The Grammy-winning rockers of Kings of Leon meld a chameleon-like ability to shift styles and genres with a musically trained chameleon's virtuosic instrument-wielding. Lead vocalist Caleb Followill's earnest, ethereal singing finds backup on drums and bass from his brothers Nathan and Jared, and their cousin Matthew cows errant sound waves into complacency with air-shredding guitar. Backing its most recent album, Come Around Sundown, the band can draw on nearly 10 years of chart-climbing ear pleasers including "Use Somebody" and "Radioactive" in its quest for audience enjoyment. Opening act Band of Horses whets aural appetites with a delectable mélange of southern and alt rock. The open-air Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre Charlotte provides fitting enclosure for euphonic evenings, mingling ear-pleasing notes with cool night air and the distant cries of nocturnal vigilantes. Lawn chairs with seats 9 inches or lower can be toted along onto the lawn, and the venue offers chair rentals for $5 apiece.
