"We're all big fans of Band of Horses and have tried to get them for every tour, but it hasn't worked out until now," Kings of Leon's Nathan Followill tells Spinner. "They are really sweet guys and we can't wait to turn them into alcoholics."
After suffering a minor setback last summer when pigeons pooped on their parade, Kings of Leon have continued to prove themselves worthy of their throne. Earlier this month, they pulled off another successful coup, storming the main stage headlining slot at Coachella which, Followill says, was "a blast. The crowd was a little sunburned but other than that it was a great night. Hydrate, people!"
Talking of hydration, Followill and his fellow band of brothers aren't kidding when they say they plan to drive Band of Horses to drink. This summer's tour with both bands is a two-month outing, which leaves all too much time for trouble. Not that Kings of Leon are rock's bad boys, per se. "We always try to play a local golf course or fly fish to keep things somewhat normal," admits Followill. "If that doesn't work, we try to turn the opening band in alcoholics at local bars."
Looks like this could very well be the rock 'n' roll tour of the summer. The potential debauchery kicks off on July 25 in Orange Beach, Ala., and wraps up in Seattle, Wash., on Sept. 12, just in time for last call.
