- Kings of Leon have canceled the remainder of their summer U.S. tour. The band’s Friday show in Dallas was cut short when frontman Caleb Followill left the stage due to what he says was a combination of lost voice and exhaustion, which are the reasons given for canceling the rest of their dates, including an Aug. 9 stop at Jiffy Lube Live. "The band is devastated, but in order to give their fans the shows they deserve, they need to take this break,” a press release said. Drummer Nathan Followill insisted the band is not breaking up.
- Jay-Z and Kanye West’s “Watch the Throne” tour is still happening, the dates have just been shuffled around. The previously scheduled Sept. 29 concert at Verizon Center is now set for Nov. 3. The presale starts at 10 a.m. today. Meanwhile, Jay-Z shot down rumors that the future tourmates are feuding over creative differences, primarily that Kanye wants a flashy production and Jay-Z wants to keep things more basic.
