Kings of Leon cancels remainder of U.S. tour
On its website today, the band Kings of Leon announced it will be canceling the rest of the shows for its U.S. tour. In the statement, the band sites physical ailments suffered by frontman Caleb Followill:
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.
The band was scheduled to make several stops along the east coast, including Boston, Washington D.C. and Saratoga.
The band had already cut a show short in Dallas Friday and postponed its Houston show for Saturday. Recent tweets by Caleb’s brother and Kings of Leon bassist Jared Followill seem to suggest there could be more to the story.
“I love our fans so much. I know you guys aren’t stupid,” he tweeted on July 30. “I can’t lie. There are problems in our band bigger than not drinking enough Gatorade.”
What do you think is the cause of all this trouble?
