It was all about four kings this Christmas in Belfast as family band Kings of Leon blew away the Odyssey for the first time on Saturday night.
Tennessee brothers Caleb, Nathan and Jared, along with their cousin Matthew, rocked their way through the penultimate gig of their UK tour in the packed-out Belfast hot spot performing songs from all four of their albums.
The band started the show with the first two songs from their latest chart-topping album Only by the Night, Closer and Crawl.
Early hits like Molly’s Chambers, The Bucket and Four Kicks were blended in with last year’s big singles Fans and On Call and current favourites Sex on Fire and Use Somebody, giving the audience an insight into the diverse sounds of the band.
Judging by their performance it wasn’t hard to see why they have been crowned the Kings of new rock revelation.
