The band's next scheduled show is Wednesday night (August 13th) in Wantagh, New York, but it is not known yet whether that gig and more will be postponed as well.
Fans were offered refunds for the canceled performance in New York.
Kings Of Leon released their sixth album, Mechanical Bull, in September 2013.
