LONDON (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — The Kings of Leon seem to have become something of a sensation in the UK and when tickets went on sale for a June 15, 2009 Kings gig at London's O2 Arena, they sold out in four minutes.
According to Billboard, the band, in response to the demand, quickly added another date for the following which also sold out in just under an hour. A third date for June 30 was added to accommodate demand.
And all this is in addition to December 15th show at the O2 which is also sold out. A spokesperson for the O2 told Billboard that ticket sales have exceeded 50,000 and another 35,000 have been sold at the Manchester Evening News Arena for a pair of dates on June 22 & 23.
The band has been touring in support of their album "Only by the Night" which has hit double platinum status with more than 600,000 units sold. – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
