Kings of Leon confirmed to play headline slot at Hyde Park

Stadium rockers Kings of Leon have joined the lineup for next year's British Summer Time Hyde Park .

The band, whose latest album WALLS topped the chart on both sides of the Atlantic, will play on 6 July and will be, pretty ably supported we have to say, by alt-giants Pixies.

In a no-way paraphrased statement, Kings Of Leon’s Nathan said: “It’s always a pleasure to party with our amazing fans at Hyde Park.”

Also playing on the bill are Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats.

Previously announced headliners of the annual event are Green Day and Phil Collins.
