Kings Of Leon reschedule O2 date
Kings Of Leon have rescheduled their show at London's The O2, cancelled in December after a fire at the venue.
The 'Radioactive' group were forced to pull out of their last show of 2010 after two of their buses caught fire while equipment was being set up for the show.
The new concert will now take place on June 20, and all original tickets for the show remain valid.
60 fire fighters attended the blaze, which was quickly put under control, and while no-one was hurt in the incident, after the venue had completed safety checks, there was not enough time to set up the stage before showtime.
A statement released by the group at the time said: "Kings of Leon send their sincerest apologies to all the fans who were planning and travelling to attend what was due to be a triumphant finale to their European tour."
Earlier in the day drummer Nathan Followill had tweeted about his excitement at playing that night.
He wrote: "Good morning London. Last show of the tour/year and it looks like it's gonna be 1 hell of a finale. Let's do it in a drunken way shall we (sic)."
