Kings of Leon Cut Short Show
2011-07-31 by Davey Boy STAFF | 71 Comments

Nashville quartet Kings of Leon have cut short their July-29 show in Dallas due to lead vocalist Caleb Followill feeling "ill". Despite claims during the concert that he was not drunk, comments from brother Jared suggests there is some kind of concern for the frontman.

Admitting that Caleb was "a little unfit" to continue the gig, the bassist went on to tell the crowd "It’s Caleb. He can’t play the rest of the show. We will be back as soon as possible. I know you guys hate us. I’m so sorry." As the crowd grew more frustrated, as did Jared with a parting "F*cking hate Caleb, not us".

Edited footage can be seen on the following video:

That really sucks for the fans watching the band. I kind of feel bad they got cheated out of a show because of a little stomach ache.

KOL is a great band - you all have no taste or appreciation for their early work - it is simple and awesome.

I don't blame them for cutting a show short anywhere in Texas - Yuck!

My friend asked me if I liked Mumford and Sons and Kings of Leon the other day.
I said," Ah, I haven't listened to them much, just a few songs here or there, so I can't say."

I didn't wanna bum him out as he put Mumford and Sons into the stereo in his car lol.

But seriously, this band does suck, and it just shows when they can't even take a full blow to the band like men.

At least have the decency to cancel before a show if you're legitimately sick. King Diamond did that on the one and only opportunity I had to see him and I never begrudged him for that. It's just cleaner than showing up and then disappearing like an asshole.

But yeah, he seemed drunk as shit, so it's only his own fault.
