Late last month, after much exciting buildup, Tennessee-bred rock band Kings Of Leon played an epic, once-in-a-lifetime show at Ireland’s Slane Castle for our two lucky contest winners and 80,000 others. In use as a concert venue since 1981, the natural amphitheater has hosted the likes of U2 and The Rolling Stones, so it’s no surprise the guys were incredibly stoked to perform there, especially with legendary metal act Thin Lizzy as the opener. Kings Of Leon drummer Nathan Followill called it “the most memorable show of [their] career.”

For anyone who couldn’t be there (most of us), we now have the exclusive live footage, including a behind-the-scenes interview with Matt Pinfield in which the band of brothers (plus one cousin) discuss the castle’s history as a venue, their upcoming documentary and what their family means to them.
