Kings Of Leon are to headline a one-off show in Liverpool this summer, put together by the organisers of the city’s Fusion Festival. The show actually takes place the day before the main Fusion event, although tickets will be sold separately, under the name Fusion Presents.

“Liverpool is an iconic city, entrenched in music heritage and we’ve wanted to launch a new event for the last couple of years”, says event director Damien Sanders. “The biggest challenge has been finding the right artist for the job. We’re over the moon that we were able to secure one of the world’s most successful rock bands to launch Fusion Presents and we cannot wait to see them perform in our new home, Sefton Park”.

The show will take place on 30 Aug, with support from Franz Ferdinand, Echo And The Bunnymen, Circa Waves and Sam Fender, with more names to be announced. Tickets are set to go on sale on Friday.

Details of this year’s Fusion Festival, set to take place on 31 Aug and 1 Sep, are yet to be announced.

Elsewhere in Kings Of Leon news, the band have joined Irving Azoff’s Full Stop Management. They’ve followed their longtime manager Andy Mendelsohn, who recently left Vector Management to join Full Stop.
