Kings Of Leon have announced details of a series of huge headline outdoor shows for 2011 that will see one of the country’s most adored bands perform in five UK cities next summer, including a return to London’s Hyde Park – the scene of last year’s triumphant headline performance to 65,000 fans. Tickets for the shows including dates in Coventry, Sunderland and Manchester go on sale on Wednesday, November 3, 2010 at 9am.
Their highly acclaimed fifth album ‘Come Around Sundown‘ became their third consecutive album to debut at #1 when it topped the UK album charts last week on release, claiming both the biggest week one sales of the year and the biggest ever first week digital sales along the way.
Like last year’s Hyde Park show, their forthcoming brace of December arena shows sold out in seconds and these new shows are set to be one of the highlights of next year’s live calendar. The dates are as follows:
30 – Coventry – Ricoh Arena
17 – Sunderland – Stadium of Light
19 – Manchester – Lancashire County Cricket Ground
22 – London – Hyde Park
26 – Edinburgh – Murrayfield Stadium
