Tennessee rockers Kings Of Leon are to play three extra shows in the UK in July.

The band made up of the Followill brothers are about to embark on a series of sold-out shows in April, promoting the release of the third album, "Because Of The Times" on April 2.

The family band last played in the UK in 2005, playing a triumphant sold-out Arena tour, including six sold-out nights in London.

Last year they toured North America extensively, first with U2 and then with Bob Dylan.

Kings Of Leon will now also play:

Bournemouth, International Centre (0870 111 3000) (July 4)
Cardiff, International Arena (029 2022 4488) (5)
London, Hammersmith Apollo (0870 606 3400) (12)

Tickets for the July dates go on sale tomorrow (March 16) at 9am.
