Kings Of Leon - Kings Of Leon Return To The Stage At Stormy Made In America Festival

Thunderstorms couldn't keep Kings Of Leon from making their live comeback at the Made in America festival in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on Sunday night (31Aug14).

Fans attending Jay Z's annual Labor Day weekend event feared they'd have to miss out on sets by Tiesto and Kings of Leon after organisers halted proceedings on Sunday evening and evacuated the Benjamin Franklin Parkway festival site as extreme weather rolled in.

But after an hour-long pause, the gates re-opened and the event continued.

Kings of Leon drummer Nathan Followill, who broke his ribs in a tour bus crash at the beginning of August (14), was grateful - but sore after the show.

He took to and wrote, "Thank you Philly for taking my mind off of the pain. I will be hurting tonight & tomorrow but it was worth it. Thanks for sticking around."

The rocker later added, "Almost home & I can't cry myself 2 sleep fast enough. Thank heavens for 2 days off before the next show. Fractured ribs are no joke? I ache."

The band scrapped a series of dates to allow Followill time to recover from his crash injuries.

Meanwhile, the first Made in America festival in Los Angeles went off without many hitches with John Mayer, DJ Steve Aoki and Kanye West, who headlined Saturday's (30Aug14) festivities in Philadelphia, closing out the event on Sunday night.

Seven people were arrested at the Los Angeles event on Sunday and there were four felony arrests, including one for battery. Another 23 people were given alcohol citations, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

Twenty nine people were arrested at the festival on Saturday.
