Well it looks like we will never get our prize from Kings of Leon , MTV , Superglued , or Poptolife (the marketing and promotion people who handled the prize distribution)!
We are the winners of a contest called Road to Slane Castle a contest with the top prize being an all expense paid trip to Ireland to see Kings of Leon play live and a 2nd place prize being a tour pass to all 30 KOL shows here in the U.S., along with other prizes of band equipment!
After several emails to my contact with poptolife, they just tell me that they are waiting for Kings of Leon to ad another U.S. tour! I am sorry, but these people could have done something for all that we lost due to the tour being cancelled!
We are a working poor couple, who save very hard for the one thing we both enjoy and that is seeing Kings of Leon in concert! We realize that they cannot make Kings of Leon ad another tour until the boys are ready but they could at least help us with the cost of all our hotels and other money we spent in anticipation the tour pass! We pre-paid for 14 hotel rooms (which means no refund) only because we were able to get Candlewood Suites to give us a $30 dollar a night break on each stay!
