A concert brings fans and bands face to face in a happier fashion than tour-bus fender benders or souvenir-hunting home invasions. Get some quality face time with beloved music makers with today's GrouponLive deal: for $19, you get a ticket in sections 11, 12, 16, or 17 to see Kings of Leon at 1-800-ASK-GARY Amphitheatre at the Florida State Fairgrounds on Tuesday, August 2, at 7 p.m. (a $24.50 value before fees, or up to a $39.50 value online, including all ticketing fees). Seats will be assigned on a first-purchased, first-served basis. Doors open at 6 p.m., and attendees who wish to sit together must redeem their Groupons together.
As Grammy-winning rockers, Kings of Leon melds 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 their 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 their quest for audience enjoyment. Opening act Band of Horses whets aural appetites with a delectable mélange of southern and alt rock. The open-air 1-800-ASK-GARY Amphitheatre at the Florida State Fairgrounds provides fitting enclosure for euphonic evenings, mingling ear-pleasing notes with cool night air, delicate moonbeams, and the distant cries of nocturnal vigilantes.
