Brothers Caleb, Nathan and Jared Followill, and cousin Matthew Followill -- otherwise known as the multiplatinum-selling, Grammy-winning rockers Kings of Leon -- hit the stage at Concord Pavilion as part of their 2014 Mechanical Bull tour, which includes indie rockers Young the Giant ("It's About Time") and South African band Kongos ("Come With Me Now"). Kings of Leon's latest disc has spawned the Top 10 singles "Supersoaker," "Wait for Me" and "Temple," and follows an unbroken run of smash albums since their '03 debut. Kings of Leon's album Only by the Night went double platinum in the U.S. alone and their hits "Sex on Fire" and "Use Somebody" earned them four Grammy Awards. Learn More

Featured review from Norm Levin

This group of excellent musicians was sabotaged by an underperforming sound system, especially in the first show. Overly loud to the point of distortion, the singers were outmatched by the amps. Second show was considerably better, although by then about half of the audience had left. As for the performance itself, HBR tends toward long songs with repetitive lyrics with heavy jazz influences. They seem more in tune with their audience when they hold more closely to traditional tunes.
Quotes & Highlights
“Few things rejuvenate the soul like a warm fireside drink after an exhausting day in the snow. Hot Buttered Rum has that effect. Their original songs are instantly familiar and inviting, and their easygoing versions of timeless classics (the Beatles, Hank Williams) belie the intricacy of the arrangements.” —_San Francisco Chronicle _
