New Seats Released for Kings of Leon Gigs

Friday 28 November 2008

They sold out New York City's fabled Radio City Music Hall, The Greek Theatre in Hollywood and London's 20 000 seat O2 Arena in under an hour. And now Nashville's finest will return to Australia and New Zealand in 2009 as Kings of Leon tour in support of their monster #1 album Only By The Night.

It's been an impressive rise to the top for Kings of Leon. When Kings of Leon released their third album Because Of The Times in April 2007, Entertainment Weekly called it their "crowning achievement," while Rolling Stone wondered: "How good can the Kings of Leon get? They've already gone further than anybody could have guessed."

The fans - and critics - have agreed resoundingly. A landmark for Kings of Leon, Only By The Night has reached #1 on the ARIA and RIANZ charts, already notching up triple platinum sales in Australia, and platinum in New Zealand, ensuring Kings of Leon will reign supreme in 2009.
