Kings of Leon forced to abandon gig due to drunkeness
August 1st, 2011 by Andrew Thomson
Kings of Leon are no strangers to controversy and now they have been forced to abandon a gig due to the drunken Caleb Followill.
The southern rockers were half way through a set at Dallas last night (July 29th) when their lead singer Caleb Followill stormed off-stage in search of more alcohol . He did not return and told fans that he had lost his voice, but the signs indicate his early exit was due to alcohol rather than throat issues.
Bassist Jareb Followill came out and explained to the crowd the situation, “F***ing hate Caleb, not us. I don’t know what to say. 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.”
The band will be sure to back but this incident demonstrates that they did live quite a rock and roll lifestyle on tour which they have been criticised for in the past. The Kings of Leon will continue their tour of America this Summer.
Kings of Leon tour dates are available online.
