Nashville formed rock outfit Kings of Leon will return to the UK in June and July 2020 for three headline appearances.

King of Leon 2020 UK tour dates

28 June 2020 – Finsbury Park, London
7 July 2020 – Utilita Arena, Newcastle
8 July 2020 – First Direct Arena, Leeds


One of the most successful contemporary rock bands, Kings of Leon launched onto the scene in 2003 with their country-folk tinged Youth & Young Manhood. Featuring breakthrough Molly’s Chamber, the album propelled the four piece into the mainstream conscious, following it up with the equally acclaimed Aha Shake Heartbreak in 2004.

2007 gave Kings of Leon their first UK No.1 album in the form of Because Of The Times, featuring singles On Call and Charmer.

Sex On Fire from Only By The Night saw the band celebrate their first UK No.1 single, with the anthemic Use Somebody from the same album propelling the band into the stateside top five.

Their seventh studio album, WALLS, saw them finally claimed the US No.1 spot on the Billboard album chart, having reached No.2 with both previous records.

With a huge catalogue of hits, the band will now return to the UK for three headline shows. Their appearance at Finsbury Park sees them joined by fellow festival headliners Courteeners, who continue to celebrate the success of their More. Again. Forever full-length.

Other acts set to appear across the day’s two stages include Ticketmaster New For 2020 picks Inhaler, and Mercury Prize nominees The Big Moon, who released their brilliant sophomore album Walking Like We Do  earlier this year.

Tickets for the Kings of Leon shows will be priced at £69.50 plus booking fees for Finsbury Park, and £45 plus booking fees for each of the two arena dates.

Tickets for Kings Of Leon in Finsbury Park will be available in our presale from 9:00 on Thursday 6 February 2020. General sale for all dates then opens at 9:00 on Friday 7 February 2020 through Ticketmaster.co.uk.
