perform the same songs as last night’s set in Reading.

Despite saying very little during their Friday show, tonight singer Caleb Followill, who was wearing a black shirt, was in jovial form, praising the fans for their support.

He told the audience: “Last night we had a good crowd but tonight this crowd is a lot better.”

With the fans in full voice, many sang along to the likes of ‘Molly’s Chambers’, ‘Bucket’, ‘On Call’ and recent hit single ‘Fans’.

As the band rounded off their UK festival season, Caleb declared: “You guys have been an amazing, amazing audience. It is great to be back in England. God bless you.”
