Twangy Tennessee-based rockers Kings of Leon have pulled the plug on the remainder of their U.S. tour dates — including an Aug. 9 show at Jiffy Lube Live — following a mid-set meltdown by lead singer Caleb Followill. “I'm gonna go backstage and I'm gonna vomit," he announced during their Dallas show Saturday night, reports Spin. “I'm gonna drink a beer and I'm gonna come back out and play three songs.” Alas, he never made it. According to a statement from the band’s rep, Followill is just suffering from some run-of-the-mill rock-star maladies: vocal issues and exhaustion. The band says it will resume touring September in Canada.
