Followill brothers Caleb, Jared, Matthew and Nathan will launch the U.K. shows with a two night stand at The O2 London June 12. At this time the schedule has the Kings Of Leon wrapping their U.K. excursion in Birmingham July 10.

Here’s the plan:

June 12 – London, The O2 – London
June 13 – London, The O2 – London
June 24 – Manchester, Manchester Arena
June 25 – Manchester, Manchester Arena
July 9 – Birmingham, LG Arena
July 10 – Birmingham, LG Arena

With all that time between engagements, we can’t help but wonder if the band is leaving the door open for some festival engagements. Kings Of Leon is already set to play the Optimus Alive! Festival in Lisbon, Portugal July 14.

Tickets for the U.K. shows go on sale Nov. 9. Visit for more information.
