Kings of Leon

WE'RE CANCELLING

OUR U.S. TOUR

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.

They suck. Went to see U2 and they were the opening act. Thought it was a high school band. Have no clue how they have made it.

Rehab check in time......
Just a wild guess that you wouldn't hear a member of a band tell an audience to "blame it on the lead singer not us"
( Texas, heat, sure) if the lead was ill with something other then addiction.
That was a frustrated band member...now this.

Big disappointment, not that I don't get to see kola on Wednesday in WPB but that Caleb and the band keep disappointing the fans by covering up the real problem. Caleb has a real alcohol problem and refuses to admit it. I pray he gets the help he needs, in the meantime, stop letting your fans down

That is the second time they cancelled in Pittsburgh. What a crappy band. Amazing how this is the only band that has called off its US tour because of the heat. Jackasses.

poor dude, can't really help if you get sick, but they can't go on without him seeing as he is the voice to their songs. Love them still, shouldn't have thrown ur lead singer under the bus though, *****.
