Kings of Leon honour London gig

Kings of Leon have announced a new tour date at London's O2 Arena to make up for the gig they were forced to cancel due to a fire.

The American rock band will now play the venue on Monday June 20 and all original tickets to the sold out gig in December remain valid.

This date will replace the previously cancelled show on December 21, when a fire at the venue destroyed two of their tour buses.

Six people needed treatment for smoke inhalation after the fire broke out in a loading area, leaving the buses gutted.

Kings of Leon return to the UK this summer to perform a series of headline outdoor shows, including two gigs at London's Hyde Park, one of which is already sold out.

The Sex On Fire rockers kick off at Coventry's Ricoh Arena on May 30 and play Sunderland's Stadium of Light, Manchester's Lancashire County Cricket Ground and Edinburgh's Murrayfield Stadium in June.
