(Newser) – If you were married to a Victoria's Secret model, you'd probably want more time off, too. Kings of Leon have canceled the rest of their US tour so frontman Caleb Followill can rest and recuperate, reports TMZ. "We are so sorry to say Kings of Leon are canceling their entire US tour due to Caleb Followill suffering from vocal issues and exhaustion," reads a band statement. "The band is devastated, but in order to give their fans the shows they deserve, they need to take this break. Unfortunately, the US dates cannot be rescheduled due to the band's international tour schedule." Tickets will be refunded, and the band will kick off their Canadian tour on Sept. 28. Still, this is a better excuse than calling off a show due to pigeon poop. (Read more Kings of Leon stories.)
