News: BST Hyde Park Reveals Another Huge Headliner With @KingsOfLeon @BSTHydePark @outsideorg

American Express presents BST Hyde Park is very excited to welcome back Nashville’s finest Kings of Leon to London! The multi-award winning rock group will headline at BST Hyde Park on Sunday 30 June, with special guests Paolo Nutini and The Vaccines. The full line-up for the show is still to be announced. Tickets go on sale Wednesday 28 February, 10am GMT, with an American Express presale live from 10am GMT on 23 February. Tickets are available at www.bst-hydepark.com

Kings of Leon have also just announced their brand new album, Can We Please Have Fun, their 9th studio record. The album, as its title suggests, is a document of one of this era’s great rock and roll bands cutting loose, trying new things, and yes, having some fun. Recorded at Dark Horse studio and produced with new collaborator Kid Harpoon (Harry Styles, Florence + the Machine), the album sees the band hark back to their gritty origins, while simultaneously finding new gears.

About playing at BST Hyde Park, Kings of Leon say: “We can’t wait to get back to London and play at BST this summer. It is always a blast to play in the UK and we are ready to have some fun.”

The group, made of brothers Caleb, Nathan and Jared Followill, and their cousin Matthew Followill, first shot to success here in the UK. Their debut album, 2003’s Youth and Young Manhood, became a sensation -declared by NME as “one of the best debut albums of the last 10 years”. The multi-platinum selling band has  three Grammy Awards, three NME Awards, two BRIT Awards, and one Juno Award. They have toured all over the world, selling out arenas and stadiums and headlining major festivals including Glastonbury, Reading & Leeds Festival on three separate occasions, Lollapalooza and Coachella.

Scottish singer-songwriter Paolo Nutini joins the line-up as a special guest. With a soulful voice and a gift for storytelling, Nutini’s 2006 debut album These Streets was an instant sensation in the UK, reaching Number 3 in the Official Charts amidst a flurry of critical acclaim. His second record Sunny Side Up hit Number 1 a few years later, and his third album followed suit, after which the BRIT Award nominee took a hiatus. To much anticipation from fans, Nutini returned in 2022 with Last Night in the Bittersweet, topping the charts once more.

Plus The Vaccines, who recently released their new record Pick-up Full of Pink Carnations.

The lineup for American Express presents BST Hyde Park 2024 is set to be truly spectacular, with Kings of Leon joining previously announced headliners Andrea Bocelli (5 July), Robbie Williams (6 July), Shania Twain (7 July), Kylie (13 July) and Stray Kids (14 July), with more artists to be revealed soon!

This announcement follows the tremendous success of BST Hyde Park 2023, featuring legendary acts such as P!NK, Guns N’ Roses, Take That, BLACKPINK, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, Billy Joel, and Lana Del Rey.
