KINGS of Leon's drummer hopes Wrexham's star owners will let him 'hitch a ride' to a match next season.

The American rock legends put on a fantastic double-header of gigs at the Racecourse ground over Bank Holiday weekend.

Fans rocked out to some of the band's huge hits including; 'Sex On Fire', 'Use Somebody', 'Knocked Up' and 'The Bucket'.

And now, at least one of the band members is hopeful of a return to the city in the near future.

Ahead of the gigs, drummer Nathan Followill and his brother and the band's bassist Jared were very vocal on Twitter when it came to backing Wrexham AFC.

Both congratulated the Reds on their success as they returned to the English Football League as National League champions last month.

Following the gigs at the weekend, Nathan Tweeted out a plea to the club's co-chairmen Rob McElhenney and Ryan Reynolds.


He hinted that the pair could 'let him hitch a ride' with them to a Wrexham game when next season begins.

He also thanked fans who attended the gigs for 'rocking out' with the band during their visit.

He wrote: "Farewell Wrexham and thank you for rocking out your lovely city with us these last few nights. Maybe @VancityReynolds or @RMcElhenney will let me hitch a ride to a match next season."

Kings of Leon were first formed in Nashville, Tennessee, in 1999.

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