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.

Vocal issues and exhaustion? You guys are pampered on the road with Will Smith and Aston Kutcher type trailers! Sounds like another lazy band enjoying drugs and the thought of NOT touring. Atleast fulfil your tour obligations you spoiled rockstars. Don't signup for the lifestyle if you cant fulfil the commitments - makes you look like children.

you idiots caleb´s not on drugs, yeah he drinks a lot and he apparently has got some problems with himself but they wouldn´t cancell entire tour only because of that...all they need now is some time and support from they true fans and not this crap from the people who only know two songs from them.

@T-Florida you obviously know nothing about KOL. They have been touring practically non-stop for the last 4-5 years and always put on a great show. If they need a break, they need a break.
