Fans who attended a recent Kings Of Leon show in Seattle may have been exposed to the measles. According to Spin.com, the Washington state health department has listed Kings of Leon’s March 28th show at the city’s Key Arena as a source of possible measles exposure. The department’s report stated that a woman attending the show had become contagious with the virus two days earlier. Fans who were at the show or other possible exposure locations are being advised to make sure that they’ve been vaccinated against the disease.
- People who aren’t sure if they’ve been vaccinated and think they may have been exposed are advised to contact health professionals as soon as possible — but are warned to not show up unannounced at a doctor’s office or health facility due to the possibility of exposing others.
- Although measles is relatively rare because most people are vaccinated, it’s highly contagious if you’re not immune can even lead to death.
- Kings Of Leon are touring behind 2013’s Mechanical Bull album, which features the group’s latest single, “Temple.”
- The band has three more dates in Tulsa, Oklahoma on Tuesday (April 8th), The Woodlands, Texas on Thursday (April 10th) and New Orleans on Friday (April 11th) before heading to Europe.
- They’ll be back to headline the closing night of Lollapalooza on Sunday, August 3rd at Chicago’s Grant Park.
