Kings Of Leon Live Under The Sun

Tuesday, June 9th, 2009

Concert in the Arena on Wednesday, September 9th

Mohegan Sun Arena will play host to one of the hottest bands around right now when Kings Of Leon perform live on Wednesday, September 9th at 7:30pm with special guest Glasvegas.

Tickets are $45.00 and go on sale Saturday, June 13th at 10:00am through Ticketmaster.  Ticketmaster customers may log on to ticketmaster.com, call Ticketmaster’s national toll free Charge by Phone number 1.800.745.3000; or visit any Ticketmaster outlet.  Tickets will also be available at the Mohegan Sun Box Office on Sunday, June 14th, subject to availability.

When Kings of Leon released their third album Because Of The Times in 2007, Entertainment Weekly called it their “crowning achievement,” while Rolling Stone wondered: “How good can the Kings of Leon get? They’ve already gone further than anybody could have guessed.”

“After three records and touring for five years straight, we knew what we were capable of,” says the band’s drummer Nathan. “We just had to put our money where our mouths were. We had to take it to the next level. You always want your next record to be better than your last.” Adds frontman and lyricist Caleb: “There’s never a time that we’ll make a record and won’t attempt to do something better than what came before.”

With its stunning melodies, ringing guitars, and razor-sharp grooves, Only By The Night delivers on the promise Kings of Leon have shown throughout their career. From the desolate atmospherics of the opening track “Closer”  to the emotional intensity of the closing ballad “Cold Desert,” Only By The Night is all heart from start to finish.

Glasvegas are a Scottish Alternative Rock band that formed in Glasgow in 2003. The band consists of James Allan (vocals, rhythm guitar), Rab Allan (lead guitar, backing vocals), Paul Donoghue (bass guitar, backing vocals) and Caroline McKay (drums).
