According to TMZ, a representative for the band released a statement, saying:
“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.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Unfortunately, the US dates cannot be rescheduled due to the band’s international tour schedule.”
The rep says that all tickets will be refunded, and the band will resume touring in Canada on September 28th.
The band Kings of Leon has not only scheduled a make-up concert for their Houston show that was canceled completely last night, but they are also going back to Dallas to make up the show that ended abruptly on Friday … TMZ has learned.
KOL will play in Dallas on September 21 and in Houston on September 22. Tickets for the previous shows will be honored, and refunds will be honored for fans who cannot make the new dates.
This all stems from a battle with the heat for lead singer Caleb Followill. On Friday, a show at the Gexa Energy Pavilion in Dallas was cut short after lead Followill complained the heat was messing with his voice. He left the stage … never to return.
The band then canceled a show scheduled for last night at the Woodlands Pavilion, located just outside Houston.
