June 5th, 2024

The remainder of the support acts joining Kings Of Leon at their upcoming show at BST Hyde Park have been revealed – check out the complete line-up below.

The multi-award-winning Nashville band are set to return to the UK later this summer for a huge headline slot at BST Hyde Park in London. They will be taking to the stage on June 30, and join the bill alongside fellow headliners including Stevie Nicks and SZA.

Initially, it had been announced that Paolo Nutini and The Vaccines would be joining Caleb Followill and co. for the slot, taking to the stage on the day as special guests. Now, with the performance less than a month away, the remainder of artists also performing on the night have been confirmed.

Among the seven newly-announced names is guitarist and singer-songwriter Gary Clark Jr – a dynamic, contemporary blues artist who has built a name for himself following the release of his breakthrough 2012 album ‘Blak And Blu’. He has since gone on to collaborate with the likes of Foo Fighters and Alicia Keys, and he released his latest LP ‘JPEG RAW’ earlier this year.

Also joining the line-up for BST Hyde Park is the Los Angeles electro-pop trio Cannons. Comprised of Michelle Joy, Ryan Clapham and Paul Davis, the band have solidified their signature sound through three albums: 2017’s ‘Night Drive’, 2019’s ‘Shadows’ and their latest release, 2022’s ‘Fever Dream’.

Somebody’s Child – a groundbreaking artist from Dublin – is also joining the line-up for June 30, as is Liverpudlian alternative sextet Red Rum Club, and Keo, a four-piece alt-rock band with a post-grunge sound.

The list of support acts for Kings Of Leon is completed by The Meffs, an electric punk-rock duo, as well as singer-songwriter Nieve Ella and guitar-oriented pop band Daydreamers. Visit here for any remaining tickets to the Hype Park show.

“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,” Kings Of Leon said when confirming their headline slot earlier this year.

The massive performance also comes following the presenters dropping their latest studio album ‘Can We Please Have Fun?’.

The project marked their ninth studio album and saw the band return to their roots and seek out a more lighthearted, fun approach to songwriting. It was given a three-star review by NME ahead of its official release.

“Many fans will be wondering if this is finally the record where KOL return to the dirty rock‘n’roll roots that we fell in love with in the first place? Well, yes and no,” it read. “This is easily KOL’s most promising, liberated record for over a decade but still surprisingly restrained in places. Can they have fun? Yes it appears, in places, but they could have had a whole lot more.”

The frontman also spoke to NME ahead of the release, and recalled what he was looking to achieve with the LP. “With this record, I was like: ‘Alright, big boy, it’s time to be a songwriter… I wanted people to feel the passion that went into [this album] and the honest, blue-collar hard work,” he said.

Also headlining BST Hyde Park this summer are SZA (June 29), Morgan Wallen (July 4) Andrea Bocelli (July 5), Robbie Williams (July 6), Shania Twain (July 7), Stevie Nicks (July 12), Kylie Minogue (July 13) and Stray Kids (July 14).

In other Kings Of Leon news, it was announced today that the Nashville rock group are among the bookies’ favourites when it comes to the act who will play a secret set at Glastonbury 2024.
