The Las Vegas four-piece will be joined by British groups Elbow, Tears For Fears and White Lies in London's Hyde Park on Saturday July 8.

The band's appearance is being billed as a "UK festival exclusive" and comes after previous headline announcements including Justin Bieber, Green Day and Kings Of Leon.

Also appearing at BST across June and July are Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers and Phil Collins, whose appearance will be his biggest solo show to date.

"To have them back in the park with such strong support from Elbow and then the first appearance in London by Tears for Fears in 12 years makes this a truly spectacular event for their fans on what will be a glorious return to Hyde Park."
