Kings of Leon performed ‘Reverend’ and ‘Waste a Moment’ on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night (Nov 3).
Taken from their latest album ‘Walls’, the band have previously performed ‘Waste a Moment’ on The Tonight Show, later debuted ‘Around the World’ on Later … With Jools Hooland.
‘WALLS’ is Kings Of Leon’s first US number one album, shifting 77,000 copies in its first week. It is also the group’s fifth consecutive UK chart-topper, selling 50,000 copies in its first week of release. You can watch both Kimmel performances below.
The band recently announced details of a UK arena tour for February 2017. They will play five huge dates next year – calling at Leeds, Birmingham, Newcastle, Liverpool and Glasgow.
Kings Of Leon play the following UK dates next year:
Leeds First Direct Arena (February 19, 2017)
Birmingham Genting Arena (February 20)
Newcastle Upon Tyne Metro Radio Arena (February 24)
Liverpool Echo Arena (February 25)
Glasgow SSE Hydro (February 27)
Discussing how the band felt as they began recording ‘WALLS’, Followill told Rolling Stone: “We were scared shitless and excited at the same time and just going into it we were like, “We’re just gonna roll with it. And wherever the record takes us, that’s where we’re going to go.”
“There’s no right or wrong way to make a seventh record,” he continued. “You’ve obviously established yourself well enough if you can make seven records.”
Meanwhile, Kings Of Leon have thrown their hat into the ring among the potential headliners for next year’s Glastonbury Festival.
Last month saw ‘well sourced information’ point towards Daft Punk, Radiohead and Stone Roses being the headliners, now the ‘Sex On Fire’ rockers have teased that they may also be looking to make an appearance.
King Of Leon last headlined back in 2008, but now drummer Nathan Followill has teased to the BBC that they’re ready to return.
