Once an arena band, always an arena band? Kings of Leon seems to think so. The familial Tennessee rockers will return March 6 to Target Center, the second-to-last date on the first leg of their 2014 U.S. tour announced today. Tickets go on sale Nov. 2 at 10 a.m. via the arena box office, AXS.com, LiveNation.com or call 888-9-AXS-TIX. Prices have not yet to be announced.

After abruptly cancelling their tour in 2011 and taking more than a year off for personal time (but apparently not rehab time), the Followill brothers and cousin Matthew returned with their sixth album, “Mechanical Bull,” on Sept. 24. They’ve played a few club and festival dates around TV appearances since then, but they won’t hit the road full-time until their tour kick-off in Atlanta on Feb. 5.

Much like the fair-to-middling response to “Mechanical Bull,” KoL’s “Bull”-heavy performances at the Austin City Limits Festival earlier this month also earned lukewarm reviews. Still, even when frontman Caleb Followill was fighting a bad cold, their prior Target Center gig in 2009 proved they know how to handle the big rooms.
