As we previously said Kings of Leon  singer Caleb Followill was dealing with more important condition than a mild dehydration.


On Monday they interrupted the summer tour through the United States because “vocal issues and exhaustion,” that Caleb Followill was suffering from.  The Kings of Leon‘s representative declared to Us Weekly: “The reason for the cancellation of the tour is Caleb is under doctor’s orders for vocal rest. They feel terrible about cancelling. They look forward to getting back on the road at the end of September.”

“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. Unfortunately, the US dates cannot be rescheduled due to the band’s international tour schedule. […] 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. ”  stated the announcement  posted on their website.

Family has to come 1st.”  Before this he declared (on Saturday) that “there are internal sicknesses & problems that have needed to be address”.


An insider of the group said 

“They are trying to get Caleb to go to rehab. It is mostly for alcohol. …they ended up canceling the whole tour… he drinks like a fish.”

Another  source said Kings of Leon never debated Caleb’s drinking as a problem because they all use to consume a little alcohol during their travels.

Caleb, who recently married Lily Aldridge (Victoria’s Secret model) , has been dealing with this problem for some time.

“It’s true. 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 awhile.” said other source.

Sources say Caleb becomes nervous about singing in front of the crowds and drinks alcohol to relax.

“There’s a running joke in the band that Caleb can’t go on stage without having a cocktail first.” said an insider.

Let’s hope Caleb will be strong enough and he will get adequate help to solve this problem and he will continue to sing with Kings of Leon. A lot of music talents  were lost because of drug and alcohol addiction.


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.
