Kings Of Leon cancel gig after Caleb Followill's 'drunken' rant

Kings Of Leon cancel gig after Caleb Followill's 'drunken' rant

Oh no, it sounds like someone had a few too many beers. Poor Caleb Followill caused a bit of a stir during a Kings Of Leon gig in Texas last night, when he appeared ‘drunk’ on stage and told the band’s audience that he was “about to fall down”.

The 29-year-old clearly had forgotten about that pesky little thing called the camera phone though – and obviously didn’t bank on someone recording the whole thing and sticking it up on YouTube. But obviously they did and in one of the videos, Caleb can be heard saying, “My voice is completely 100 percent wrong. I’m sorry… Do you know what? I’m going to drink some beer and I’m going to drink some tequila and I’m going to have a good time and for the record I’m not drunk… I’m just f****** hot.”

Eek! We can’t even imagine what all those Kings Of Leon fans must have been thinking at that moment.

Calbe went on, “I’m about to fall down here because I’m so goddam hot. I have no goddam idea what the f*** is going on, all I know is that I’m married to the prettiest f****** girl in the whole world. 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.”

Hmm, not drunk you say, Caleb?

And that was the last anyone in the crowd saw of Caleb - and it was left to his brother, fellow band-member Jared, to apologise to fans for the lack of a show. Jared announced, “We are so unbelievably sorry, there’s no words night now, honestly beyond our control. Caleb's just maybe a little unfit to play the rest of the show. We’re so sorry guys, we love you all so much. I know you guys f****** hate us, I can’t apologise enough. It’s really not our fault. He can’t play the rest of the show. We will be back as soon as possible. F****** hate Caleb, not us.”

Er, this doesn’t sound too good at all does it? In fact, it sounds very, very bad. Later, Jared took to Twitter to continue apologising. He wrote, “Dallas, I cannot begin to tell you how sorry I am. There are internal sicknesses & problems that have needed to be addressed. No words.”

Wow, in all seriousness, we hope Caleb is okay and this isn’t something that happens often. Fingers crossed the boys are sorting it out. Caleb, you guys are far too good live to stop performing - so please feel better soon.
