Kings of Leon set to star at BST Hyde Park

Kings of Leon are set to headline BST Hyde Park.

The American rock band will perform in London on June 30, with special guests Paolo Nutini and The Vaccines.

Looking forward to the show, the band – which includes Caleb, Nathan and Jared Followill, and their cousin Matthew Followill – said: “We can’t wait to get back to London and play at BST this summer.

“It is always a blast to play in the UK and we are ready to have some fun.”

The group first found success in the UK back in 2003, when they released their debut album ‘Youth and Young Manhood’.

Since then, they’ve won numerous accolades, including three Grammy Awards, three NME Awards and two BRIT Awards, while they’ve also performed at some of the world’s best-known festivals, such as Glastonbury and Coachella.

Now, Kings of Leon will join Andrea Bocelli, Robbie Williams, Shania Twain, Kylie Minogue and Stray Kids at BST Hyde Park this year.

The Amex Presale begins at 10am GMT on Friday (23.02.24), while general sale begins 10am GMT on Wednesday (28.02.24).

Kings of Leon have relished performing in the UK over the years.

But Caleb previously admitted that their approach has changed over time.

Speaking to The Independent, he shared: “Back in the day we played 186 shows in one year. You can do that when you’re 19 and you’re playing 30-minute sets and you’re the opening band. And you can do that hung over.

“But when you’re doing a two-hour set in a stadium – my trainer says to me: ‘You’re like an athlete, a professional, and you have to keep your body in shape.’

“Although, I don’t think David Beckham would be drinking a glass of wine before a football match.”
