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.
