Kings of Leon announce one-off UK show for summer 2019 – with very special guests

They're off to Merseyside...

Kings of Leon have announced that they will return to the UK this summer for a one off show in Liverpool.

The rock giants will perform at Liverpool’s Sefton Park on August 30 as part of the Fusion Presents series – and they’re bringing an impressive supporting bill too.

Alongside a main supporting slot from Franz Ferdinand, fans can also expect performances from Echo & The Bunnymen, Circa Waves and Sam Fender.

Fusion Presents’ Damien Sanders said: “Liverpool is an iconic city, entrenched in music heritage and we’ve wanted to launch a new event for the last couple of years. The biggest challenge has been finding the right artist for the job. We’re over the moon that we were able to secure one of the world’s most successful rock bands to launch Fusion Presents and we cannot wait to see them perform in our new home, Sefton Park.”

Tickets will go on sale this Friday (March 8) priced at £54.50, while local residents with the post codes L8, L15L17 and L18 will be able to purchase half price tickets at £27.25.

While Liverpool marks their only UK show of the summer, Kings of Leon will also perform at Benicassim alongside the likes of The 1975, Franz Ferdinand, George Ezra, Jess Glynne and Blossoms.
