Twin Atlantic


The third support act and timings for Kings of Leon's headline stadium concert at St. James' Park have been officially released.

Glaswegian band, Twin Atlantic, will open the show at 5.15pm on Saturday, 31st May, followed by The Horrors at 6.15pm, White Lies at 7.30pm and Kings of Leon, who will take to the stage at 9pm.

Twin Atlantic's debut album, Free, boasted three Radio 1 playlisted singles, including their renowned title track which soundtracked Felix Baumgartner's historic space jump in 2012.

The band are gearing up for the release of second album Great Divide in August, which includes the massive new single Heart And Soul.

They played on the main stage at Leeds and Reading last year and have toured with bands including Smashing Pumpkins, Biffy Clyro, Gaslight Anthem and Blink 182.

The gig is Kings of Leon's largest UK stadium concert and is the first to be held at St. James' Park almost seven years. The band will play songs from their new album, Mechanical Bull, which marked their fourth number one album in the UK, in addition to classics from their back catalogue.

Three-piece band, White Lies, from Ealing have featured on multiple 'ones to watch' polls, including BBC's Sound of 2009 and the BRITs Critics' Choice Award. They also won Q Awards' Best New Band category and the MOJO Breakthrough Award and have recently released their third album Big TV, which debuted at number four on the UK Albums Chart.

The Horrors' last silver-selling album Skying entered the charts at number five and was anointed NME's Album of the Year. Boasting headline appearances at some of the UK's largest festivals, The Horrors last appeared in Newcastle in 2012 whilst supporting Florence and the Machine.
