Kings of Leon

After cancelling a bunch of dates, including Jones Beach, Kings of Leon have cancelled even more including tonight's show in NJ at PNC Bank Arts Center. They still do plan to play Made In America in Philly over the weekend though. Read their latest message in full, below...

MESSAGE FROM KINGS OF LEON:

Kings of Leon will unfortunately have to cancel an additional two shows on their much buzzed about Mechanical Bull Tour. The August 28th show at PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, NJ and the August 29th show at First Niagara Pavilion in Pittsburgh, PA have been canceled. After further evaluation, a doctor has ordered drummer Nathan Followill to remain on rest for one more week. The drummer has been on strict doctor's orders to rest over the past two weeks in order to recover from an injury sustained in a tour bus accident earlier this month.

The band will return to the road on August 31st to headline the Budweiser Made in America Festival in Philadelphia, PA.

Kings of Leon were involved in a tour bus accident en route to their hotel in Boston when a pedestrian jumped in front of their tour bus, causing the bus to stop short, injuring Nathan Followill. Nathan is being treated for broken ribs. The band has already canceled nine shows due to the incident.

Refunds for ticket holders will be available at point of purchase. For up to date information please visit www.kingsofleon.com.

ZZ Top and Jeff Beck also just cancelled some big shows due to injury.

They are probably over the barrel w/MIA, seeing how the lineup is pretty lame this year (of course KOL has a lot to do w/that lameness). Bet they have a substitute drummer for that one.

If this band is BV-worthy, why no news about Train or Nickelback?

They are like 'mainstream indie' - that album that came out in like 2007 had some decent songs on it, the one about keeping her baby

Remember when these guys used to dress like they were in the Marshall Tucker Band? Hacks then and now.

Finally BV reports on music I care about!

Good thing I had tickets for both shows. See you at MIA boys!

Hello Kitty is not a cat.

The iconic japanese cartoon is actually a walking, talking two-legged little girl “with a heart of gold.”

Hello Kitty is a little girl who cheerfully lives in England with her parents and twin sister Mimmy, according to her backstory on the official fan site, SanrioTown.com.

Her favorite color is red and her hobbies include jamming out to her favorite music, eating cookies and her mom’s apple pies, collecting cute things, playing the piano and making new friends.

No, they were always hacky. Just in a different way.

^You should be very proud. It takes a special kind of jackass to celebrate mediocrity

and it takes a special kind of pompous (and unemployed?) dickhead to care

Yeah man, people with jobs are too busy not to listen to kings of Leon, slacker. Hahaha what the fuck.

^Were you actually expecting some kind of clever response from 12:40/1:32? A nitwit who proudly declares his love for this shit band.

I don't know which is funnier, that one would intentionally misinterpret a comment to draw the poster into a useless argument, or that one does not even realize that they are misinterpreting the comment because they are just too dumbass to git it

Posted by Anonymous | August 28, 2014 2:08 PM

I would say neither is funnier than an imbecile who proudly displays his love for Kings of Leon
