Kings of Leon: Brighton Centre, Brighton

David Sinclair, Times, The, 3 December 2008

CALEB FOLLOWILL was in an expansive mood as Kings of Leon began their biggest British tour yet. "This has been one of the best years of our life," the singer told a heaving crowd of adoring fans. With a No 1 album (Only by the Night) a No 1 single ('Sex on Fire') and a headlining performance at Glastonbury to look back on, it has been the year that the Tennessee backwoodsmen arrived in the premier league. And this show certainly had the mark of a big rock production about it.
