Kings of Leon just canceled their entire U.S. summer tour in the wake of a Dallas show on Friday that was cut short after lead singer Caleb Followill left the stage to vomit, Rolling Stone reports. A band rep says Followill has been "suffering from vocal issues and exhaustion." But because of the band's international touring commitments, their U.S. shows will not rescheduled. Tickets for those gigs will be refunded at point of purchase, or automatically refunded if ordered online. The band will head back on tour on Sept. 28 with a show at the Rogers Center in Vancouver, a show originally scheduled for Sept. 14.
At the concert, his brothers suggested Caleb may be having problems other than the official "exhaustion" line. On Twitter, bassist Jared Followill wrote, "there are internal sicknesses & problems that have needed to be address" and, "I know you guys aren't stupid. I can't lie. There are problems in our band bigger than not drinking enough Gatorade."
