Kings of Leon drummer Nathan Followill broke his ribs in an accident on the band’s tour bus last night. The accident occurred following KoL’s concert at Mansfield, MA’s Xfinity Center, and has resulted in the postponement of their Saratoga Springs, NY show originally scheduled for this evening (August 10th).
In a statement on Facebook, the band wrote that while returning to their hotel following the Xfinity gig, “a pedestrian jumped in front of their tour bus, causing the bus to stop short, injuring Nathan Followill. Nathan is being treated for broken ribs, but is doing well.”
Refunds are being offered for the Saratoga Springs concert, though “postponed” implies they’ll be making up the date in the future. KoL’s next scheduled performance is Wednesday the 13th at New York’s Jones Beach Theatre. See their full itinerary here.
