Kings Of Leon’s managers are attempting to block footage from the band’s ill-fated concert in Texas last week from reaching the Internet, demanding websites pull images and videos.
Fan-recorded phone camera videos from last Friday’s Dallas show, which ended prematurely when frontman Caleb Followill walked off the stage after telling the audience, “I’m gonna go backstage and I’m gonna vomit”, have been taken down from as a result of the purge.

Footage of Followill complaining about the heat has also been removed from some sites after Vector Management bosses claimed the videos breached copyright laws.

Following the Dallas gig, the rockers cancelled 29 dates on their summer tour to allow Followill to recover from “vocal issues and exhaustion”.
