Watch: Kings of Leon rock 80,000 people at Slane Castle

So good was their performance and the atmosphere last night that one member of Kings of Leon says it was the most memorable show of his career as 80,000 descended on the tiny Meath village for another rock-tastic day.

TENNESSEE ROCKERS KINGS of Leon played to a packed Slane Castle yesterday as 80,000 music lovers and revellers descended on the tiny Meath village.

Celebrating 30 years of Slane concerts and the 60th birthday of the castle owner Henry Mountcharles, the famous natural amphitheatre welcomed indie bands such Elbow, White Lies and The Whigs.

The main act took the stage just after 9pm and played all their major hits as well as songs from the new album.

The biggest roar was saved for the smash hit ‘Sex on Fire’ which caused quite a stir judging by the clips popping up on YouTube this afternoon:

So good was the concert and the crowd that Nathan Followill last night tweeted that it was “the most memorable show of my career”.
