Kings of Leon will add BST Hyde Park to their impressive festival run later on this summer. 

The Use Somebody hitmakers - Caleb, Nathan, Matthew and Jared Followill - will hit the stage at London’s Hyde Park for the second time. They originally played the festival back in 2019. 

Kings of Leon will play BST Hyde Park on Sunday 30th June, alongside special guests Paolo Nutini and The Vaccines. Even more stars are expected to be announced soon. 

Tickets go on sale on Wednesday 28 February, with the presale going live from 10am today (23 February). All tickets are available from

The Kings’ festival performance comes hot on the heels of their ninth studio album announcement. 

The new record, titled Can We Please Have Fun, will document the rockers trying out new things all while keeping the dark, gritty sound fans have loved them for. 

About playing at BST Hyde Park, Kings of Leon 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.”

Originally hailing from Nashville, Kings first found fame in the UK with their 2003 debut album, Youth and Young Manhood. They went on to win three Grammy Awards, three NME Awards, two BRIT Awards, and one Juno Award. 

They have toured all over the world, selling out arenas and stadiums and headlining major festivals including Glastonbury, Reading & Leeds Festival on three separate occasions, Lollapalooza and Coachella.

It’s a stellar line-up for BST Hyde Park this year, which already boasts Andrea Bocelli (5th July), Robbie Williams (6th July), Shania Twain (7th July), Kylie (13th July) and K-pop band Stray Kids (14th  July).

Tickets go on sale on Wednesday 28 February, with an American Express presale live from 10am today (23 February). Tickets are available at
