Kings Of Leon conquered the Isle of Wight Festival 2011 with a brain blistering performance which had more energy than a solar flare.
Oozing Americana with dusty out of focus visuals, Caleb’s powerful vocals rocked the docks which finished with a vibrant display of fireworks.
With what was essentially a bare bones non-garnished set, the American super group plucked songs that flowed like tender meats at a banquet without the over indulgence.
‘Be Somebody’ and ‘On Call’ were narcotic-like anthems but ‘Sex Is On Fire’ was clearly the crowds drug of choice.
“We’re having a real good time up here, how about y’all?” Caleb asked during teh set which featured the likes of ‘Knocked Up’ too.
Well, Jenny from Surbiton who’s a first timer on the Island thought: “it’s a night I’ll never forget, I’ve seen them three times now and they were on top form tonight. Amazing!”
Isle of Wight Festival 2011 continues tomorrow with shows from Foo Fighters, Pulp and more.
