Rumor of a Kings of Leon makeup tour

Well we are still waiting on the folks at MTV to let us know what they are going to do if anything for the loss of our King of Leon tour pass! (road to slane castle 2nd place prize we won)  I hope there is money involved but I doubt it!

The fulfillment manger for our prize (Sasha) did send me an email yesterday stating that she just wanted to touch base. Sasha explained how that the people from MTV were reaching out to the band to see what their plans were and that rumor has it that kol is planning a makeup tour in the U.S.! Of course, this is just a rumor at this point!  She also said, they (the band) were going through some internal struggles so who knows what that means! I personally think it will all be ok!  I have a twin brother and we say and do things to each other that would freak most people out! But then the next minute we are laughing and all is ok so I do know how brothers fight and that the people around them can make a whole lot out of nothing!

I hope they do get their troubles worked out and come back refreshed in Canada. The only thing that worries me is that they already have a lot of shows lined up so I don't want them to add the whole US makeup tour too soon and end up in the very same place they are now!

The way Sasha was talking, MTV would give us another tour pass but what they don't realize is that we already spent the money we had saved! We are both working poor people who both are not even working in our fields due to the economy! I used to make 4 times what I make now and our savings was all put into the trip to Colorado, which we would'nt have gone on the trip if not for winning the tour pass! Now we are basically broke and when you get paid what we do it is really hard to save anything! I doubt if we could afford a tour pass even if it were 2 years out.

Kings of Leon at Red Rocks 8-31-2011

Well after a long drive (about 24hrs) we finally made it to Denver! The drive here was so amazing as I have never been to Denver so seeing the Mountains as you get closer was such a gift! I was really wanting to see some road runners as I have always heard they were out here but sadly we only saw one and it was on the side of the road and let's just say it won't be running anymore!
   Our first day in Denver we decided to head out to Red Rocks since that was the main reason we had come out here! Driving into Red Rocks was so beautiful but sad at the same time as it reminded me of losing the tour pass to KOL and what a great show would would not be seeing. I decided to not let that keep me down so the first thing I did was park (outside of the hole that you drive through to get to the top of the red rocks amphitheater) and I climbed up a hill and planked on top of a big rock!  -continues below pictures-

So we spent some time enjoying the beauty of Red Rocks, took some funny pics and thought a little more of what it would have been like to see our favorite 2 bands (Kings of Leon and Band of Horses) then we headed back to the hotel to plan our next days adventure.
