Kings of Leon to Play The New Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino August 19

After two sold out shows in the original Joint, Kings of Leon will return to Vegas to rock the brand new Joint on August 19. Joining them this time around will be the loud, fast and melodic rock of The Whigs.

Following their epic sold-out performance at the legendary Madison Square Garden in New York City on January 29th and a highly successful spring arena tour, Kings of Leon continue to deliver incredible performances to sold-out crowds. They also recently performed on the MTV Movie Awards as one of only two artists asked, the other being Eminem. Kings of Leon thrive as one of the most popular artists to hit the music scene in recent years.

Nominated for three Grammy Awards (Best Rock Album, Best Rock Song, Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals), Kings of Leon have seen their latest release Only By The Night (RCA) take them to new levels, having sold almost four-million units worldwide. Their infectious single “Sex On Fire” was #1 on the Billboard “Modern Rock” chart for nine weeks. “Use Somebody,” the album’s second single, stayed at number one on the charts for three weeks straight. The video has been named “Buzzworthy” by MTV and has had nearly six million views on YouTube to date.

Only By The Night was released on September 23, 2008 and debuted in the top five on the Billboard top 200 and #1 at the iTunes store. The band has since performed on Saturday Night Live and Late Night with David Letterman. The band appeared on the cover of Spin magazine’s October issue, and was on the cover of Q magazine’s December issue in the UK, in which they received “Record of the Year” honors.
