Apologise For Reading Festival 2009 Performance by Kings of Leon

Caleb Followill on behalf of his band apologized for the much much-criticized headline performance at Reading Festival in 2009.

The band slammed the Reading crowd on Twitter following the show, while many fans hit out at the four-piece online.

When the band finished the tour in 2009, after few weeks he came to terms with it:

"I wanted to do some interviews and apologies for my attitude".

"We took it out on the crowd, me in particular".

"At the end of the day it was probably our fault."
