Kings Of Leon to play Radio 1 gig
Kings Of Leon
Kings Of Leon will preview tracks from their new album at an intimate show

Kings Of Leon have announced plans for a special Radio 1 show next week.

The intimate gig, which will see the band preview tracks from their new album, Only By The Night, is to be held at Maida Vale studios on 11 September.

Up to 50 pairs of tickets are being made available to fans through a lottery system online.

The four-piece are due to head out on a 12 date winter tour later this year which will wrap up at London's Wembley Arena on 22 December.

Live shows

Speaking about their forthcoming Maida Vale session singer Caleb Followill told Zane Lowe: "We're not really used to little live shows like this. We've done a few recorded radio sessions but never live.

"We want to give our fans the best quality sound and hopefully pick out the right tunes for them.

"I'm a little nervous about playing new track, Use Somebody, because we have only olayed it twice. That's the first song that Matthew (Followill) has to really sing so I've told him to lay off the cigarettes for the last few days."

The gig will go out live on the Zane Lowe show on the same night.

Only By The Night is released on 22 September.
