Meet the artists
Kings of Leon is an American rock band that formed in Nashville in 2000. The band is composed of brothers Caleb Followill, Nathan Followill and Jared Followill, with their cousin Matthew Followill.
Their music was blend of Southern rock and blues influences, but it has gradually expanded throughout the years to include a variety of genres and a more alternative, arena rock sound. Their initial success was achieved in the UK with nine Top 40singles,two BRIT Awards and all of their albums peaked in the top five of the UK albums Chart.. After the release of Only by the Night the band also achieved chart success in the United States.
The singles “Sec on Fire¨, ¨Use Somebody¨and ¨Notion¨ all peaked at number one on the Hot Modern Rock Trackschardt. Kings of Leon is making a fun record, that’s what they are. That’s what made their fans fall in love with them in the first place.”
Lenny Kavitz will be hitting the road for an extensive world tour, performing songs from his studio album Strut as well as from a distinguished career that has made him one of the most distinctive and successful recording artists of the past quarter century. “I feel like I’m just beginning, like I’m just hitting my stride,” he says, and in its high energy, optimism and sheer love of music making, Strut sounds that way too. – Anthony DeCurtis
On saturday 25th of July the Robbie Williams’ concert will take place. He has sold over 70 million albums over his solo career and has won more BRIT Awards than any other artist in history. Robbie’s 2010 Brit Award for Outstanding Contribution To Music brought his tally of Brits to an astonishing 17.
