With this show I am celebrating the 50th episode with a band that I have been dying to feature for quite some time. I have not seen many recordings of Kings of Leon on the net, but the quality of this recording made it a shoo-in for this milestone podcast. I’m guessing most listeners of this podcast have heard of Kings of Leon by now as their mainstream exposure has sharply increased within the last year. It is only on their current tour that they have been headlining larger venues in the US, while they have been playing in front of huge audiences in the UK for the past several years. A strange fact when you consider their hometown of Nashville, TN. It was probably inevitable that their days of smaller venues wouldn’t last, so feel very lucky if you got to see them. I think you will agree that they were destined for the big stage after hearing this recording of their June 27th, 2009 concert in the 17,000 capacity O2 World arena in Berlin.

The source for this show is only available in FLAC format so if would like to convert it to MP3 for your Ipod or other portable media player I recommend downloading a free program I developed called the Ultimate Live Music Audio Converter. This is the easiest way to convert FLAC or SHN files to MP3 and also has handy features like automatic tagging and updating of your Itunes library with converted files.
