Kings of Leon prepares for 1st show since injury

NEW YORK - A brotherly reunion is coming to the City of Brotherly Love: Family band Kings of Leon will play its first show Sunday in Philadelphia since drummer Nathan Followill injured his ribs.

The group will headline the second night of the "Budweiser Made In America" festival on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway.

Kanye West and Steve Aoki will perform on the first night of the two-day festival over Labor Day weekend.

Kings of Leon lead singer Caleb Followill said in an interview Friday that his younger brother is "doing good" since he broke his ribs after the band's tour bus driver was forced to stop short when a pedestrian crossed the street in front of the vehicle.

"He has this protective gear that he's wearing that's there to help him," Caleb said. "(On Thursday), we went in (to rehearsal) and we kind of loosened up a little bit, played five or six songs. (On Friday), we went in and played more, but by the end of it he was definitely tired."

The band includes youngest brother Jared Followill, who plays bass, and cousin Matthew Followill, who plays guitar. They cancelled two weeks of shows after the Aug. 9 incident and were set to mark a comeback on Thursday, but decided to postpone more shows.
