Kings of Leon interrupted a concert Friday in Dallas, Texas subsequent to guide performer Caleb Followill informed admirers, “I’m going to move behind the scenes and I’m gonna vomit, I’m gonna drink a beer and I’m gonna come back out and play three more songs.”
The rocker by no means came back to the stage, that pushed the other members of this rock band to say sorry to the viewers. “Caleb’s just a little unfit to play the rest of the show,” explained bassist Jared Followill. “We love you guys so much, but I know you guys fucking hate us. I’m so sorry. It’s really not our fault, it’s Caleb. He can’t play the rest of the show. We will be back as soon as possible.”
Even though Caleb Followill has revealed that the cause he quit the stage was because of heat, fatigue and also lack of fluids, his sibling Jared’s remarks on Twitter after the episode suggest that Caleb’s tendencies may be part of a larger issue in the music group. Soon after apologizing again, Jared published “there are internal sicknesses & problems that have needed to be address” and also “I know you guys aren’t stupid. I can’t lie. There are problems in our band bigger than not drinking enough Gatorade.”
This is a common endeavor that other bands are also pursuing. It’s not unusual for singers and other band members to have health problems or other issues which prevent them from singing. Caleb’s problem was health related but we cannot say for sure if that was the only reason for his behavior.
