Don’t ever underestimate the Kings. At the risk of sounding like every person who has ever seen them live, I have been a fan from day one; I saw a preview for their first album Youth and Young Manhood in Rolling Stone magazine in 2003 and haven’t turned them off since.

While the albums speak for themselves, I have no reservations about calling KOL the best live act I have yet to hear. I have attended venues for many rock and roll demigods including the likes of the Rollings Stones, AC/DC, Guess Who, Bob Dylan, RHCP, and many many more.

The Kings have had the beautiful opportunity to attract mainstream audiences to their music via a selection of radio-friendly jingles including Sex on Fire, Use Somebody, and Notion. However, many fans don’t realize that the pinnacle of KOL’s greatness is found in perfectly gritty earlier albums. This allows for new listeners to revel in the discovery of countless great songs, and old listeners to feel an incredibly nostalgic connection to the live show. At the Calgary concert, lead singer Caleb even excused anybody who changed radio stations everytime Sex on Fire was played, saying he ‘d do the exact same thing.

As soon as the lights went down, the entire setlist felt like it was engineered entirely for me. I willfully surrendered my last opportunity to get alcohol, because I simply could not do them the disservice of getting up. During an almost two hour performance, KOL played cult-classics like Taper Jean Girl, Four Kicks, Molly’s Chambers, Red Morning LIght, Milk, and Charmer.

The Kings stand alone for a number of reasons, and a number of huge, video screens gave listeners an intimate glance at the band up-close. Another important distinction was that Caleb was not afraid to address the crowd personally. Many bands can barely remember the name of the city they’re playing for, and KOL made every effort to give the fans a true and sincere connection. Part of this came from the heart and soul that IS KOL, and part came from perhaps their surprise at the jumping, dancing, screaming aduience. This is a concert in which you expect to stand at all times, and not just during the encore. (in which they played FOUR songs btw).

Standing for two hours without a drink in my hand is not usually my idea of a good time, but I can honestly say that the set was perfect. They were worth every penny, and at no point did I look at my watch and wonder when the encore was coming.

About the only bad thing I can say about the concert was that there were no experimental interludes or extended jamming – most of the songs were clean off the albums. It appeared KOL’s sound crew was experiencing small difficulties that were eventually sorted out around the halfway point.

Buy the albums, see the live shows – this band is going to be around for a long time, and listening to the evolution of their music is truly a beautiful experience. Do not underestimate the Kings, they will rock you, use you, and kick you to the curb and you will crawl back for more. They’re lusty, drenched in sin, with explosive energy. This is one of the bands that has saved the 2000s from being labeled as one of Pearl Jam rip-off rock bands. In a time when SO MUCH crap music is being touted as SO GREAT, it is truly comforting to know that my generation hasn’t lost all its musical credibility. Raunchy southern-rock is alive and well; no matter how awkward they seem to fit within the moulding of mainstream top-40 rock.

While the albums speak for themselves, I have no reservations about calling KOL the best live act I have yet to hear. Many fans don’t realize that the pinnacle of KOL’s greatness is found in perfectly gritty earlier albums. The Kings stand alone for a number of reasons, and a number of huge, video screens gave listeners an intimate glance at the band up-close.

For the uninitiated, Kings of Leon is not a new band. This wasn’t their first tour, and “Sex On Fire” and “Use Somebody” aren’t their first singles ever to get radio play. This is just the first time that American rock radio has given them their due. One EP and four albums into their careers, their home turf has finally shown some love.
A humble little band from Nashville, Tennessee, Kings of Leon consists of the Followill brothers; Caleb, Jared, and Nathan, and their cousin Matthew. Their cousin Matthew didn’t join the band until 2002 when the band was signed to RCA Records.

The Kings of Leon put on a great show! The set list was good, sound was very good, pace of the show was good and the lighting was simple but rockin’. Just a good band playing great music. Thank you!

This concert was amazing. They rocked the place. I was front row right by the stack and I left that concert never been happier to be deaf. They have canceled the rest of their summer tour, But its okay. They need to do what they need to do to get better. The event and staff was great. Looking forward to going back to The Wharf for another concert!

It’s no secret to those who know me that I am a bit of a geek for KOL. And I’m fine with that. I don’t hold it over anyone’s head with a “you should have heard them when …” type attitude. Eff that. Hear them now. They are among a small handful of bands today, mainstream or otherwise, who keep themselves fresh. Their most recent album Only By The Night is a much slower paced, but cleaner sounding record than previous efforts. And THAT is what makes them good. They didn’t find a formula and stick with it, plowing out repetitive CD after repetitive CD. (I’m looking at you Nickelback, Disturbed, et al.) Their formula is that they just click. And when they click, they write music.

Third consecutive year seeing KoL in Atlanta. Out of town for the Tabernacle performance the year before otherwise I would have seen them there too.

Just before 9pm, the house lights dimmed, the crowd roared, and the opening chords of “Crawl” carried heavily across the venue. And during that time all my pretentious “real” fan doubt was put to rest. And the night wasn’t lost on the band either.
Just before going into their last pre-encore song, all the music stopped. Everyone was still cheering and we had no idea why. Over the next 10 minutes Caleb Followill addressed the crowd, saying “thank you” more times than I would ever be able to count. Then came the most touching statement of the night.

For the uninitiated, Kings of Leon is not a new band. A humble little band from Nashville, Tennessee, Kings of Leon consists of the Followill brothers; Caleb, Jared, and Nathan, and their cousin Matthew. Their cousin Matthew didn’t join the band until 2002 when the band was signed to RCA Records. The Kings of Leon put on a great show! Just a good band playing great music.
