Leon frontman breaks silence on gig

Kings Of Leon frontman Caleb Followill has spoken out about leaving the stage mid-show during a gig.

The band's US tour was cancelled after the singer walked off during a concert last week in Dallas, Texas, blaming "excessive" and "unbearable" heat.

When asked the reason for his stage exit, Caleb told celebrity website TMZ: "It's my voice."

He added: "I'm just trying to get better."

The singer also joked about how he planned to heal his voice. "Try not to do interviews," he quipped.

Caleb's exit led to pledges by his band-mate brothers, drummer Nathan and bassist Jared, and cousin guitarist Matthew Followill, to replay the show. But Jared also acknowledged on Twitter the band had "internal sicknesses and problems" that go beyond dehydration.

A statement says the band are "devastated, but in order to give their fans the shows they deserve, they need to take this break". They will return to the road in Vancouver, British Columbia, on September 28. The cancelled shows will not be rescheduled.

The group had to postpone some dates earlier this year when Nathan injured an arm while exercising and the band walked off stage in St Louis last year because of pigeon droppings falling from the rafters.

Caleb told the crowd repeatedly last Friday he was too hot and his voice was suffering. At one point he said he was ill and would be back after taking a few minutes to recover, but he never returned.

Jared tweeted on Monday: "Don't jump to conclusions guys, we're not breaking up."
