It has come to our attention that Kings of Leon have just announced that they are cancelling the remaining dates of their US Tour including their scheduled shows at Red Rocks on August 31st and September 1st. It has also been reported that the band will not reschedule the dates due to other touring commitments. This is the second series of dates that the band has cancelled this year.
“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 band, which includes singer, Caleb, his brothers Jared (bass) and Michael (drums) and cousin Cameron (lead guitar), said in a statement. The announcement comes on the heels of the band cutting a show in Texas short when lead singer Caleb Followhill walked off-stage after he told the crowd: “I’m going to go backstage and vomit, drink a beer, and then come back out and play three more songs.” Needless to say, he didn’t return.
While information is still scarce, it can be assumed that refunds for Red Rocks ticket holders will be issued at point of purchase.
