According to a report in the New York Times, lead singer Caleb Followill left the Dallas stage during Friday's show, promising to return but he never did.

"I'm about to fall down here because I'm so goddamn hot," he told the audience.

Over the weekend, however, tweets by his brother, bass player Jared Followill, hinted at trouble among band members.

"Dallas, I cannot begin to tell you how sorry I am. There are internal sicknesses & problems that have needed to be addressed. No words," he wrote, adding in another message, "I love our fans so much. I know you guys aren't stupid. I can't lie. There are problems in our band bigger than not drinking enough Gatorade."

Rolling Stone reports the band will head back out on tour beginning September 28th with a show in Vancouver.  Their canceled U.S. tour dates will not be rescheduled. Tickets can be refunded at point of purchase, or will automatically be refunded if ordered online.
