Kings Of Leon have postponed their Australian tour that was set to go ahead in March till November. Tweets from band members last week started speculation when Nathan Followill tweeted “Sorry to all the fans in Australia and South Africa. My bum wing needs more time to heal but we’ll be back later this year. Sorry again.” The drummer sustained a shoulder injury while trying to reel in a catamaran sail whilst on vacation late last year.
Then bass player Jared Followill tweeted – “Well, I now have March off. Any ideas for fun? I could always fly down to Australia and party anyway. I need some sun.”
Frontier Touring, then issued a statement to confirm that “the Kings Of Leon tour has been postponed from March 2011 to November 2011 to allow drummer Nathan Followill to recover from surgery for a torn right labrum and bicep”. Doctors have advised that at least three months will be required for Nathan to recover post surgery to ensure the injury doesn’t reoccur.
Ticket-holders should hold onto their tickets until further details are released. A new itinerary is currently being worked up for November and more news will be announced later this week.
