To give time for Nathan Followill to recuperate from his arm injury, Kings of Leon are forced to postpone their concerts in Australia and South Africa.

Rockers Kings of Leon have postponed the band's upcoming tours in Australia and South Africa, as drummer Nathan Followill recovers from an arm injury. The rockers were set to kick off their trek with a show in Brisbane, Australia on March 8 but according to Twitter posts from Nathan and his brother Jared, the jaunt is canceled until further notice.

Drummer Nathan wrote to fans on Sunday, January 30: "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." His brother Jared confirmed the news, adding in another tweet, "Well, I now have March off. Any ideas for fun? I could always fly down to Australia and party anyway. I need some sun:"

Neither musicians elaborated on the injury, however, both rockers began the band's world tour suffering from ailments - Nathan suffered a shoulder injury while trying to reel in a catamaran sail, while Jared suffered a bloody nose in a swimming accident. Their brother and frontman Caleb also suffered cuts and bruises in a diving accident on holiday in Italy and the fourth Followill, cousin Matthew, broke a toe after dropping a bottle on it last year.

Rescheduled dates had not yet been announced at press time.
