Kings of Leon Cancel Tour
The Kings of Leon are pulling the plug on the rest of their U.S. tour -- due to health issues affecting lead singer Caleb Followill ... TMZ has learned.

A rep for the band released a statement saying, "We are so sorry to say Kings of Leon are canceling their entire US tour due to Caleb Followill suffering from vocal issues and exhaustion."

The statement continues, "The band is devastated, but in order to give their fans the shows they deserve, they need to take this break.  Unfortunately, the US dates cannot be rescheduled due to the band's international tour schedule."

The rep tells us tickets will be refunded -- and the band will resume touring in Canada on September 28th.

They were nothing more than a fad to begin with. They were destined to fail. Won't be long now before they're less than a footnote in the music history books.

Too late now dummies! That should have been the excuse after the bird dropping.
My guess is they're afraid they'll get pelted with tomatoes, eggs and whatever else is grown in Texas. I guess they didn't get the memo not to mess with Texas.

I loved how things change. I don't remember a band EVER canceling their entire tour!! Even if they had drug problemss I mean their publicist saying its because of exhaustion is just making them seem like little *******.

The ******* lead singer is a drunk. He came out wasted and when he started sucking he flew the coupe. **** them, **** them, Panzy ass mofos. Meatloaf is 62 years old passed out and still finished his show. Kids nowadays have no work ethic period.
