Dunn, who had become a friend to the band in the past year, was killed in a fatal car accident in Philadelphia in the early hours of Monday, 20 June.
Speaking to the crowd, NME reports that frontman Caleb Followill dedicated 'Use Somebody' to Dunn and led the crowd in raising their glasses to "a friend of ours." This echoed sentiments tweeted by brother Jared before the performance, saying he was "heartbroken" and "devastated" at the loss of the 34-year-old, whose memorial service also took place Wednesday.
The group's set marked the first of a string of sold-out stadium dates in the UK, with support coming from White Lies and modfather Paul Weller. Featuring hits from their five studio albums, they included fan favourites' 'Pistol of Fire' 'Knocked Up' and latest single 'The Immortals.' Kings of Leon once again take on Hyde Park Thursday evening (June 23), before heading to Edinburgh's Murrayfield Stadium (June 26).
