    I have seen the Kings 12 times within the past 3 years. They never fail to impress me. While some would say it is uninsipired, I beg to differ. Their live show, though they may not seem enthusiastic, it is just that they don't feel the need to jump around in order to compinsate for anything. They aren't much for talking either. Come on, what can you expect. They are southern boys?...

    I have seen them a few times in small clubs in Austin, some good others not so good. But I can say they were one of the highlights of this years Austin City Limits Festival. They were full of energy, not going "ape shit" or anything, but really into the whole scene, they were actually cut off so the nect act could go on.

    Im excited to them them!

    They were actually the second band I ever saw live. Pretty bad way to start the list...

    The one good thing about this is the chicks it's going to attract.

    Oh well...I'm counting on being able to get an up-close spot for their set.
    Wow.

    no way. Neon Trees are on a whole level of sheit all on their own. KOL actually did something good........ once upon a time..... but at least they once had something.

    saw them back in '07.. it wasn't bad, but it wasn't great. their lackluster material as of late, coupled with their growing arrogant douchebaggery makes it clear to me the show worth watching will be the chemical brothers.

    Anyone that has sat through their pathetic shows 12x deserves what they get. I've also been forced to sit through them a few times, and they plain and simple SUCK IT live!!!! And all the lights and mascara won't mask horrible uninspired music and lyrics. A brutal headliner on every level. KOL is even a worse choice than Kanye. I be at another Coachella, but I 'll be far, far away from this bro fest. RUN....

    to anyone who hates them.......watch this clip

    then watch this old clip

    http://www.spike.com/video/bucket-kings-of-leon/2658587

    when they were good, nobody was listening to them

    but they have paid their dues even though I think they are boring as fuck live

    i watched them for the 1st time at coachella in '07 and it was really cool. i still like their 1st 3 albums alot. but....the last 2 albums are pretty hard to defend. i watched them at a kroq show in 2009 & they played stuff off their hit album & it was hollow to me. but it didn't make me hate the albums i used to like, which is more than i can say about gorillaz from last year. that crapfest performance retroactively ruined my enjoyment of their albums for me. haven't listened to gorillaz since.

    either way, i won't watch kol at coachella

    'sex on fire' at coachella..WTF

    If they promise to only play songs From Y&YMH, Aha Shake, and Because of the times, I'll be there.....Unless their is a conflict with The Chemical Brothers.

    In which case I'll be at the Chemical Bros set dancing and having my mind blown by their music and visuals.
