Kings of Leon Cancel US Tour

Kings of Leon have decided to cancel their US tour. The following statement was posted on the band’s website:

“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 scheduled for September 14th.”

Recently, while the band was in Dallas, Caleb Followill reportedly had a meltdown on stage due to heat exhaustion and dehydration. A day after the group’s show, bassist Jared Followill tweeted, “I 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.”
