The Grammy Award-winning band will headline on 6 July (17), showcasing tracks from their recent number one record WALLS alongside their huge canon of hits from across their seven albums.

The Nashville rockers, made up of brothers Caleb Followill, Nathan Followill and Jared Followill, and their cousin Matthew Followill, announced a U.K. tour in October (16), which will hit Leeds, Birmingham, Newcastle, Liverpool and Glasgow in February 2017, after finishing their North American and German gigs, but London is not included in the itinerary.

So their appearance at BST is currently the only show the band is scheduled to play in the capital next year.

“It’s always a pleasure to party with our amazing fans at Hyde Park," Kings Of Leon’s Nathan said in a statement.

“Hyde Park has played host to what could easily be described as some of Kings of Leon's finest moments. To return to the park on the Great Oak Stage with an incredible new album and live show, together with such powerful special guests as the Pixies and Nathaniel Rateliff is going to be another highlight for their fans," added James King, Senior Vice President, AEG Live.

The band will be supported by alternative rock legends Pixies, considered to be one of the most influential bands of all time, who recently released their latest album Head Carrier earlier this year.

Kings of Leon follow Green Day and Phil Collins as the third headliners of the BST event which is in its fifth year, and has previously played host to The Rolling Stones, Kendrick Lamar, Carole King, Stevie Wonder and Taylor Swift.

Tickets go on sale on Wednesday 30 November (16).
