Kings Of Leon have announced a headline show at Glasgow's Bellahouston Park on August 15, which is to be the band's only Scottish date this year.

The show is part of Glasgow Summer Sessions, a series of shows taking place at Bellahouston Park promoted by the company responsible for T In The Park, DF Concerts & Events. At present, the only other show announced is Eminem on August 20.

Tickets for the Kings Of Leon show will go on sale this Friday (April 19) at 9am from glasgowsummersessions.com.

Kings Of Leon bassist Jared Followill recently confirmed to NME that his band's new album will be out in September. Followill said: "I thought we were going to make a really mature album but I'm amazed how youthful it sounds. It's like a mix of 'Youth & Young Manhood' and 'Because Of The Times'."

Before the album is released, Kings of Leon will headline this summer's V festival. Taking place over the weekend of August 17-18 at Hylands Park, Chelmsford and Weston Park, Staffordshire, the two-day event will see the band take to the main stage along with Beyoncé – which will be her only European festival appearance this year.

They will also play shows in London, Manchester and Birmingham in June and July, staring at London's O2 Arena on June 12 and 13 before playing Manchester Arena on June 24 and 25. The tour then runs to Birmingham's LG Arena on July 9-10, before the band headline Tennent's Vital in Belfast on August 14.

Kings Of Leon also release a career spanning, six-disc boxset, which will include all five of their studio albums plus a 2009 live DVD recorded in London, on May 13.
