Kings of Leon cancels Pittsburgh concert

Rock band Kings of Leon

The Kings of Leon show scheduled for Aug. 29 at First Niagara Pavilion in Burgettstown has been cancelled.

On Aug. 26, the band announced that two more shows, including the Pittsburgh date and one Aug. 28 in Holmdel, N.J., had been added to the nine already cancelled after drummer Nathan Followill was injured earlier this month.

Followill broke some ribs when the band's tour bus was forced to stop abruptly to avoid hitting a pedestrian who jumped in front of the bus after a show in Boston. A doctor has ordered Followill to rest for one more week, according to a news release.

The band is now scheduled to return to the road on Aug. 31 to headline the Budweiser Made in America Festival in Philadelphia.

Refunds for ticket holders will be available at point of purchase. Details: 800-745-3000 or www.livenation.com
