The ultimate UK tribute ‘Kings Ov Leon’ have been rocking out the most prestigious theatres, festivals and music venues since the start of 2009 with their undeniably breath-taking show! The scale, energy and charisma of their performances leaving audiences across Europe sure they’ve seen the Kings Of Leon themselves!
The Kings Ov Leon take you on an absolutely epic, exhilarating journey playing your favourite KOL tracks from the first release "The Holy Roller Novocaine" through to the incredible number one album "Mechanical Bull", all with unprecedented accuracy! This meticulous attention to detail; visually and audibly, has earned them rave reviews from press, critics and audiences alike.
But the uncanny resemblance doesn’t end there! Like the Followills there’s brotherly chemistry between lead guitarist Mark Eyden (Matthew Followill) and Dan Eyden (Jared Followill), the unmistakeable voice of Caleb bellowing eerily from Liam Coffey and the pounding rhythms and sweet harmonies of the bands ‘Nathan‘, Ant Wheeler.
All the guys have their own long history of professional success. In 1999, as a young teenager, Mark was signed to record label giants Polydor after winning BBC1s ‘Get Your Act Together’ in the band ’Marlo’ with what was the biggest ever national phone vote. He went on to tour extensively including a performance in front of 50,000 fans at ‘Party in the Park’ and had a charting single release.
Liam is the most recent to join the band completing the line up with a truly charismatic and authentic edge! He is also getting rave reviews in his original blues/rock band ‘Thunderous Jones‘ signed to Soundhub Records in which he also performs with Mark.
Ant drummed professionally for numerous bands including the Towers of London and Wilkento and Dan, the youngest of the band at 24, fronted ‘Perfect Confusion’ and is a prolific song writer in his own right.
The Kings Ov Leon’s determination to push the boundaries of what you’d expect of a tribute band sees them return to venues time after time. They’ve played literally hundreds of gigs and been championed by Signal Radio, XFM, The Stage and even the Kings Of Leon! Notable venues include Chris Evens’ ‘Carfest‘, Tribfest - Europe’s biggest tribute festival, Marvellous Festival, a huge O2 Academy headline tour and the Ministry of Sound.
Naturally all the guitars, drums, cymbals, amps and pedals are identical to their counterparts!
How close can a tribute band get? The name says it all!
REVIEW FROM BIG FOOT EVENTS SHOWCASE
"Enter a four-piece live band, comprising a ballsy singing bass player, rhythm and lead guitarists with attitude and a drummer who seems to find all the fills and then some. Kings ov Leon fills stadiums at festivals right across Europe and these guys are my current favourite tribute band."
