More news about Kings of Leon? They haven’t been given this much media attention since 2009!
None other than Gov. Stitt himself announced yesterday that an award-winning band would be performing at the grand opening of our newest park. Look at how proud he is:

Hold that drum high, governor! You’re doing great!
Frankly, I assumed they were going to haul Toby Keith’s ass out for a rousing rendition of “I love this park.” What a surprise that, instead, we are being given the band that was named after a street in downtown OKC. Renderings of the concert makes it look like it’s going to be a fun time:
You heard correctly: @KingsOfLeon will be giving a free concert to celebrate the grand opening of @ScissortailPark on Friday, September 27. Details about the concert and the park are on #VeloCityOKChttps://t.co/IOioZgzAqf pic.twitter.com/xMdaYVO0dz

Scissortail Park actually looks like it’s going to be a neat facility, from what I’ve seen. A 70-acre park in the heart of downtown sounds like a great place for young professionals to roam on Limes, looking for a mate. I can practically see it already.
The park will be opening September 27 at 5 p.m., following the concert
Reception of the announcement of the headliner was mixed, with Facebook Live holding some “great” takes.
My personal favorite, however, was an unnecessary low-blow from out of left field.
As someone who once spent actual money to see Nickelback, I’m both offended and aware of the shame I should feel.
This concert should be pretty fun, in all honesty. We could’ve ended up with so much worse of a concert headliner, but thankfully Garth is busy that weekend.
I’ll see y’all there this September.
Uncle Lenny is new.
