Kings of Leon in Cape Town: Concert and road-closure info
The multi-award-winning band was scheduled to make its Cape Town debut in April, but the highly anticipated appearance was postponed after hunky drummer Nathan Followill’s bicep surgery.
Now they’re back, stronger and sexier than ever and ready to rock your socks off! With a mind-blowing set list that includes the anthems Sex on Fire and Use Somebody, these gorgeous lads will prove that they are more than worth the wait.
Setting the tone for this unbelievable evening are local opening acts Shadowclub, The Black Hotels and Die Heuwels Fantasties. It’s a gathering of rock royalty never seen before!
To whet your musical appetite is this video of the Kings of Leon concert in Florida:
