Los Angeles, Aug 27 - Rock band Kings of Leon has decided to call off two more concerts on their Mechanical Bull tour as their injured drummer Nathan Followill needs time to recover.

The band, also consisting of Caleb Followill, Jared Followill and Matthew Followill, made the announcement in a statement saying that Nathan, who got injured in an accident earlier this month, has been ordered to rest, reports aceshowbiz.com.

After further evaluation, a doctor has ordered drummer Nathan Followill to remain on rest for one more week. The drummer has been on strict doctor's orders to rest over the past two weeks in order to recover from an injury sustained in a tour bus accident earlier this month, the statement read.
