Published Jul 26, 2013Arena-friendly Southern rockers Kings of Leon will give their upcoming Mechanical Bull LP an extra push via a live concert stream directed by comedian/musician Fred Armisen.
The Associated Press reports that the former SNL star will sit behind the lens for the group's upcoming "American Express Unstaged" performance on August 9 at the Shepherd's Bush Empire in London. The concert will be streamed via YouTube and Vevo.
