Kings of Leon May Be Breaking Up
There was drama at the Kings of Leon concert Friday night. The lead singer, Caleb Followill, walked out mid-concert because it was ‘too hot’. He told the crowd, ‘I’m going back stage for a second, I’m gonna vomit, drink a beer and come back and play three songs.’ But he never did. The rest of the band got really angry when he didn’t return and told the crowd how they really felt about Caleb. Jared Followill, Caleb’s brother and bandmate, told the crowd that it wasn’t their fault and they promised to be back as soon as possible. He kept saying to hate Caleb, and not them. They canceled their gig in Houston the next night.
Jared started tweeting Friday night. He said, ‘Dallas, I cannot begin to tell you how sorry I am. There are internal sicknesses & problems that have needed to be addressed. No words.’
He also tweeted, ‘I love our fans so much. I know you guys aren’t stupid. I can’t lie. There are problems in our band bigger than not drinking enough Gatorade.’
The band’s manager released a statement, blaming Caleb’s disappearing act on his seizing vocal cord. They have rescheduled both shows.
