Kings of Leon cancel PNC Bank & Susquehanna dates

Kings of Leon have canceled the remainder of their current US tour. This of course includes their dates at Homdel's PNC Bank Arts Center and Camden's Susquehanna Bank Center. The official reason is "vocal issues and exhaustion". Due to prior commitments overseas, these dates will not be rescheduled. Refunds available at point of purchase.

This announcement comes in the wake of a Dallas show that was cut short, where frontman Caleb Followill apparently told the crowed: "I'm gonna go backstage and I'm gonna vomit, I'm gonna drink a beer and I'm gonna come back out and play three more songs." The singer never returned.

After the show, KOL's bassist, Jared Followill, who also happens to be Caleb's brother, took to his twitter account to stated: "Dallas, I cannot begin to tell you how sorry I am. There are internal sicknesses & problems that have needed to be addressed. No words." - "I love our fans so much. I know you guys aren't stupid. I can't lie. There are problems in our band bigger than not drinking enough Gatorad".

Just last year the mega rock group canceled another NJ date. Bonus: check out the trailer for Kings of Leon's upcoming documentary below, which features the band doing plenty of drinking and even a little throwing up!
