Kings of Leon will continue supporting last year's "Mechanical Bull" with a summer and fall itinerary spread across Europe and North America.

The award-winning alt-rockers will get started later this month in the U.K. before moving over to mainland Europe in early June for a month of concerts.

The North American leg gets underway July 31 in Maryland Heights, MO, and hits 33 major markets, including the Oct. 5 wrap-up in Irvine, CA.
