Caleb Followill, who is the lead singer of the band Kings of Leon, is in hot water with his fellow bandmates after he abruptly left the stage during a concert in Dallas on Friday night. The Hollywood Reporter reports that Caleb apologized to the fans in the audience about being his voice and being hot. He told the crowd that he was going to return to the stage later in the concert but ultimately never did. “My voice is completely 100 percent wrong. I’m sorry,” Followill took his fans at the concert at the Gexa Energy Pavilion. “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.”

Shortly after Followill left the stage, his bandmate Jared — his brother — tried to backtrack his statements by again apologizing to the audience. “We are so unbelievably sorry—there’s no words right now,” he said. “Caleb’s just maybe a little unfit to play the rest of the show. I know you guys f–king hate us…It’s really not our fault. We will be back as soon as possible…F–king hate Caleb, not us.”

With that, the concert abruptly ended. Since the incident, the band has announced that they will be returning the arena on September 22nd. After the show, Jared took to Twitter to apologize once again: “So sorry, Dallas, your heat got the best of a few of us. I’m so sorry for the inconvenience of all this bullsh-t. We’ll be back soon.”
