    Ready for "Sex on Fire?" It is time to "Use Somebody?" Yes. It's Kings of Leon x Fred Armisen = "Unstaged!" Get your "Supersoaker" ready!

    American Express has confirmed the next installment of the popular "Unstaged" live stream series will be Kings of Leon directed by SNL alum and Portlandia star Fred Armisen, with the concert taking place on August 9 in London. The show will be streamed globally as a live VEVO event on YouTube at 9pm GMT, 4pm New York and 1pm in LA.

    The pairing will represent the 13th installment in the series and is hot on the heels of Vampire Weekend's show, directed by Steve Buscemi.

    Leading up to the actual gig, fans can check out exclusive content at AmexUnstage.

    Mechanical Bull, the long-awaited follow-up to 2010's chart-topper Come Around Sundown is due in late September, so this show may offer more nuggets of new material, besides the already-released "Supersoaker."
