Kings of Leon Announce Return Visit to BOK Center

While this blog might be mostly focused on the visual and live performing arts because of my own personal interests and the emphasis of my exploration of the local scene, as a relatively new Tulsan, music will occasionally find its way into this (cyber) space. Even without theater to accompany it.

Timeliness dictates this announcement that Kings Of Leon announced today the second leg of their American tour, which includes a return visit to the BOK Center on April 8, 2014, in support of their latest album, Mechanical Bull. The second leg of the 2014 Mechanical Bull Tour begins on March 19, 2014 at the Ak-Chin Pavilion in Phoenix, AZ.  Produced by Live Nation and presented by Klipsch Audio, this leg will feature opener Local Natives. Tickets for the general public go on sale starting Friday, December 13 at www.livenation.com.

Kings of Leon, of course, have a strong connection to Oklahoma with all four founding members with Oklahoma roots. Moreover, their crossover sound and appeal shows influences of their roots in the Sooner State.

The result?

Tremendous appeal in Oklahoma and an expected surge of interest when tickets go on sale is the result.

With a venue as universally praised as the BOK Center, a team like the gang at SMG Tulsa and Kings of Leon, this will be a huge night for music lovers in Tulsa.
