Kings of Leon postpone March tour until November

Tennessee rockers Kings Of Leon have been forced to postpone their planned tour of Australia and South Africa due to a band member's injury. 

The 'Use Somebody' drummer, Nathan Followill, has undergone surgery on his arm and shoulder and subsequently has to break from drumming to recover. He tweeted an apology to fans on January 29:

"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."

The dates, according to the Frontier Touring Company's website, have now been rescheduled from March 6-27 until:

"November 2011 to allow drummer Nathan Followill to recover from surgery for a torn right labrum and bicep,"
