Kings Of Leon Cancel Remainder of American Tour

It appears that things are not well in the Kings of Leon camp. Just a few days after frontman Caleb Followill ditched the stage mid-concert, telling the group’s Dallas fans that he was taking a break from the extreme temperatures to throw up, the group has announced that they are canceling the remaining dates of their U.S. tour.

After the Dallas event, during which Followill told the crowd, “I’m gonna go backstage and I’m gonna vomit, I’m gonna drink a beer and I’m gonna come back out and play three more songs,” the singer’s brother and fellow bandmate Jared Followill, 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….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.

The official explanation for Caleb’s departure was heat exhaustion, with band’s publicist releasing the following statement: “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.”
