‘Kings Of Leon’ Frontman Tells Crowd He’s Going “Backstage To Vomit,” Then Cancels Concert
Followill whined that he was sick and overheated as a result of the temperatures reaching 90 degrees, “My voice is completely 100-percent wrong, I'm sorry. I'm about to fall down here because I'm so goddamn hot.”
He also said, “I'm gonna go backstage for a second. I'm gonna vomit, I'm gonna drink a beer and I'm gonna come back out here and I'm gonna play three more songs.”
When Caleb didn't return, guitarist and brother Jared Followill apologized to the crowd, “I know you guys f-king hate us. It's really not our fault. We will be back as soon as possible. F-king hate Caleb, not us.”
Jared also tried to do some damage control on his Twitter, “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”
Caleb's brother and the band’s drummer, Nathan Followill tweeted, “So sorry Dallas, your heat got the best of a few of us. I’m so sorry for the inconvenience of all this bullsh*t. We’ll be back soon.” He later added, “Not so good morning 4 me today. Ashamed & embarrassed by last nights fiasco. Can’t apologize enough, utterly gutted. A million I’m sorry’s.”
Saturday's scheduled performance in Houston was canceled.
The Dallas show has been rescheduled for September 22.
This isn't the first time the band has canceled a concert, last July the prima donna band of brothers abandoned their show in St. Louis after they complained about pigeon poop falling from the rafters at the Verizon Amphitheatre.
Maybe if heat is an issue, you shouldn't schedule a Dallas concert in July. Oh and by the way, Mick Jagger is 68-years-old, taking his Geritol and still kicking ass on stage.
