Kings of Leon announced a show at London’s Hyde Park for June 30, 2010, and when tickets went on sale this morning, it has been reported that 65, 000 tickets have sold out in seconds!  Wow!  Can 65,000 people be wrong?  I am one of the most open-minded people musically that you’ll ever encounter, and when I saw Kings of Leon live in 2008, I was excited to match the music with the name I kept hearing about.  Song after song, I was totally nonplussed.  I didn’t think their music was offensive; however, I felt that at best it was mediocre bar band music.  To make it worse, they opened for Radiohead, who blew them further into oblivion as far as I am concerned.  I’ve read interviews with lead singer Caleb Followill and it seems that he loves to brag about how drunk he can get whenever possible.  According2g, I don’t get Kings of Leon.  Can someone please enlighten me?
