Somebody alert the nation’s pigeons – dates have just been announced for Kings Of Leon‘s mammoth 2011 UK stadium tour.
Coventry, Ricoh Arena – May 30
Sunderland, Stadium of Light – June 17
Manchester, Lancashire County Cricket Ground – 19
London, Hyde Park – 22
Edinburgh, Murrayfield Stadium – 26
Tickets go on sale on Wednesday (November 3) at 9am. One thing to note: the band will be in the country for Glastonbury weekend. Could they be in the frame as headliners? Or (the more likely option) will they do Hard Rock Calling instead?
Anyway, with ‘Come Around Sundown’ currently at Number One, having broken digital sales records, it’s a good time to look ahead to those giant summer shows.
Which songs would you want to see on the ultimate Kings Of Leon setlist? Loads from the new album? More stuff from the early records? Just ‘The Bucket’ played over and over again on a loop..?
