Kings Ov Leon

‘Kings_Ov_Leon’ have been rocking out the most prestigious theatres, festivals and music venues since the start of 2009 with their undeniably breathtaking show! __

The scale, energy and charisma of their performances leaving audiences across Europe sure they’ve seen the Kings Of Leon themselves! The Kings_Ov_Leon take you on an absolutely epic, exhilarating journey playing your favourite KOL tracks from the first release “The Holy Roller Novocaine” through to the incredible number one album “Come Around Sundown”, all with unprecedented accuracy __

It’s this meticulous attention to detail; visually and audibly, that’s earned them rave reviews from press, critics and audiences alike. Hearing really is believing! But the uncanny resemblance doesn’t end there! Like the Followills there’s brotherly chemistry between lead guitarist Mark Eyden (Matthew Followill) and Dan Eyden (Jared Followill), the unmistakeable voice of Caleb bellowing eerily from Liam Coffey and the juxtaposed pounding rhythm and sweet harmonies of the bands ‘Nathan‘, Ant Wheeler.

All the guys have their own long history of professional success. In 1999, as a young teenager, Mark was signed to record label giants Polydor after winning BBC1s ‘Get Your Act Together’ in the band ’Marlo’ with what was the biggest ever national phone vote. He went on to tour extensively including a performance in front of 50,000 fans at ‘Party in the Park’ and had a charting single release.

Ant drummed professionally for numerous bands including the Towers of London and Wilkento. Dan, the youngest of the band at 21, fronted ‘Perfect Confusion’ and is a prolific song writer in his own right. Liam is the most recent to join the band. He has a long history of live performance in both original and covers bands including the epic ‘No Quarter’. He’s completed the line up and brought along with him a truly charismatic and authentic edge!

The Kings Ov Leon’s dogged determination to push the boundaries of what you’d expect of a tribute band sees them return to venues time after time. They’ve played literally hundreds of gigs and been championed by Signal Radio, XFM, The Stage and even the Kings Of Leon!

Notable venues include Tribfest – Europe’s biggest tribute festival, Marvellous Festival, a huge O2 Academy headline tour and the Ministry of Sound. The Kings Ov Leon carry a full professional PA system and lighting rig. Naturally all the guitars, drums, cymbals, amps and pedals are identical to their counterparts! How close can a tribute band get? The name says it all!

University of West of Scotland revamp set to rejuvenate Paisley

The University of the West of Scotland has a £250 million plan to revamp all of its campuses to attract more students and boost its international reputation.

It could transform the former mill town, famous for creating the Paisley pattern and home town to actor David Tennant and former banker Fred Goodwin, into a student-heavy campus town.

The latest step in the plan is a £13.6m student residence complex to be built in the heart of the town on the site of a former car park.

UWS changed its name from Paisley University last year, making it the newest higher education name in Scotland.

Work on the 340-bedroom complex begins in March and includes en-suite bathrooms, communal living and kitchen spaces, management suites, lounges and laundry facilities.

A further £4.6m project will refurbish 160 University-owned flats at George Street and Lady Lane in the town.

It’s hoped the new facilities will help attract increasing numbers of students to the town for entry in 2012.

The overall project also includes a new £70m campus at Ayr and will see classroom and IT upgrades across all four campuses to attract quality applicants.

Professor Seamus McDaid, university principal, said: “The development is crucial to our ambitions to attract and retain more students and is part of the wider investment programme to improve the quality of our estate across all four campuses.

“It will increase the enormous contribution that the university makes to the local economy, greatly enhancing the centre of Paisley and bringing long-term benefits to the town.”

Renfrewshire’s Provost Celia Lawson said the town held a reception each year to welcome overseas students.

A report by Spanish bank, Santander, last week found overseas students contribute £15m annually to local economies near universities, outwith fees.
