Tickets for Kings of Leon's upcoming shows in the UK next year are now on sale, with fans racing to buy tickets for the three shows.

The 'Revelry' hitmakers announced earlier this week that they will be coming to the UK in June, 2013 as part of a wider European tour, marking their comeback after taking a short hiatus. The four-piece will be kicking off the dates on June 12 and 13 with two shows at London's O2 Arena before heading to Manchester Arena on June 24 and 25.

After a few days break - possibly to perform at Glastonbury festival - Caleb, Nathan, Jared and Matthew will then take to the stage in Birmingham on July 9 and 10. The shows will no doubt be a sell-out with fans racing to buy tickets when they went on sale at 9am this morning.

Twitter user Natalie Taylor wrote earlier: "Tickets for Kings Of Leon Arena tour. They go on sale today. I neeeeeeed tickets for the O2."

Anthony Collier added: "Ohhhh s**t just herd some of the best news ever.... Kings of leon back on tour! U know im going watching them agian!"

"I'm poor again but it was all worth it! Kings of Leon tour! Gotta spare ticket #kingsofleon #ahhhhhh," Christian Cooke also tweeted.

The band took much of the year off following a disastrous show in Texas in July, 2011, where Caleb stormed off stage after warning the audience that he was "about to fall down."

"I'm about to fall down here because I'm so goddamn hot. I have no goddamn idea what the f**k is going on, all I know is that I'm married to the prettiest f**king girl in the whole world," Caleb told the bands' fans according to DigitalSpy.

The 30-year-old reportedly vomited backstage leaving his bandmates to apologise for his illness.

"We are so unbelievably sorry, there's no words right now, honestly it's beyond our control," his brother Jared said, cutting the show short.

"Caleb's just maybe a little unfit to play the rest of the show. We're so sorry guys, we love you all so much. I know you guys f**king hate us, I can't apologise enough."

"It's really not our fault. He can't play the rest of the show. We will be back as soon as possible. F**king hate Caleb, not us," Jared added.
