Kings of Leon put an end to their U.S. tour after a wreck of a Dallas gig, in which lead singer Caleb Followill was deemed "unfit" to finish after complaining from the stage of the heat and barely singing. "For the record, I'm not drunk, I'm just ... hot," he told the audience. "I'm about to fall down over here." He promised the audience he'd be A-OK after he had a backstage puke session and a beer, but the singer never returned. The crowd booed and the rest of the band was left to apologize. Nathan Followill offered "a million I'm sorry's" and said he was "ashamed & embarrassed" by the "fiasco" on Twitter, and bassist Jared Followill tweeted that "there are internal sicknesses & problems that have needed to be addressed" and "there are problems in our band bigger than not drinking enough Gatorade." If only some sugar water could solve life's issues.
