Their return to the UK coincides with the release of their ninth full-length studio album, Can We Please Have Fun, which will be released on May 10.

Since their debut in 2003, Kings of Leon - brothers Caleb (guitar/vocals), Nathan (drums) and Jared Followill (bass), and their cousin Matthew Followill (guitar) - have sold over 20 million albums and nearly 40 million singles worldwide.

The band have toured all over the world, playing at stadiums and arenas and headlining major festivals including Glastonbury, Coachella, Lollapalooza and Reading & Leeds on three separate occasions.
