Kings Of Leon Cancel U.S. Tour, Say Problems Go Beyond Exhaustion

Following a disastrous Friday night concert in Dallas, during which Caleb Followill left the stage to vomit and never came back, Kings Of Leon has canceled the remainder of its U.S. tour. Their rep says Followill is suffering from “vocal issues and exhaustion,” but the band admits that’s just celebrity BS. How refreshing! The band apologized profusely, with Jared Followill Tweeting, “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. There are problems in our band bigger than not drinking enough Gatorade.” Due to their overseas tour, the U.S. dates will not be rescheduled and the band will refund all tickets. [Fox News]
