Kings Of Leon have cancelled their entire US tour following the onstage meltdown that occurred in Dallas on Friday (July 29).

Speculation over the band’s immediate future had been rife since Caleb Followill left the stage midway through the show and did not return. They had claimed the incident was down to heat exhaustion, and subsequently postponed a show in Houston the following night.

Now however, the band have pulled all of the forthcoming dates, and they will not be rescheduled, according to Billboard.com.

A statement from the band's publicist read: "We are so sorry to say Kings Of Leon are cancelling 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 a break."

Tickets will be refunded at the point of purchase. Tickets purchased online or via phones will be automatically refunded.
