Kings of Leon cancel U.S. tour

Announcement follows truncated Dallas show on Friday

After a rough date in Dallas on Friday, the Kings of Leon have canceled the remaining 28 shows on their U.S. tour, the band announced Monday.

Canceled shows will not be rescheduled, and the band is offering refunds for all dates through Sept. 28, which includes scheduled stops at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in Irvine, Calif., and Jones Beach in New York.

At last Friday’s show, frontman Caleb Followill left the stage early, complaining of heat-related issues with his voice, and a subsequent statement from the band’s publicist blamed the cancellation on “vocal issues and exhaustion.” More ominously, Kings’ bassist Jared Followill tweeted Saturday, “There are problems in our band bigger than not drinking enough Gatorade.”

The Tennessee band broke into the majors in 2008, when album “Only by the Night” went double platinum; single “Use Somebody” won the 2009 Grammy for record of the year. The group’s most recent record, “Come Around Sundown,” was released in October.
