BEAKING NEWS- The Kings Of Leon are playing in South Africa on 2 dates in 2 of the SA’s biggest venues.

Tickets go on sale this Sat the 4th of December and will be sure to sell like hotcakes. Well done to Nokia and 5fm for bringing South Africa another quality act 🙂
2011 is shaping out to be an absolute cracker!!
For the past month or so there have been quite a few rumours flying around the industry that the proponents of firey sex- The Kings of Leon were on their way to South Africa as part of their World Tour in 2011, just lacking a media partner and SA tour dates- MyCityByNight can finally confirm that this is actually true with an announcement coming from the likes of events promoters Big Concerts made yesterday-
Big Concerts had this to say:
“At last we can confirm that the Kings of Leon are coming to South Africa! For all the tour dates and ticket
details catch the 5FM Breakfast Show on Thursday morning. Be sure to put this
one your Christmas shopping list!”
Now that is pretty awesome news! They are definately one of the bands that MyCityByNight gets rather excited about (I mean they made a song about sex… that is on fire) and we’re super amped to see them live. Check out these vids of one or 2 live Kings Of Leon songs! Whaaat? These guys are good!

The tour coincides with the release of The Kings of Leon new and 5th studio album entitled Come Around Sundown (sexual reference for the win) released on October 15 2010.
The lead single, “Radioactive”, along with its accompanying music video, premiered on 8 September on the Kings’ official website. The following day, it received its official radio premiere on Australian radio. If that wasnt enough the album debuted at number one in Australia, Austria, Belgium (Flanders), Canada, Germany, Ireland, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. In the UK, the album sold 183,000 units in its first week as well as breaking the record for biggest first week digital album sales by selling over 49,000 album downloads.- They’re going to be good!
