Fred Armisen to direct Kings of Leon live stream

NEW YORK (AP) — Fred Armisen will direct a live stream of an upcoming Kings of Leon concert for the digital series “American Express Unstaged.”

The Nashville, Tenn., band’s Aug. 9 concert at London’s Shepherd’s Bush will be webcast globally on Vevo and YouTube, a spokesman for American Express told The Associated Press.

Armisen, who left “Saturday Night Live” earlier this year, is also a drummer and has previously directed music videos.

It’s the 13th streamed concert for “Unstaged,” which pairs top music acts with notable directors. The last installment was a stream for Vampire Weekend directed by Steve Buscemi.

Kings of Leon will release their sixth album, “Mechanical Bull,” on Sept. 24.
