After they infamously burnt out on touring in 2011 and went on a lengthy hiatus, Kings of Leon are showing no sign of fatigue this year, which is good news for Twin Cities fans. The Tennessee rockers have announced an Oct. 18 date at Xcel Energy Center, part of a fall trek hitting cities that missed out on their many dates this spring and summer.
Tickets go on sale Friday at 11 a.m. via Ticketmaster for $35-$85. Another band made up of siblings, Dawes -- who count the Twin Cities as one of their best markets – will open the show. Pre-sale offers begin Wednesday.
KoL last played the Twin Cities in 2014 to a half-full Target Center crowd supporing their poorly received album, “Mechanical Bull.” Last year’s follow-up record, “Walls,” has fared better, especially now that the latest single, “Waste a Moment,” is earning ample AAA radio play.
