If you were one of many who got to see Kings of Leon over the weekend, we’re sure you had an amazing night! Rave reviews are circling the airwaves and newspapers from critics and fans who attended the gigs held in the 3Arena. Our very own Marty from the Morning Glory team was there to experience the show first-hand on Saturday’s opening night.
“It was an outstanding show from the word go. The music, crowd, light and sound made it an incredible show. The crowd was in fine singing form too when front-man Caleb Followill announced that he is in fact a quarter Irish. An eruption of ‘Olé, Olé, Olé’ chants filled the huge 3Arena.”
The band will be happy to see the rave reviews from numerous sources such as:
“Kings of Leon rock the 3Arena to its foundations with rousing return to Dublin” The Irish Mirror
“Stunning” Five Stars ***** The Irish Star / Buzz.ie
“U.S. Rockers Raise The Roof At 3Arena” Dublin Live
“Leon Lads High Kings of Ireland” The Sunday World
“4/5” The Examiner
“Kings of Leon have evolved into seasoned pros and one hell of a live band” Entertainment.ie
