NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Kings of Leon singer Caleb Followill is
suffering from vocal problems and exhaustion, forcing the band to
cancel its U.S. tour.
Promoter Live Nation announced the cancellation in a news
release Monday, three days after Followill left the stage mid-show
in Dallas due to the heat on Friday.
Followill's exit led to vows to replay the show by his brothers,
Nathan and Jared, and cousin Matthew on Twitter. But Jared
Followill also acknowledged the band has "internal sicknesses &
problems" that go beyond dehydration that must be addressed.
A statement says the Nashville, Tenn., band is "devastated, but
in order to give their fans the shows they deserve, they need to
take this break." They'll return to the road in Vancouver, British
Columbia, on Sept. 28.
