Kings of Leon to headline New Year’s Eve bash in downtown Nashville

New Year's Eve Bash on Broadway

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Kings of Leon will headline the annual “Bash on Broadway” this New Year’s Eve in downtown Nashville.

“I can think of no place I’d rather play New Year’s Eve than at home with 100,000 of my closest friends,” said drummer Nathan Followill.

“The Kings’ following internationally is beyond impressive. No doubt they are one of the biggest rock bands in the world right now,” Butch Spyridon, president and CEO of the NCVC added.

He continued, “Not only are they great musicians, but they love Nashville and are great ambassadors for us. We are honored to have them play their hometown and know it takes our event to a new level in terms of reach and expectations.”

Since its inception in 2007, the Jack Daniel’s Bash on Broadway has consistently grown in size and attendance.

Officials said they are planning for 150,000 fans to attend the annual event.

Last year’s bash was televised nationally as part of ABC’s Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve international broadcast.

Kings of Leon was inducted into the Music City Walk of Fame and received the Music City Ambassador Award from Mayor Karl Dean in 2012 for bringing international attention to Nashville’s diverse music scene.

The band got their start in Nashville by playing open mic nights, songwriters’ nights and performing at locally at places such as the Bluebird Cafe.
