Kings of Leon cancel remainder of U.S. tour

The Kings of Leon have canceled the remainder of their summer tour after a show in Dallas on Friday that was cut short after lead singer Caleb Followill left the stage to vomit. 

According to a representative from the band, Followill has been "suffering from vocal issues and exhaustion," and the band has chosen to cancel the tour rather than play subpar shows for their fans.  "The band is devastated, but in order to give their fans the shows they deserve, they need to take this break," the statement said, going on to note that tickets will be refunded.

"I love our fans so much," Jared Followill said Saturday on Twitter. "I know you guys aren't stupid. I can't lie. There are problems in our band bigger than not drinking enough Gatorade."
Whatever the issues, no one should "jump to conclusions," Jared tweeted Monday. "We're not breaking up."  

According to US Weekly, the band are now concerned about Caleb' 'out of control' drinking.

A source said on Wednesday: ''Caleb's drinking is out of control and they are trying to get him into rehab. It's a dark demon he has been fighting for a while.'' 

The band will head back out on tour on September 28th with a show at the Rogers Center in Vancouver, a show originally scheduled for September 14th.
