Multi BRIT and Grammy award winning band Kings of Leon have announced two huge outdoor shows at the iconic Racecourse Ground, home of Wrexham AFC, over the Bank Holiday Weekend, on Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th May 2023.
The new dates follow last year’s massive UK arena tour which included two shows at London The O2 and marked the band’s first UK performances since headlining Reading and Leeds Festivals in 2018. Kings of Leon released their eighth album ‘When You See Yourself’ in March 2021 and it became their 6th album in a row, to debut at number one in the UK.
