Kings of Leon New Release

The Kings of Leon have gained momentum in the US – both with fan base and airplay.  While wildly successful in the UK for several years, the quartet has only recently enjoyed mainstream success in the United States, with their “Only By The Night” release and subsequent tour – which is currently in the UK.

With opening acts such as The Black Keys, Built to Spill and the Features, the band has gone from an underground alternative “buzz” to a full-scale headliner. However, with the Kings of Leon having a slated October release of “Come Around Sundown”, and the first single “Radioactive” already receiving airplay, there is a divide.  Old-school fans of the Kings of Leon feel the band has deviated from it’s gritty, unique sound, in favor of become more mainstream and “marketable”.  The newer fan base – and critics alike – feel the band is maturing.  What are your thoughts?  A look at the old, and a look at the new:

There is no doubt that the Kings of Leon will return to the US in the spring/summer of 2011 in support of the new release.  The question is, however, will the concert goers be new, old or a mix of the two.  Stay tuned to TicketSeating for the latest updates on an upcoming Kings of Leon tour.

NFL Week Two Shockers

There were some shockers and some big upsets in week two of the 2010 NFL season.  Virtually every fan was, at some point, on the edge of their seats during Sunday’s games.

For fans, the overtime play between the Texans and the Redskins was stressful, to say the least. While the Redskins’ Donovan McNabb threw for 426 yards and a touchdown, the Texans’ Matt Schaub threw for a franchise record 497 yards. More interesting, though, is that this match-up was only the fifth time in NFL history featuring two 400+ yard passers.  In the end, it was Neil Rackers’ 35-yard field goal with 3:24 left in overtime, that gave the Houston Texans the win.
