Kings of Leon announce tour

The Kings of Leon have confirmed the first leg of a nationwide US tour, in support of the new record, Because Of The Times, to be released on April 3rd.

Bookended by appearances at the Coachella and Bonnaroo festivals, the tour will start at Coachella and heads to Seattle on May 2.  After the June 14 date in Columbus, OH, the tour finishes at the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival. 

More touring is to follow during the summer and into the fall and winter of 2007. The complete list of dates for the first leg of the tour is below.

On March 26, one week before release date, Kings of Leon return to the "Late Show with David Letterman" to perform the single "On Call."  One month later, on April 27, just before the Coachella performance, the band will return to the "Tonight Show with Jay Leno."
