MELBOURNE, Australia (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — 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.
According to an announcement by the Frontier Touring Company, doctors have advised that at least three months will be required for Nathan to recover post surgery to ensure the injury doesn’t reoccur.
The injury has, at this stage, led to the postponement of Australian and South African tour dates for Kings Of Leon.
Nathan said of the postponement, “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,” according to the press release.
A new itinerary is currently being secured for November in Australia and will be advised to fans this week.
