Just two days after getting sick and bailing on a concert in Dallas -- "Kings of Leon" singer Caleb Followill took to the streets of New York for some fresh air, telling TMZ, "I'm just trying to get better".

And with a nearly two-month break before their next show -- thanks to a newly revised tour schedule -- Caleb should have plenty of time to make a full recovery.

RESCHEDULING SHOWS

AFTER TEXAS MELTDOWN

King of Leon Concerts
The band Kings of Leon has not only scheduled a make-up concert for their Houston show that was canceled completely last night, but they are also going back to Dallas to make up the show that ended abruptly on Friday ... TMZ has learned.

KOL will play in Dallas on September 21 and in Houston on September 22. Tickets for the previous shows will be honored, and refunds will be honored for fans who cannot make the new dates. 

This all stems from a battle with the heat for lead singer Caleb Followill. On Friday, a show at the Gexa Energy Pavilion in Dallas was cut short after lead Followill complained the heat was messing with his voice. He left the stage ... never to return.

The band then canceled a show scheduled for last night at the Woodlands Pavilion, located just outside Houston.

UPDATE: Kings of Leon is cancelling their entire U.S. tour

The Kings of Leon concert in Dallas, TX ended early last night after lead singer Caleb Followill left the stage "to vomit" ... and never returned.

Caleb complained of the heat and said he was going backstage to vomit and drink a beer. But when it became clear he wasn't coming back, two of the other band members took to the mic and apologized for the fact Caleb couldn't finish the show.

But they did throw him under the bus before leaving, saying, "Hate Caleb, not us."
