If any moment epitomized the transcendent mood that filled Liberty Hall on Saturday night, it was when Sharon Jones led her Dap-Kings into Get Up and Get Out. Before they lit the fuse on it, Jones advised the sold-out, wall-to-wall crowd that this version of the song would not be like the recorded version. And it wasnt. Not even close.
Aside from one very unwelcome special effect, Kings of Leon's concert thoroughly gratified an audience of about 8,000 at the Sprint Center on Wednesday. A light dusting of artificial snow was dropped on fans near the stage during the icy song "Cold Desert." The stunt did not amuse Midwestern rock fans tormented by a long, harsh winter.
