Kings of Leon, as Caleb said during the band’s Coachella 2011 set, are sick of their new songs.
Caleb repeated that sentiment in a recent interview with HitFix. The interview, which begins with a description of a couple scenes in the Talihina Sky documentary, ends with the following quotes…
“We’re trying to focus on getting a lot of the old music into [the setlist],” he says. “The last few shows we played, we took some risks.” The band had dragged out some tracks that they hadn’t performed in “five or six years” and “out of the 15,000 people in the crowd, only a 1,000 went ‘Yeah!’”“It’s like, f*ck, that’s good for us, because those are the people who have been coming to our shows for years, who are hoping to play those songs again. We’re gonna play those, and saving the hits for the very last of the set. It’s not like fans are gonna f*cking leave before they hear them, y’know?”
Now I’m even more excited to see them on August 26th. To see the dates from Kings of Leon’s summer 2011 tour, click here.
