As we told you lthis weekend, there was some drama going on with Kings of Leon and their Texan concerts.
After complaining of heat exhaustion, frontman Caleb Followill walked off stage and never came back. His brother, Jared Followill, apologized to the fans, admitting it wasn't just the heat getting to the band. In some interesting tweets, he aired their dirty laundry.
Then we learned the rest of the shows in Texas would be cancelled. But now
After abruptly leaving the stage in Dallas and canceling another in Houston, Kings of Leon frontman Caleb Followill and his bandmates have rescheduled their Texas concert dates.
As we told you earlier, Caleb left the stage during their Dallas performance after complaining of the heat.
The band apologized to their fans, with Caleb's brother Jared alluding that there might have been more than just heat exhaustion.
Thankfully, the band has rescheduled the two shows, September 21 in Dallas and September 22 in Houston. Tickets for the previous shows will be honored and refunds will be honored for fans who cannot make the new dates.
Good move, guys. The fans deserved a full show so this will definitely make it up to them. In the meantime, we hope you work on your issues so that this doesn't happen again.

Kings of Leon frontman Caleb Followill got really sick while performing in Dallas Friday night. The temperature was in the high 90s, which prompted the singer to complain of getting "hot."
He then told the crowd:
"My voice is completely 100 percent wrong. I'm sorry.
I'm gonna go backstage for a second. I'm gonna vomit. I'm gonna drink some beer … and for the record, I'm not drunk … I'm about to fall down here because I'm so goddamn hot. … I'm gonna come back out here and I'm gonna play three more songs."
But he never came back.
Bandmate and younger brother Jared Followill addressed the crowd after he left, apologizing to fans.
Exciting news! Now they'll get to reach that many more fans! Good for them!
Showtime has acquired the airing rights to the Kings of Leon documentary, Talihina Sky: The Story of Kings of Leon. The flick was a huge hit at Tribeca Film Festival where it premiered and follows the rise of the band's bros Nathan, Caleb and Jared as well as cousin Matthew Followill from small-town players to superstars!
Check out the trailer (above) to get better look at the flick and then, if you have Showtime, check it ou on Sunday, Aug. 21 at 10 p.m.
Will U be tuning in???
It's so sad to see how many people this tragic loss has affected.
Kings of Leon performed a show at London's Hyde Park yesterday, and took the opportunity to pay tribute to their recently deceased friend, Jackass star Ryan Dunn, who lost his life in a car accident early Monday morning.
Right before playing the song McFearless, frontman Caleb Followill asked the crowd to raise a glass for "a friend of ours who passed away," and then dedicated the song to him.
Check out a clip of the performance (above).
That couldn't have been an easy performance for them, so we have to commend them for being strong enough to perform something in honor of his life.
Stay strong, guys. You're in our thoughts.
And may Ryan R.I.P.
That would be SO cool!
Kings of Leon has shared that the band has been asked by Agent 007 himself, Daniel Craig, to write and perform a version of the quintessential Bond movie theme for the latest installment of the franchise.
In fact, he's asked THREE times!
Drummer Nathan Followill revealed Craig's persistence in a recent interview when the subject was brought up, saying:
Oh shiz! She effing SLAYED all of these!
Genius! Absolutely genius!
During Beyoncé's concert in Nice, France last night, the diva not only performed a variety of her solo material, as well as music from her Destiny's Child days, but she also performed a KILLER medley of Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody, Prince's The Beautiful Ones, and Kings of Leon's Sex on Fire!
Give it a listen (above)! You will NOT regret it!
Good lord, no one can do it like her! And we would have NEVER even thought to put all these songs together!
Hot damn, does it work or what?!
Keep it up, B!
