NASHVILLE, TN (CelebrityAccess) — Arena rockers the Kings of Leon have rallied from their COVID-19 lassitude with a brand new album supported by a major North American tour set to hit the road later this year.
Produced by Live Nation, the When You See Yourself Tour will hit the ground running at the iThink Financial Amphitheater in West Palm Beach, Florida on August 3rd with more than 20 additional shows scheduled before winding up at Sunlight Supply Amphitheater in Ridgefield, Washington on October 3rd.
The tour will include a pair of performances at Ascend Amphitheater in the Kings of Leon’s home turf of Nashville on August 12 & 13 as well as festival plays that include Jazz Aspen Snowmass Labor Day Experience on Labor Day Weekend.
Cold War Kids are lined up to provide support on the tour.
The Kings will be touring behind their latest studio album, When You See Yourself, which was released earlier this year in conjunction with a non-fungible token. As part of the NFT, the band made available six “golden ticket” fan experiences that include four front row seats, each tour, to the show of their choosing, anywhere in the world, for life.
Fans who picked up a copy of NFT Yourself album tokens were also able to redeem “Going Nowhere” (an acoustic version of the album track ‘Supermarket’) that was previously unreleased.
Through the NFT drop, Kings of Leon was able to realize 1k Ethereum, which at today’s valued exchange rate, is approximately 3.7 million dollars. Of that, KOL donated $600,000 to directly benefit Live Nation’s foundation Crew Nation.
Additionally, the Kings have pledged to provide one dollar from every ticket for the tour to their newly formed Inherit The Music foundation.
Co-founded by Kings of Leon and philanthropist Alisha Ballard, the foundation provides resources and funding education programs at all age levels to help inspire the musicians of tomorrow.
