Kings Of Leon Cancels US Tour, Cites Caleb Followill’s “Exhaustion”


Kings of Leon canceled their US tour today in light of Caleb Followill‘s meltdown onstage in Dallas over the weekend. Says a statement from the band: “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.”

While it must suck for fans who were excited to see the band, we imagine it’s probably it Followill — and the band’s — best interest to have a little time off. Jared Followill has been hinting via Twitter that larger problems may be plaguing his big brother, writing “There are internal sicknesses & problems that have needed to be addressed” and “I know you guys aren’t stupid. I can’t lie. There are problems in our band bigger than not drinking enough Gatorade.” Today he wrote of the news: “Utterly depressed. It’s completely out of my hands. Family has to come 1st.”
