Kings Of Leon Ready To Rock Mildura

28 April 2022

One of the world’s top rock acts, Kings of Leon, will play a one-off regional gig in Mildura on Saturday, 29 October, thanks to support from the Andrews Labor Government.

Minister for Tourism, Sport and Major Events Martin Pakula today announced Mildura will be the only regional stop on the band’s first Australian and New Zealand tour in 10 years.

The concert is expected to attract up to 15,000 fans to Mildura Sporting Precinct and inject millions of dollars into the local economy.

The four-time Grammy Award winners have headlined the world’s biggest festivals, including Coachella and Lollapalooza, and broke their own attendance record at London’s massive Hyde Park during their last tour.

Famous for smash hits including Sex on Fire and Use Somebody, Kings of Leon will be a huge drawcard for Mildura. Local hotels, restaurants, retail shops and businesses are set to benefit from this major event for the region.

The Labor Government is backing the return of a crowd-pleasing public events calendar in regional and rural areas in 2022 through the $20 million Regional Events Fund.

Tickets to the Kings of Leon Mildura show go on sale at 12pm, Tuesday, 3 May. For more information and tickets visit tegdainty.comExternal Link .
