The happy twosome was accompanied by entrepreneur Douglas Chabbott and another cute couple, supermodel Karlie Kloss and St. Louis Rams Quarterback Sam Bradford. (Rams Wide Receiver Danny Amendola was also in attendance!)

“It was frigid outside,” a concertgoer tells “But everyone was having a great time chowing down on pizza and burgers. When The Black Keys and Swedish House Mafia performed, both couples really let loose and started dancing.”

Kings of Leon Cancel US Tour

Kings of Leon has pulled the plug on their U.S. tour.

“We are so sorry to say Kings of Leon are canceling their entire US tour due to Caleb Followill suffering from vocal issues and exhaustion,” a rep for the band told “The band is devastated, but in order to give their fans the shows they deserve, they need to take this break.”

“Unfortunately, the US dates cannot be rescheduled due to the band’s international tour schedule. Tickets will be refunded at point of purchase. Tickets purchased online or via phones will be automatically refunded. The band will resume touring in Canada at the Rogers Center in Vancouver, BC, on September 28th. That show was originally schedule for September 14th,” the rep concluded.

“Utterly depressed. It’s completely out of my hands. Family has to come 1st. If bass solos & backing vocals were more popular, I’d be there,” bassist Jared Followill wrote on his Twitter account.

“Thanks to all my friends, family, & fans. I’m not going to stop working. I’m going to spend time writing songs and looking to the future,” Jared added.
