Here is a link to the new Hyde Park concert in June 2011:
22.06.2011 London Hyde Park
Kings of Leon have this week announced details of a huge UK summer concert to take place in London’s Hyde Park. The headline show is scheduled for Wednesday 30th June 2010.
According to details on the presale page on Live Nation’s site, it looks like the event starts at 2:30pm and "under 16s must be accompanied by an adult". I believe this concert is part of the annual Hard Rock Calling series of events… officially only Pearl Jam’s day (25th June) has been confirmed so far on the Hard Rock Calling website (Pearl Jam have Ben Harper, Wolfmother, The Hives on their day, so I’m guessing other bands on Kings Of Leon’s day will be announced shortly?). I went last year to see Neil Young at HRC and it was a fantastic day out – beautiful sunshine, great music and overall the event was well organized.
On the official Kings Of Leon website there is a link through to the presale purchase page – which is currently live… however, at the bottom of the page where you select your tickets, it describes this as a ‘Fanclub Presale’
The general admission would appear to be priced at £47.50 plus a booking fee of £4.75 per ticket (=£52.25). For UK customers postage is £3.25 for standard mail or £5.25 for Registered Mail. For customers outside the UK, DHL International Delivery is £9.75. Alternatively there is an option to collect at the venue for £3.25 (please read the full T&C before purchase as often promoters state the cardholder needs to be present when collecting tickets). This info can be found on the presale page.
If you miss out on tickets during the exclusive pre-sale, tickets will be going on general sale at 9am this Friday morning (19th February). The official site states they’ll be onsale through livenation.co.uk – so I’m not sure if that means exclusively through Live Nation, or whether places like Ticketmaster, SeeTickets and Ticketline etc will have an allocation to sell?
Alternatively if you can’t get hold of tickets this week you’ll undoubtably be able to find tickets on viagogo (edit: there’s already tickets listed for sale on there)
If you find out any further info on the Kings Of Leon London Hyde Park concert please leave a comment! Any ideas of support bands etc? Let us know if the presale page works for you, or if you’re waiting for the general sale. Good luck!

Ticketmaster list the Fanclub Presale booking period as starting today at noon and ending Friday morning at 8am (Start: Wed 17/02/10, 12:00. End: Fri 19/02/10, 08:00). Also they list the actual concert start time as 4pm. SeeTickets list the event as HARD ROCK CALLING – KINGS OF LEON, so I think it’s safe to assume that it’s part of the series of events under the Hard Rock Calling banner (even though that hasn’t been mentioned in press releases/new stories I’ve read elsewhere so far). It does indeed look like you’ll be able to buy tickets from normal ticket agencies on Friday morning as both Ticketmaster and SeeTickets have landing pages set up on their sites.

@LiveNation have just Tweeted that their presale is now sold-out! "Stop press! We’ve just sold out of presale tickets for Kings of Leon in Hyde Park – who managed to get their hands on tickets?!"
