Kings of Leon cancel U.S. tour: No LI show

There will be no “Sex on Fire” this summer at Jones Beach.

Those crazy Tennessee boys, the Kings of Leon, have canceled the rest of their tour after the meltdown last Friday in Dallas. So that means next Wednesday’s show at Nikon at Jones Beach Theater is a no-go.

Tickets will be refunded at point of purchase.

“We are so sorry to say Kings of Leon are canceling their entire U.S. tour due to Caleb Followill suffering from vocal issues and exhaustion,” the group’s rep said in a statement. “The band is devastated, but in order to give their fans the shows they deserve, they need to take this break. Unfortunately, the U.S. dates cannot be rescheduled due to the band's international tour schedule.”
