Long live the Kings! The Kings of Leon return to San Diego on March 22 with an arena-ready rock show at Sleep Train Ampitheatre that promises to be truly epic -- and SoundDiego is giving you a chance to win tickets!
The alt-Southern rock band is a true family affair, consisting of three Followill brothers -- Nathan (drums), Caleb (vocals/guitar), Jared (bass) -- and their cousin Matthew Followill on guitar. The group formed in 1999 and started gaining momentum nationally after the release of its first two albums -- 2003's Youth & Young Manhood and 2004's Aha Shake Heartbreak -- and thanks to good ol' fashioned word-of-mouth.
By the time 2006's Because of the Times came out, the Kings of Leon were primed for the spotlight. The group got a taste of rock stardom with the hit single "On Call," but that was nothing compared to the global domination that was to follow with their next studio album, Only By the Night. Featuring the massive tracks "Sex on Fire" and "Use Somebody," the band blew up into bona fide worldwide
After taking a brief hiatus, the band is now back, better than ever and strengthening its stranglehold over rock music: The new album Mechanical Bull has taken off, with their new single, "Supersoaker," being played everywhere.
We were beyond thrilled when the Kings of Leon announced a stop in San Diego on their new national tour with indie-rock darlings Local Natives tapped as openers -- and now we're even more excited to give away an insanely comprehensive prize package!
One lucky winner will win FOUR VIP box seat tickets to the March 22 show, two VIP parking passes, wait service to the seats and access to the Cox VIP lounge before, during and after the show!
Stop drooling -- go ahead and enter to win already! Whatever you do, don't wait -- the contest ends soon. Long live the Kings!
