Kings of Leon

Alt-rock champions Kings of Leon are hitting the road this summer. Kicking off on August 3 in West Palm Beach, FL, the When You See Yourself Tour will see the Grammy Award-winning group travel through 20+ cities before wrapping things up on October 3 in Ridgefield, WA. The tour will make stops at outdoor venues across North America, including two hometown shows at Nashville’s Ascend Amphitheater.

Tickets for the tour will be available to the general public beginning Friday, May 21 at 10:00 AM local time at www.livenation.com.

Known for their impressive live performances, which have consistently been praised by critics for their dynamic creative, Kings of Leon will take to the stage performing new material alongside fan favorite tracks in their highly anticipated return to live shows.

Special guests Cold War Kids will join them as support, with band frontman Nathan Willett adding, “We are so excited to open for Kings of Leon on tour all over the US! Like, thrilled beyond belief, losing our minds about it! Let’s go!”

Earlier this year, Kings of Leon released their innovative eighth studio album When You See Yourself, marking the first time ever that a new album was released as an NFT. In a first of it’s kind launch, the innovative album release made waves through the music industry, quickly becoming one of the most successful wide-scale use of NFTs within the music industry to date.  

In the history making drop, the band made available six Golden Ticket experiences, offering fans four front row seats, each tour, to the show of their choosing, anywhere in the world, for life. 

NFT YOURSELF album token holders were also able to redeem “Going Nowhere” (an acoustic version of the album track ‘Supermarket’). The previously unreleased version of the track is being given as a token of appreciation to everyone who was willing to invest in the future of music, during a year of uncertain futures. As Kings of Leon continue exploring ways to connect directly with their fans, NFT YOURSELF will be the gift that keeps on giving.

The drop has raked in 1k Ethereum, which at today’s valued exchange rate, is approximately 3.7 million dollars. $600,000 of that has gone to directly benefit Live Nation’s Crew Nation. Echoing this sentiment on tour, the band will continue to give back to their musical community with one dollar from every ticket going directly to their newly formed Inherit The Music foundation. 

Inherit The Music is embarking on a campaign to inspire the next generation of musicians. Co-founded by Kings of Leon and philanthropist Alisha Ballard, Inherit The Music supports local organizations that pay forward the gifts that only music can provide. By providing resources and funding education programs at all age levels, this newly formed charitable organization aims to impact the aspiring musicians of today and the future.

Kings of Leon’s latest album, When You See Yourself, was recorded at Nashville’s famed Blackbird Studios and produced by Grammy Award-winning Markus Dravs (Arcade Fire, Coldplay, Wolf Alice).
