Chicago fans of Kings of Leon will have to wait a little longer to see them live. That's because their concert tonight (Jan. 23) at the United Center will not go on as planned due to drummer Nathan Followill being diagnosed with pneumonia.
The announcement about the postponement was made yesterday on Kings of Leon's Facebook page. The band wrote, "Nathan Followill has been diagnosed with pneumonia and is being advised by doctors to take three days of rest."
Not only are they not going to play in Chicago tonight, but they also cancelled last night's Detroit concert. There is some good news. Both shows are not outright cancelled. They have been rescheduled and new dates have already been made available.
Kings of Leon's Chicago concert will now take place March 8, and the Detroit show will happen March 9. Both take place at the original venues. Tickets for the originally scheduled concerts will be honored at the newly announced shows. If you cannot make it, refunds are available at the point of purchase.
As of now, the band is expected to pick the tour back up on Jan. 25 in Broomfield, Colo. with their concert at 1stBank Center. Tickets for that concert are on sale now at AXS.com.
