KIngs of Leon Cancel US Tour

So incredibly bummed to hear that Kings of Leon have cancelled their remaining U.S. dates. I like Kings of Leon and all, but that's not what's got me bummed. The cancellation means I'll have to once again wait indefinitely to see Band of Horses, whom I've never seen and who were slated to open their show at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center (a mere 15 minute drive) later this month.

Maybe BOH will do something really cool and schedule another NE date a little closer than Darien Lake or Jersey. I would recommend Higher Ground or the Burlington Waterfront Park. F#@k it. Maybe they should just come and play a three-hour SPAC set, as scheduled.
This is the explanation we are given (courtesy of www.kingsofleon.com):

2011/8/01 - Kings Of Leon
We are so sorry to say Kings of Leon are canceling their entire US tour due to Caleb Followill suffering from vocal issues and exhaustion. The band is devastated, but in order to give their fans the shows they deserve, they need to take this break. Unfortunately, the US dates cannot be rescheduled due to the band's international tour schedule. Tickets will be refunded at point of purchase. Tickets purchased online or via phones will be automatically refunded. The band will resume touring in Canada at the Rogers Center in Vancouver, BC, on September 28th. That show was originally schedule for September 14th.
