In case you missed it, or slept through it in my case, here's the video from Kings of Leon's performance on the Today Show. 20,000 people applied for fan passes for this show which is more than any other performance on Today. Ever. Meredith Vieira even compared them to U2. I think its safe to say that KOL have officially blown up. The Followill boys will begin a 30 date U.S. arena tour on August 9th. Close midwest dates will be in Milwaukee (Sept. 26), Kansas City (Oct. 13th), and Minneapolis (Sept. 28th).
