Caleb Followill and the other three Kings of Leon band members tore up Belfast, Glasgow and Staffordshire this week as they continued the debut of their return to music, and the UK.
Fans have been waiting since 2011.
"I know you guys aren't stupid. I can't lie. There are problems in our band bigger than not drinking enough Gatorade," Jared Followill said at the time.
With those tweets in August of 2011, Jared successfully scared every Kings of Leon follower on Earth, announcing problems that jeopardized the existence of one of the biggest bands of the 21st century.
It’s been a month since they returned to the world, debuting their new single “Supersoaker” on July 17, and taking off on a UK tour soon after.
Thursday night in Glasgow at Bellahouston Park was a coincidental gathering for KOL and fans, as everyone there got soaked in the rain to the tune of “Supersoaker,” as well as classic hits like “Use Somebody” and “Pyro.”
Before that the band headlined in Belfast for the Tennant’s Vital Festival on Wednesday night, performing fan favorites such as “On Call” and “Notion,” and on Saturday the band helped open up the V festival in Staffordshire at Weston Park.
They debuted their second single, “Wait for Me,” on August 6, as they prepare for the September 24 release of their new album Mechanical Bull, which serves as their sixth major record, a whole ten years after Youth and Young Manhood, their debut, was released in 2003.
