KINGS OF Leon's drummer says he's expecting 'one hell of a good time' when the rock legends arrive in Wrexham at the end of this month.

The American band will be performing at the Racecourse ground on both Saturday, May 27 and Sunday, May 28.

Confirmed to be joining them during the gigs are Stereophonics star Kelly Jones' new band Far From Saints and Wrexham-based legends Declan Swans.

Those two shows will no doubt act as one big promotion party for Wrexham fans too at what is the club's historic home ground.

Kings of Leon fans will be hoping to hear some of the band's greatest hits performed throughout the weekend; from 'Sex On Fire' and 'Use Somebody' to 'Pyro' and 'Closer'.

And, ahead of arriving in north Wales, one of the band's members has been showing his support for Wrexham.


Drummer Nathan Followill has given his thoughts ahead of the band performing at the Racecourse.

He replied to a Tweet put up by Wrexham co-chairman Ryan Reynolds about purchasing Kings of Leon tickets.

Ryan wrote: "Come watch the investiture of the former Princes of Leon as they are crowned Kings. Rob will be carrying a fancy sword. Click here for tickets."

In reply, speaking on May 9, Nathan Tweeted: "I’m starching my tuxedo t shirt as I type. It’s going to be one hell of a good time. Did I mention we have Welsh in our family?"

And that was not the first time that Nathan has Tweeted about Wrexham either.

On the day the club was promoted, he said: "Congrats on the huge win today @Wrexham_AFC. We will have to celebrate in person in a few weeks."

Kings of Leon are an American rock band that was first formed in Nashville, Tennessee, in 1999.

The band is composed of brothers Caleb, Nathan and Jared Followill, and their cousin Matthew Followill.

Nathan's brother and the band's bass guitarist Jared has also thrown his support behind Wrexham AFC over the past few weeks.

Following the 3-1 win over Boreham Wood on April 22, to secure the National League title and promotion, he said: "Boooooom! Congrats @Wrexham_AFC on getting promoted! Save some beer for me and I'll see you all next month!"
