I’m sure you’ve all heard about the recent Kings Of Leon fiasco at their concert in Dallas, if you haven’t seen the video you can watch it here. Frontman Caleb Followill walked off the stage and never returned to finish the show, since that time the Kings have decided to cancel the rest of their US tour due to Caleb’s “exhaustion.” However, it appears there are bigger problems in the band than just exhaustion. Caleb’s fellow band members are concerned…get the story here.
It appears that Kings Of Leon have urged Caleb to enter rehab and that his drinking is “out of control.”
Although the band has squashed break up rumors, it seems that Caleb’s drinking problem has become a major issue in the band.
Caleb’s brother and Kings of Leon drummer Nathan Followill tweeted: “Bummed about the tour not happening. So sorry 4 all the fans. We just need some rest. Thanks 4 understanding. WE ARE NOT BREAKING UP!”
According to NME.com who quoted a recent report from US weekly, a source has said:
“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.”
However, a spokesperson for the band commented:
“The reason for the cancellation of the tour is Caleb is under doctor’s orders for vocal rest. They feel terrible about canceling. They look forward to getting back on the road at the end of September.”
