Band of Horses announced as King of Leon's openers
Kings of Leon have just announced that U.S. rockers Band of Horses will be their opening guests throughout their entire Aussie tour in November.
The Tennessee lads have also confirmed they'll be holding an extra show in Melbourne.
The Kings of Leon postponed their March 2011 tour because drummer Nathan Followill needed surgery for a shoulder injury.
The band's stoked to finally be able to come down to Oz.
"Thanks to our fans for their understanding in us having to move the tour. We are happy to report that Nathan is recovering well. We love Australia and can't wait to be with you this spring," a statement from the band reads.
Their third Melbourne gig will take place on November 16 at Rod Laver Arena and tickets will be on sale Thursday 2 June at 9am.
