Big Concerts today confirmed that the Kings of Leon tour to South Africa, which was postponed due to drummer Nathan Followill undergoing surgery, has been officially moved to October 2011. The new tour dates are scheduled for Cape Town Stadium (on the 26th October 2011) and FNB Stadium (on the 29th October 2011).
