Kings of Leon to Roskilde Festival 2011

The American rock band returns to the festival as absolute superstars.

Christmas comes early this year for music fans. We bring to you one of today's most wanted, critically acclaimed and best-selling rock acts.

KINGS OF LEON (US) have grown from being a respected alternative rock band to absolute stadium stars. Since their fourth album – the breakthrough Only by the Night – things have progressed rapidly, and Kings of Leon are no longer just for fans of alternative country rock with a Southern accent. Today the whole world sings along to hits such as "Sex On Fire" and "Use Somebody".

Kings of Leon have just released a long-awaited follow-up – Come Around Sundown – that, according to the band itself, should satisfy both new and old fans. It is one of the best selling alternative rock albums right now and has been praised by Rolling Stone, Uncut and Q Magazine, among others. Previous album Only By The Night has sold 6.5 million copies so far.

With a new album out and an ultimate star status, a reunion concert with the royal lads is obvious. Kings of Leon also visited Roskilde Festival in 2004 and 2008, and the audience really want them back. When we asked for your music requests in October, Kings of Leon were the most popular request.

With Iron Maiden and Kings of Leon, Roskilde Festival 2011 already has a couple of strong flagships in port. And the calendar does not even say 2011 yet.
