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

This is a common occurance with this band!
They're the American OASIS!


He takes his time at live shows to insult and complain about "new" fans - the "Use Somebody" groupies!

To those who don't know, this isn't the first time this dooosh bag has done this, he always complains and cries like a little girl, its one of the reasons why I don't listen to them anymore and I will never buy their music or go to their concerts not even if it were free, his attitude killed it for me.

Isn't this the band that got all fussy because a bird pooped on them at a concert last year and stormed off stage? Man up guys, you have to be making millions, have some respect for your fans, I bet the crowd was ALOT hotter than you were.

What can you expect from a band with lyrics like these?
"Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh"

To everyone saying it's hot as hell in Texas, yes, it is, but it wasn't that bad the other night during the concert. There was actually a really nice breeze when Band of Horses was onstage. We were all talking about how nice it was out and enjoying the cooler night air for a change. Also, they didn't go on until the sun was gone, so that's not a very good excuse either...

What a bunch of whiny bitches - If the fans could sit out there in the heat, having paid the obnoxious prices for concert tickets these days, then they should've gone on with the show. They think because they've had a couple of hit songs that they're entitled to act like a bunch of babies - A little humility and a little appreciation for the people that bought your albums and, you know, propelled you to where you are now, living the good life, is far more attractive than some man-child that cries because it's hot in Texas in July. At least their true colors and unappreciative attitude is showing - Soon their fans will abandon them and stop supporting them and they'll be lucky to get a summer gig at a county fair.

...Also, let's be real. The music industry is fickle and there are at least a hundred other rock bands out there, begging and pleading to be in their position and get heard. If KoL doesn't play their cards right and cut the bull****, they'll be replaced shortly...
