Kings of Leon were forced to postpone a Sunday night show in Saratoga Springs, New York, after drummer Nathan Followill was injured during a tour bus accident on Saturday night.
“The band was en route to their hotel after their show in Boston when a pedestrian jumped in front of their tour bus, causing the bus to stop short, injuring Nathan Followill,” read a statement on the band’s Facebook page. “Nathan is being treated for broken ribs, but is doing well.”
Bassist Jared Followill offered an update on the accident on Sunday morning.
