The first time I've heard Kings Of Leon I was, I think, 14 or 15 years old. I remember liking that song (which probably was Use Somebody or Sex on Fire) so much, that I just had to know more about them. I've just fallen in love with them more and more with each song I've listened to and this is probably the one band which stuck with me through the years when my music taste was changing very often.
I love many bands or singers, but the fact that KOL stayed with me for years, is even more special. In fact, some of my fondest memories happened while their songs were playing and their songs always give the warmest feelings. The thing is since I'm living in Lithuania and someone really big coming to play to our country or at least one near us, is a big deal as it doesn't happen too often.
So every time I thought to myself that I would absolutely love to hear this magical sound live and being able to hear his sexy voice, the thought of this staying just a dream followed immediately. I can't really explain why because I actually saw Lana Del Rey and Depeche Mode which I love dearly but with KOL this always seemed impossible. This is why last night was even more special, so many more times special. It was impossible to contain our excitement when we saw them come up on that huge stage and when we heard the first sounds of the guitars and then his voice echoed through the stadium, aaaah, I just got chills even writing this. It's just a strange feeling when you are feeling so many emotions that you can barely do a thing. I was so happy, I nearly cried several times but it was too many feelings at once to me that I just kept smiling the biggest smile I can do and my throat was just one big knot the whole time. I still can't fully comprehend that these songs which are now playing in my room (of course) were the ones I've heard live yesterday and I sang my heart out to them. When they played Closer or Pyro, it really felt like the most beautiful dream from which I would never want to wake up. At that time, I loved my life so so much.
We drove to another country, we came back on a very early morning when the sun was already up, I've slept for less than 5 hours and then I went to work feeling slightly lightheaded and yet I still felt very content.
My dream came true. My biggest dream of seeing my favorite band in the whole word live has come true and man, that's an incredibly warm feeling inside knowing this that these memories will stay with me forever.
