Kings of Leon Announce Summer 2021 Tour
Cold War Kids will open the August - October jaunt
Kings of Leon are hitting the road, kicking off a North American tour supporting their When You See Yourself album starting August 3 in West Palm Beach, Florida. They’ve plotted a 26-show tour, with Cold War Kids opening throughout the dates, and ending October 2 in Ridgefield, Washington.
Tickets for all shows will go on sale May 21 at 10 a.. local time via Live Nation. See more information on Kings of Leon’s official site.
When You See Yourself is KOL’s eighth studio album. It marked the first in five years following their 2016 LP, Walls. With their latest, the band became the first to leap into the digital realm of NFTs (non-fungible tokens).
Kings of Leon took over SPIN last month as our April cover story. In it, the band of brothers (and a cousin) details how they spent their time in 2020 amidst the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic. While it began feeling like a welcome break, lead singer and guitarist, Caleb Followill, admitted that as they tried to lay the foundation for future projects, it all began to feel like “the ultimate case of hurry up and wait.”
“The one thing that I’ve realized is that people are still going to go watch a rock show,” Caleb says. “People are dying to get off their couch and go watch a fucking rock and roll show. And luckily, we can do that.”
“It has that fun first day of summer camp vibe to it, which we’ve missed so much. It’s going to be super cool to get out there and play these songs for the first time,” drummer Nathan Followill told us.
