Experience the magic on screen

Catch the ‘Kings of Leon Live at O2’ rock concert on June 30 and July 1 at 8 pm on Big CBS Spark. ‘Kings of Leon’ has a background so exorbitant in rock mythology that it almost sounds made up.
The performance given by ‘Kings of Leon’ was so phenomenal that it was released a year later as a DVD — the band’s first. The ‘Live at O2’ concert consists of a 22-song set, selected from all four of the band's albums. The track list includes their super-hit songs like ‘Notion’, ‘Be Somebody’ and ‘Fans’.

The band's retro-chic look and blend of Southern boogie and gritty garage rock was a complete sell-out to over 18,000 fans who attended the concert at London’s O2 Arena.
