Kings of Leon

RESCHEDULING SHOWS

AFTER TEXAS MELTDOWN

7/31/2011 6:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

King of Leon Concerts
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.

UPDATE: Kings of Leon is cancelling their entire U.S. tour

I'm gonna try the the same excuse next time I can't perform for my wife. It's the heat honey, sorry. I'll also give her a ticket to another performance, maybe.

This band sucks! I can't believe anyone would want to go to their concert. 1 hit wonder. The guy is an alcoholic. To many beers and red wine not the heat. They should pack up and not come back.

Texas is like hell's oven on full blast right now. Both of those venues are amphitheaters. If you are not used to this kind of heat and don't know what to do to keep it from getting to you, you can be in real trouble. It was not a bright idea to book into an outdoor venue in July in Texas.

I can't wait for this band to GO AWAY! Any excuse not to do a show...a bird **** on me/it's too hot...cry me a freakin river. If they had any class the show would go on. Other performers have gone on with brain hemorrhages and broken ankles. Suck it up jackasses or go back to work at McDonalds

Does somebody care? Most people figured that they'd never hear from these knuckleheads again after their one hit.

It IS hotter than hell in TX, ie the high is 110 on Tuesday, and even at night it's in the upper 90s. Imagine being on a stage in 95 degree weather, with lights on you, jumping around, and likely on drugs or alcohol to boot. Yikes.

This band is like Creed and the many other bands before them. A single song hooks the many morons out there into liking them. Then it becomes cool to hate them. Ive hated them since day one.
