Kings of Leon Cancel Tour
On Friday night in Dallas, Kings of Leon walked off stage earlier than expected after vocalist Caleb Followill told the Dallas audience, “I’m about to fall down here because I’m so goddamn hot.” Younger brother Jared Followill later tweeted, “Dallas, I cannot begin to tell you how sorry I am. There are internal sicknesses & problems that have needed to be addressed. No words.” A short while later he added, “love our fans so much. I know you guys aren’t stupid. I can’t lie. There are problems in our band bigger than not drinking enough Gatorade.” Now the group has announced that the it is cancelling the remainder of its current tour.
In a statement the band details, “We are so sorry to say Kings of Leon are canceling their entire US tour due to Caleb Followill suffering from vocal issues and exhaustion. The band is devastated, but in order to give their fans the shows they deserve, they need to take this break. Unfortunately, the US dates cannot be rescheduled due to the band’s international tour schedule. Tickets will be refunded at point of purchase. Tickets purchased online or via phones will be automatically refunded. The band will resume touring in Canada at the Rogers Center in Vancouver, BC, on September 28th. That show was originally schedule for September 14th.”
A short while ago, Jared added via Twitter, “Don’t jump to conclusions guys. We’re not breaking up.”
