Kings of Leon

Story by Jack Foley

KINGS of Leon have announced their biggest UK show in London’s Hyde Park this summer.

The concert will take place on Wednesday, June 30, and tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday, February 19.

The Nashville rockers – who recently won record of the year at the Grammy Awards for single Use Somebody, are currently completing work on their fifth, as yet-untitled album.

The eagerly anticipated LP will be the follow-up to Only By The Night, which has now sold more than six million copies worldwide.

Commenting on the London date, bass player Jared Followill told the BBC’s Newsbeat website: “It’s a great honour to be playing Hyde Park. To be put in the same category as the groups that have played before us is just unbelievable.”
