Kings Of Leon will headline Tennent's Vital on Wednesday 14th August, Tennent's Lager & MCD are thrilled to reveal. The Southern rockers are the first act to be announced for the 2013 festival, which returns to Boucher Road Playing Fields in Belfast this August, with details of the second date and more exciting line-up news set to be unveiled by organisers next month.
After a two year hiatus, Kings of Leon are back and ready to make their long awaited live return to Europe this summer. The band posted images of their return to the studio on their official Facebook page last week, fuelling excitement amongst fans, with anticipation for details of their 6th album rapidly growing.
The Followills made a big impression when they burst onto the scene in 2003 with their debut release Youth & Young Manhood. Since then, they've sold out arenas across the globe and cemented their status as one of the world's biggest and most in-demand rock bands. The band have a slew of number 1 platinum selling records under their belt plus an array of accolades including BRIT Awards for Best International Band and Best International Album (Only By the Night) plus Grammys including the prestigious Record of the Year (Use Somebody) as well as Best Rock Performance and Best Rock Song. Their epic, soaring anthems and incredible energy make them one of the greatest live acts on the planet, and their return to Belfast is sure to be the hottest ticket of the summer.
