Kings of Rupp

I've been roaming around, I was looking down at all I see; painted faces fill the places I can't reach; You know that I could use somebody... (The Kings of Leon - Use Somebody)

The Kings of Leon invaded Rupp Arena in Lexington, KY last night (10/10/09) and played to an estatic crowd of about 10,000. The audience stood for the entire show and sang along to most of the songs.

KOL dipped heavily into their most recent and last years suprise success Only By The Night, leading off with Closer, Crawl & Be Somebody. The show steamrolled into some older material Taper Jean Girl and Molly's Chamber. The show moved at an amazing pace and each song felt like a classic. The screen overhead flashed live scenes with pre-arranged graphics and images seamlessly which greatly added to the overall show. The highlights were numerous; the fun Taper Jean Girl; the rocking Molly's Chamber and the powerful Sex on Fire. The house came down during the encore and Use Somebody was played, everyone sang and danced. Last night in Rupp they were the Kings.
