Isle of Wight Festival headliner postpones London show

The 2011 Isle of Wight Festival could be the next opportunity fans of Kings of Leon get to see the band live in the UK.

Earlier this week, the Nashville rock band were set to perform at the O2 Arena, but a fire on the group's tourbus led to delays and the postponement of the gig.

Although reports claims the band will be looking to reschedule the gig early in the new year, Kings of Leon may not be able to find time to come back to the UK before their headlining slot at the Isle of Wight Festival.

A spokesman for the band said every effort had been made to get the show underway but there was not enough time to get the venue ready after the fire was put out.

Jared Followill from the band took to his new Twitter page - which already has more than 3,350 followers - to apologise for having to postpone the London gig.
