I noticed that all their stage equipment was with them as well and after the few stripped down shows in Canada, that is a great sight to see! I went to google maps to see Rod Layer Arena so I could get a better feel for where the boys from Kings of Leon would be playing and it looked to be a big arena! I also noticed a stadium close to this one that was even bigger! Seeing that stadium made me wonder if Caled and the boys were able to watch a real a real game of football called rugby! Since they love college football and their Oklahoma Sooners! Maybe they even meet some of the big time players and got to see the huge stadium! Of course they might even have had some of the players watching their show! haha makes ya wonder! They did get this picture! Nathan has said he loves to golf and has been in a contest or two! Jared must have been off somewhere planking!! haha or I guess the new thing now is Tebowing! What will they think of next?

Lead singer Caleb Followill admitted he had been quaking in his boots five years ago when the US rock group played the arena, supporting Pearl Jam.
"I don't think I've ever been so terrified as I was then waiting to come on," he told the crowd. "But I'm not afraid any more."
The Use Somebody band have been living it up in Melbourne.
After catching up with Joe and Tony Hachem after the show, they ended up back at Crown playing poker until late.
I was so jealous of these fans when I saw the setlist as they didn't play this at our last show and I was really thinking they would do to all of the old songs they had been playing! I think this is a little look at what we might expect at our shows coming up in their next tour. But like I have been saying for awhile now...I believe they will be taking the 6 months off to get back into the studio and record more! Though I think they will take next summer 2012 and actually do the make-up tour for us guys here in the US! I think we will hear some of their new songs then but I don't think it will get released till the end of the year or possibly 2013. But we will all just have to wait and see! Here is the fan video of 'Fans'
And here is the setlist ! Sorry I do not have the time to flip it or I would! maybe later!
I hope the fans enjoyed this set because I know I would have loved it!
Well all in all I think the fans were treated to a great show! When Kings of Leon returns it should be with some new songs and a tuely refreshed attitude. I just hope we have the money to be able to visit all the shows we would have this year with our tour pass! I am hoping for a new job or to win the lottery! Until then I will just have to work at the job I have and hope for a miracle.
