Intoxication and all its side effects accompanied Kings of Leon to their Dallas show last week, ending with lead singer Caleb Followill making an early exit.
“I’m gonna go backstage for a second, I’m gonna vomit, I’m gonna drink a beer, then I’m gonna come back out and play three more songs,” Followill said before peacing out for good.
The show was eventually cancelled with the following explanation:
“It’s not us, it’s Caleb that can’t play. I know you guys fucking hate us…. It’s not our fault, it’s Caleb, he can’t play the rest of the show. We will be back as soon as possible.”
Apologies to the audiences were delivered via Twitter by bandmates Nathan and Jared Followill. “The heat got the best of a few of us,” and “there are internal sickensses and problems that have needed to be addressed,” were among the words used to express the reason for the show’s cancellation.
