Kings Of Leon - Kings Of Leon Honour Dunn At London Show

Kings Of Leon paid tribute to Ryan Dunn during their show in London's Hyde Park on Wednesday night (22Jun11), dedicating their hit track Use Somebody to the tragic Jackass star.
Dunn and a passenger, Zachary Hartwell, were both killed when the daredevil crashed his Porsche in Pennsylvania early on Monday (20Jun11).
The news shocked the rockers, who became friends with the star last year (10), and they honoured Dunn during their concert in the U.K. capital.
Treating the Hyde Park crowd to a massive 26-song set, the gig took a sombre turn before the band's penultimate song, Use Somebody, as frontman Caleb Followill remembered their pal.
He asked the audience to toast "a friend of ours who's passed away", adding: "This is for Ryan".
Guitarist Jared Followill overcame a severe bout of influenza to perform at the gig as planned.
