Less than a week after launching their nationwide tour in Orange Beach, Kings of Leon abruptly cancelled their tour.
Trouble started Friday when they cut the Dallas TX show short after lead singer Caleb Followill told fans “I’m gonna go backstage and I’m gonna vomit I’m gonna drink a beer and I’m gonna come back out and play three more songs”.
The next night’s show in Houston was cancelled with apologies and frustrations tweeted all day, like this one from bassist Jared Followill “There are problems in our band bigger than not drinking enough Gatorade.” Ouch!
Today comes the announcement of the tour cancellation because Singer Caleb Followill is reportedly suffering from “vocal issues and exhaustion,” The tour is set to resume in Vancouver September 25th.
Here’s a fan video from the Dallas show, interestingly, Caleb sounds like a lot of us on the Gulf Coast, who live down by the water (cough cough, ack)
