Kings of Leon are planning to re-tool their live show for the forthcoming tour in support of their WALLS album. Speaking with Billboard, frontman Caleb Followill said, “We're not going to be floating on a stage like Kanye or anything like that, but we're going to be doing some cool [stuff] and we're going to be breaking the show up into parts and doing things that are hopefully going to have people leaving saying that was the best show they've ever been to."

Bassist Jared Followill added that a big stage show “feels almost necessary,” given current expectations. “It's just the world we live in,” he said. “Eventually that bubble will pop and we'll be able to just go out and play with real simple lights and just be us out there, but right now it feels like to keep people's interest and keep 'em off their phones you have to give them something on stage that keeps them interested. I love watching rock bands, always have, but the most impressed I've ever been at shows are the ones with awesome visuals.... It doesn't take the place of the music and you can't rely on it, but if you can add it to a good musical show it takes it to another level."

Kings of Leon’s WALLS tour kicks off on January 12 in National Harbor, Maryland.
