Kings of Leon headline first U.S. arena tour
Following their sold-out Madison Square Garden show last week, the Kings of Leon have announced a new slate of U.S. dates.
The band, which is up for three Grammys Sunday night, start its tour in Boston and swing through the northeast and south, before hitting the midwest and west coast.
So far, the Kings of Leon's international success has far eclipsed its U.S. success, although that looks like that's all about to change. "Only By the Night," was the No. 2-selling album in the U.K. last year, with sales triple the number of U.S.-copies sold. But the act is heating up the U.S. with the Grammy-nominated "Sex on Fire," which has been No. 1 on Billboard's Modern Rock chart for nine weeks.
