Kings of Leon Cancel the Remainder of U.S. Tour

Posted By on Mon, Aug 1, 2011 at 3:40 PM

In the wake of Friday's fiasco at Dallas' Gexa Energy Pavilion, Kings of Leon have canceled the remainder of their U.S. tour. That's 28 dates in all. They'll pick back up in Canada.

A press release reads, "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 is devastated, but in order to give their fans the shows they deserve, they need to take this break." And what do the band members themselves have to say? Bassist Jared Followill tweeted, "Utterly depressed. It's completely out of my hands. Family has to come 1st. If bass solos & backing vocals were more popular, I'd be there." He followed that up with, "Thanks to all my friends, family, & fans. I'm not going to stop working. I'm going to spend time writing songs and looking to the future." Jared was careful, however, to explain that KOL are not breaking up. As was Nathan.

But what if they were breaking up? What if this was "The End"? Why, I bet it would sound a lot like this:

Pro gear, pro attitude
