Bring your queen to see the rock band Kings of Leon at the United Center Monday, January 23, and stay at the nearby and affordable Best Western Plus Chicago Hotel at Hillside!
Kings of Leon enters its seventeenth year of successful touring and recording. As one of this country’s preeminent rock bands. the brothers Followill and their cousin Caleb, out of Nashville bring their unique style and sound to one of Chicago’s better music venues.
The Followills, as boys, traveled with their family from tent show to tent show, their father being a Pentecostal minister of some repute. Then they fell in love with country music. At the time of their early releases such as “Holy Roller Novocaine,” brother Jared had yet to graduate from high school.
The Kings of Leon have a blended style of Southern rock and blues that sets them squarely apart from other bands. Ironically, their first successes were in England, with forty top singles and two Brit Awards. The band’s fourth album, “Only by the Night” was a breakout success, both in England and the US. In 2010, the Kings of Leon won a Grammy Award for Record of the Year, Best Performance by a Group.
