8/1/2011 12:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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.

And how the hell are they gonna give the fans "the show they deserve" when they're not re-scheduling the dates they're cancelling because the singer is a wimp who can't handle summertime temperatures?

Exhaustion in this case = alcohol problems. The lead singer walked off stage ****faced in Dallas mid set the other night saying he will return after a tequilla shot and a good vomit only to have the other members announce the show over a few minutes later. 3 days later and the whole tour is cancelled. Sounds like someone needs to grow up and put down the booze.

At last summer's concert in Chicago the lead singer had an encounter with falling pigeon droppings, and was so upset by it the band left the stage and did not return. More like the Kings of Lame-On.

I just don't like them and I really have tried to give them a far chance. The lead singer sounds like he's trying to push out a great big poop. Just not for me.

We have a rat problem here in Chicago and it was our city's plan to use their music during the concert to chase them out. We will have to resort to a less hideous way to rid the rats, Strychnine.
