The last time the band was slated to be in town, drummer Nathan Followill was diagnosed with pneumonia and the outfit scratched its show. Fans lost their marbles and accused the band of making a habit of dodging out on shows.
John posted to Facebook:
This is our third time we have bought tick, planned the night, and then the show was cancelled. Twice in Cleveland and once in Detroit. This one is is the dagger in the heart. Took off work, paying for hotels, planned the kids for overnight. We just may need to find another band. KOL - come play a dive bar in my home town, we deserve it at this point. Show the great lakes some love fellas.
