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.

It amazes me that so many people who call themselves KOL fans could be so quick to go straight for their throat. I know it is a huge dissapointment that the US summer tour was cancelled, (My Wife got us tickets for my birthday) but many good bands have cancelled tours in the past. It's not like KOL makes a habit of it, give them a break! I'm pretty sure they will find a way to make it up to their fans. What they need right now is support from their true fans. I will be waiting for the next US tour, and when the tickets are released for sale I will buy them!

Can somebody please explain to me why this one hit wonder group is still worthy enough to be talked about? I mean just really, really break it down for me because I seriously don't understand.

Exhaustion= drug problem! Pathetic. Even poor old Meat Loaf passed out on stage and came back. He's like triple Caleb's age. Caleb, you are sounding like a whiny baby. Man up!

I'm a huge KOL fan and was really looking forward to their show in Charlotte. I was totally bummed when they cancelled the rest of their tour. Anybody that thinks they're one hit wonders are clueless.

I was at the Dallas show and saw the meltdown, but I have to say I respect Caleb's brothers for coming back on stage and apologizing. They also promised they would be back to Dallas real soon. Two days later it was announced KOL were keeping their word and the concert was rescheduled for Sept. 21. Now I'm reading the whole tour is cancelled but they will be playing in Canada Sept. 28. Something's not right! Are they coming back to Dallas as they promised?
