kings of Leon Unleash Foul-Mouthed Attack On Reading Crowd

September 2, 2009 by  


Kings Of Leon were so annoyed by the dull reception they recieved at this year’s Reading Festival, that frontman Caleb Followill unleashed a torrent of foul-mouth abuse on the crowd.

The band were headlining the event on Friday night (28th August), during which their performance was affected by sound problems and band weather according to reports.

Angered by the quiet reception the band received, Caleb was heard saying to audience members: “We know you’re sick of Kings of Leon. We’re f***ing sick of Kings of Leon too. But we get up here every night and I thank God for everything I’ve had.”

“So for all those who don’t give a f**k about us, I understand. But we’ve worked hard to be here. We’re the goddamn Kings of Leon, so f*** you.”

Reportedly Caleb and brother Jared Followill then smashed up their guitars before quitting the stage.

Still angered, the singer added on his Twitter page: “Reading? What the f***? Zero love for the kings. I know it was cold but holy s***, y’all were frozen. I can only hope Leeds is in better form.”
