The Kings Of Leon Saga Continues: Bandmates Urge Lead Singer Caleb Followill to Enter Rehab

The fallout from the Kings Of Leon disaster at Gexa Energy Pavilion over the weekend hasn't settled yet.

In a not-so-shocking revelation today, US Weekly reports that the rest of the band are "trying to get Caleb [Followill] to go to rehab," according to a source who also says that the rehab stint would be "mostly for alcohol."

This shouldn't come as a surprise after Followill's onstage meltdown last Friday at The Gexa Energy Pavilion. Kings Of Leon, a band comprised of three brothers and a cousin, abruptly ended their set about 40 minutes in, after lead singer Caleb Followill complained about vocal problems and the heat.

"I'm going to go backstage and vomit and then play three more songs," he said before exiting the stage. He did not return.

Moments later, bassist Jared Followill addressed the audience from the stage, apologizing that the band would not finish the set. "We're sorry," he said. "Caleb can't sing. Go ahead and burn our records. We are sorry."

The band later promised a rescheduled performance set for September 21 at Gexa Energy Pavilion, but yesterday we learned that any plans to return to Dallas already been canceled. In the press release issued yesterday, Live Nation says that all "tickets purchased online or via phones will be automatically refunded."

As an expert in "not sober," I have concluded that this man was not sober.

There goes the "he was just sick and that's part of touring" excuse so many of the band's fans were using.
