Kings of Leon hit platinum, celebrate with even more tour dates

on July 22, 2009, 4:09pm

Last we checked, Kings of Leon were the hottest thing since Kanye’s new stage... or the Jonas Brothers, depending on your taste. So, it’s not surprising to learn that the Nashville rock band’s most recent full-length, Only By the Night, has been certified platinum by the RIAA. For those too hip to know, that means the album has sold over one million units — a might feat in today’s music world.

To celebrate this achievement, Kings of Leon have added even more North American tour dates to their upcoming itinerary. Highlighted by previously announced headlining appearances at Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits, the band will hit the road for a 30-plus-date swing beginning in early August. The fun runs through late October with three dates in Mexico. An appearance at this year’s Voodoo Experience is also rumored.

Along the way, they’ll also make a couple stops on the television circuit, stopping at the Today Show on July 31st and the Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien on August 24th.

Tickets for many dates are available via Ticketmaster.com.
