KINGS OF LEON to deliver the bigget show of the year in Baltics in Riga

The US rock superstars Kings of Leon will deliver one of their eight scheduled European solo performances at the Mežaparks Open-air Stadium on June 25th in Riga. It will be their first and only show in the region, including Russia, Finland and Belarus, which will at length gather a large number of foreign visitors for an open-air performance of such magnitude. General tickets will go on sale from 14 February, and on pre-sale - from 11 February.

The show's organiser Ģirts Majors: "The Kings of Leon show will be the first foreign open-air performance, which, since the legendary Metallica gig at the Skonto Stadium back in 2008, will once again gather tens of thousands of showgoers in Latvia. Although Madonna, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Robbie Williams all performed in Tallinn, the Kings of Leon performance will tip back the scales, with this year's biggest music event taking place in Riga."

Only 20 000 tickets will be available in Latvia for the band's only show in the region. The remaining tickets will go on sale in Estonia, Lithuania, Finland, Russia and Belarus – countries that the band also hasn't performed in yet. Last year Kings of Leon released their sixth studio album Mechanical Bull, to which this tour is also dedicated. The ticket prices for the upcoming show will be considerable cheaper than in other European countries.

The band, compiled of four family members, achieved initial success in the United Kingdom with nine UK TOP 40 singles within a relatively short time period. All three of the band's albums peaked at the TOP 5 of the UK Albums Chart in 2008. The release of Only by the Night saw Kings of Leon transform into true global superstars. Finding their voice and grasping toward U2 levels of spacious grandeur, Kings of Leon cemented their musical style and star status with such chart topping singles like "Use Somebody" and "Sex On Fire", which have become huge global hits.

The band's frontman Anthony Caleb Followill: “I think it’s going to be a lot of fun. I think it’s the first time in a while that our fans have had a breather from us and I think the fact that we’ve been away for a minute … I think people are really excited, and I know we’re going to try to bring something special to the table.”
Kings of Leon was formed in 1999. The band is composed of brothers Anthony Caleb Followill (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Ivan Nathan Followill (drums, percussions, backing vocals) and Michael Jared Followill (bass guitar, backing vocals), with their cousin Cameron Matthew Followill (lead guitar, backing vocals).

Tickets will go on general sale on 14 February at 10am in all Biļešu Serviss box-offices as well as online. Presale tickets will be available from 10am February 11 only for the registered members of positivus.com and the fbi.lv Club members.
