Jared Followill confesses: ‘We’ve got big problems’
Kings Of Leon canceled a live performance in Houston, this, past Friday night (July 29) Where Jared Followill (bassist) admitted that the band is dealing with big problems.
The lead singer Caleb, left the stage on Friday that night, after he complained about some vocal issues. He excused himself from the stage, telling the fans that he was heading backstage to vomit and grab another beer. But that he would be back for three more songs. But he never returned, and the audience felt abandoned and very pissed.
Moments after his brother Jared, apologized for the cancellation of the show, and he explained that Caleb was “a little unfit” to continue the concert. Showing a sign of impotence and angriness he told the crowd: “Fucking…hate Caleb, not us.”
As any other date already scheduled on their US tour agenda, the band was supposed to play at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion, but the abandonment of Friday’s night show in Dallas, lead to the cancellation of this performance as well.
Based on a statement taken from the website Woodlandscenter.org, the cause of the abandonment by the lead singer Caleb Followill was due to “heat exhaustion and dehydration”.
The media responses were immediate, and moments after Caleb follow ill, his brother wrote on his Twitter page:
“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 Gatorade.”
More concerts are programmed to happen this week, but there has not been any information that they will be canceled or reschedule . The only show re-schedule already known is the one for Saturday, which will happen on September 22.
The live performances will occur this week in Tampa, West Palm Beach, Charlotte and Virginia Beach.
