Kings of Leon, whose new album, “Mechanical Bull,” debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200, will kick off a tour in support of the album Feb. 5, 2014 at Philips Arena in Atlanta. Gary Clark Jr. will open the shows.
Hopefully the tour will go better than the group’s last outing in 2011: the North American leg ended after lead singer Caleb Followill left the stage, telling the audience he had to go “vomit” and “drink a beer,” in that order. The band canceled the rest of its U.S. tour that year, but completed some international dates.
As HitFix’s recent interview with Jared Followill revealed, the band seems to be in a much better place now.
Tickets go on sale Nov. 1 for the outing.
