Kings of Leon to perform opening concert at new Oklahoma City park

ABC/Randy HolmesWhile Kings of Leon formed in Nashville, the band members also have deep roots in Oklahoma. They'll honor those roots by performing at the grand opening of Scissortail Park, a new public space in Oklahoma City.

The show will be free, and takes place September 27.

"Honored to come back to our home state to play the opening of @ScissortailPark," the band tweeted. "The park is going to be an important part of Oklahoma City for generations, so we're excited to put on a show to remember."

"The opening of Scissortail Park is a once-in-a-lifetime moment for this city," adds Oklahoma City Mayor David Holt. "I invite the people of Oklahoma City to come to Scissortail Park the last weekend in September for the free kickoff concert from Kings of Leon, as well as three days of music, food trucks and family activities. Our park is for everyone, and you are going to love it."
