Kings of Leon have announced their first NZ show in 12 years! Expect an epic performance including songs from all 8 of the band's albums for two nights only this October. 

Since Kings of Leon first captivated a global audience with the release of their debut EP Holy Roller Novocaine, back in 2003, New Zealand has been obsessed with this band of brothers (and one cousin). Kings of Leon have had an astounding FIVE #1 albums in New Zealand with Because Of The Times; Come Around Sundown; Mechanical Bull and WALLS all taking the top spot on the charts. Only By The Night not only went to number 1 on the album charts, it also became New Zealand’s second best-selling album of the whole year and contains the band’s three most-streamed songs in this country – the 3x Platinum Sex On Fire, 2x Platinum Use Somebody and Platinum Closer.

With tickets sold-out long ago for the show now taking place on 24 October, fans are advised to book quickly for the Sunday 23 October show. Kings of Leon are promising a party, and revellers will be pleased to note that these new shows fall over Labour Weekend and a public holiday on Monday.

Caleb (guitar, vocals) said “We want to get back to New Zealand, it is stunningly beautiful. I remember the first time we were there, we were all kind of stunned – it felt like we were in a different world.”

Nathan (drums) said “New Zealand! Kings of Leon are coming back. We’re so excited, it’s been way too long, we cannot wait to get back with you guys and have a little rock and/or roll.  Get your tickets, come out, dance with us. It’s going to be a party.”

These new show dates replace the original March 2022 dates that were postponed due to Covid restrictions.
