American rock band Kings of Leon is set to head out on a 31-date North American trek on June 5, announced the band's website on March 15. Fresh off of three 2010 Grammy wins, the band will begin its major-venue tour in Atlantic City, New Jersey, then make its way around the country through September 23.

Kings of Leon will be touring in support of its 2008 Only By the Night, which peaked in the top ten in ten countries, went platinum in the US, and was the best-selling album of the year in Australia and in the US iTunes Store. "Sex on Fire and "Use Somebody" from that album earned the band Grammy Awards in both 2009 and 2010.

The band's other previously scheduled tour dates include June and August performances in the UK and a headlining performance in June at the Bonnaroo Festival in Tennesee.
