Kings of Leon has pulled the plug on their U.S. tour.
“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,” a rep for the band told JustJared.com. “The band is devastated, but in order to give their fans the shows they deserve, they need to take this break.”
“Unfortunately, the US dates cannot be rescheduled due to the band’s international tour schedule. Tickets will be refunded at point of purchase. Tickets purchased online or via phones will be automatically refunded. The band will resume touring in Canada at the Rogers Center in Vancouver, BC, on September 28th. That show was originally schedule for September 14th,” the rep concluded.
“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 added.
The docu kicks off at the annual Followill family reunion in the back woods of Talihina, Oklahoma, where the boys return to their roots and unwind with their family. First-time director and Followill friend Stephen C. Mitchell weaves personal home videos, unedited interviews and behind-the-scenes footage of the band’s journey from their small-town beginnings — spent in poverty and touring the Bible Belt with their father, a Pentecostal evangelist minister, and their devout mother — to living the rock star dream.
Fine out more about the Grammy Award-winning band in Talihina Sky: The Story of Kings of Leon, which will premiere on Showtime on Sunday, August 21 at 10 PM ET/PT.

Caleb, 29, brought along his wife Lily Aldridge, 25, to the show, an artistic dance repertoire performed by Paris’ most talented dancers. The performance marked the first time the famous French show made its way to England.
“Guests started the evening with vodka cocktails, followed by a three-course meal,” according to Vogue.
