American rockers Kings of Leon have announced a limited run of UK live dates to take place this summer, and will play Leeds, London and Newcastle in 2020.

The 'Sex on Fire' and 'Use Somebody' singers will also take a trip down to Cornwall to headline the annual Boardmasters festival.

The Nashville band's London date - their first in the capital in three years - will see them top the bill of a mini festival in its own right.

Courteeners, Cage The Elephant, Inhaler, Soccer Mommy, and The Big Moon are all set to support, with more acts set to be announced soon.

Support for the Leeds and Newcastle dates is yet to be announced.

The full list of Kings of Leon tour dates is as follows:

28 June - Finsbury Park, London7 July - Utilita Arena, Newcastle8 July - First Direct Arena, Leeds8 August - Boardmasters Festival, Newquay

How can I get tickets?

Tickets for Kings of Leon's headline dates go on sale on Friday 7 February at 9am. They will be available through Ticketmaster.

A pre-sale will be available to those signed up to either Live Nation or Ticketmaster's newsletters from 9am on Thursday 6 February.

Finsbury Park tickets are priced at £69.50 plus booking fee for general admission (VIP tickets are also available), while the arena dates are priced from £45 plus booking fee.

Tickets for the Boardmasters festival in Newquay are on sale now, and can be purchased through the event's website.

What might they play?

Obviously, Kings of Leon's live shows are some months away, so it's hard to predict with much accuracy what might be on the setlist.

Songs like 'Sex on Fire' and 'Use Somebody' are almost certain to get an airing, but what else can fans expect to hear come the summer?

According to setlist.fm, Kings of Leon's 'average' setlist in 2019 looked like this:

2020 marks the ten year anniversary of the band's fifth album 'Come Around Sundown', so perhaps a few choice cuts from that record will also be given a celebratory performance or two?

Will there be a new album soon?

Kings of Leon haven't released a new album since 2016's 'WALLS', so fans will be hoping that a new record will be due in the near future, maybe even tying in with this summer's shows.

The band have been quiet on the possibility of an eighth record, but one can fairly safely assume it is on the way.
