Kings of Leon – Tour 2014
06.01.2014. Following on from their successful 2013, Kings of Leon are set to follow on with a ‘Mechanical Bull’ tour in 2014.
The American rock band released their sixth studio album, Mechanical Bull back in September of this year and hope to promote it further with a tour in the UK in May and June of next year. The group will only being playing four venues for the Britain based part of their tour, going to Newcastle, Sheffield, Manchester and finally Milton Keynes. These will all be in stadiums or arenas, such as St James Park so expect a huge production that will get everyone pumped up for an excellent performance. The atmosphere at the shows will no doubt be something to remember on its own.
While the show will likely be filled with songs from their new album such as ‘Supersoaker’ and ‘Temple’, fans of their old material will still probably be able to see favourites such as ‘Sex on fire’ being performed live by the group from Nashville.
The band show no signs of slowing down with Mechanical Bull being released relatively shortly after their previous album Come Around Sunshine. The quality of the songs has no doubt been maintained throughout the production of the album and it is just a question as to what next for the band, who seem to be growing in stature all the time.
Going into their 15th year together, expect big things from the quartet of musicians, and family members, in the coming year.
Kings of Leon – UK Tour 2013
06.06.2014 Kings of Leon have announced three UK tour dates in August prior to their highly anticipated V-Festival performance.
It’s been a while and UK fans can’t wait to see the King of Leon concerts live this year. They are even more excited now, since the band announced that they will play three additional intimate concerts prior to their V-Festival performance in August. Kings of Leon tickets will be rare because of the size of the venues.
The Kings of Leon tour will start on August 9th with an exclusive gig at the Shepards Bush Empire – a venue with a capacity of 2000. The band will move on to Belfast and Glasgow before they move to the V Festival. Since the tour is before the release of their new album, there is a chance that a variety of their discography will be played, as well as a sneak peak of what the new album has to offer.
It is recommended to fans that they should secure Kings of Leon tickets as soon as possible as those venues are very intimidate. One of these concerts allows you to get free King of Leon tickets if you are a UK resident, so make sure you apply for that before they all get taken.
The rock band, in its 3rd decade after being formed in 1999 and will be releasing their 6th album “Mechanical Bull” in September. The Kings of Leon tour and album will be interesting to see with rumours going around that the band are nearing the end, with a hiatus in 2011 and different side projects being started by band members. If they band are staying together as they suggest, this album will hopefully follow on from their previous successes in the UK.
Kings of Leon tickets are available now. Get your tickets now and experience one of the best rock bands our generation live in the UK.
