Kings of Leon, who had been slated to play one of the most anticipated concerts of the summer at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center on Saturday, August 20 – have cancelled their U.S. tour, including the SPAC date.
The press release about the announcement reads: “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. Tickets will be refunded at point of purchase. Tickets purchased online or via phones will be automatically refunded.”
According to Billboard, “Kings of Leon announced the cancellation of their US tour following an onstage meltdown at a performance in Dallas on Friday night (July 29). Frontman Caleb Followill walked offstage after claiming he was too hot to perform, and the band subsequently postponed its show in Houston scheduled for the following night.”
