Story by Jack Foley

KINGS of Leon have announced they will return to the UK for a pair of huge Arena shows in June 2009.

Tickets for the concerts at London’s O2 Arena and Manchester Evening News Arena will go on sale at 9am on Friday, November 14, with all tickets priced at £32.50, plus booking fees.

The band will play London’s O2 on Monday, June 15, and then head up to Manchester on Monday, June 22, 2009.

In addition, Kings of Leon release their new single, Use Somebody, on December 8, through Hand Me Down/Columbia Records. The song is the second single to be taken from their massively acclaimed No.1 album Only By The Night and follows the monumental success of their UK No.1 single Sex On Fire.

The album is already certified double platinum (600k+) in the UK after just a few short weeks in store.

They return to the UK next month for a fully sold out, month-long arena tour in December which culminates at London’s Wembley Arena on December 22.
