The four members of the Followill family who comprise chart-topping Southern hipsters Kings of Leon headline at the iTunes Festival. They've proved they can rock the pants off a huge crowd with their blend of filthy, lean swamp rock – but they're also prone to stadium-rock bloat and excess, as demonstrated on their last album, 2010's disappointing 'Come Around Sundown'. Things took a turn for the worse on their last US tour, when the lead singer Caleb Followill was so drunk on stage he had to stumble off to vomit in the middle of the set, and didn't come back on. Fortunately, Kings Of Leon are back with a new album, 'Mechanical Bull' (due later this year), and sound revitalised after their hiatus. They're supported tonight by Arizona's premier commercial emo-core combo Jimmy Eat World, belting out new material from 'Damage', their eighth album, and the classics: 'Bleed American', 'Pain' and, of course, 'The Middle'.
