Roman Abramovich hires Kings Of Leon for PS300k for private bashDecember 31st, 2008 - 6:30 pm ICT by ANI
London, Dec 31 (ANI): American rock band Kings Of Leon performed at Russian billionaire Roman Abramovichs Christmas party on December 29 night.
Abramovich doled out 300,000 pounds to get the rockers to perform a one-hour set, and the Chelsea FC owner even missed out on the Blues 2-2 draw against Fulham at Craven Cottage on December 28 to watch the Followill clan.
Kings Of Leon are one of the biggest bands around at the moment and Roman is a big fan, the Sun quoted a partygoer as saying.
He had to pay a premium to get them to play the gig over Christmas because they were taking a well-earned break with their family after a very busy year, the partygoer added. (ANI)
