IT HAS now been a year already since American rock legends Kings of Leon came to Wrexham for an unforgettable May Bank Holiday weekend.

In a truly one-of-a-kind experience, north Wales residents got the opportunity to enjoy some of the band's biggest hits right on their doorstep.

The STok Cae Ras was bouncing for two consecutive gigs as Kings of Leon were joined on stage by former Stereophonics legend Kelly Jones' Far From Saints and local favourites Declan Swans.

The shows proved to be so popular that Kings of Leon released a special edition album in tribute to it earlier this month, which featured seven live recordings.

In the scorching sun last May, fans were treated to an unforgettable spectacle which will no doubt live long in the memory for all who attended.


In among the crowd on the Sunday were Wrexham AFC stars Paul Mullin and Elliot Lee.

Over 30,000 fans (across both nights) rocked out in the sun to some of Kings of Leon's biggest hits like 'Use Somebody', 'Sex on Fire' and 'Closer'.

The band was formed in Nashville, Tennessee in 1999 and consists of brothers Caleb, Nathan, and Jared Followill and their cousin Matthew Followill.

Since their debut album in 2003, the band has released eight LPs, collectively selling over 20 million albums and nearly 40 million singles worldwide.

Their latest album 'Can We Please Have Fun' came out earlier this month.

Following the visit, Kings of Leon drummer Nathan described Wrexham as a 'lovely city', adding that he hoped to return to watch a football match there someday.
