Kings of Leon fans have be warned to watch for measles symptoms following an outbreak of the illness linked to the band's performance in Washington State on March 28. Health officials from the state have issued an official statement on the outbreak and are encouraging the band's fans to get tested for the illness.

"Public health officials say . . . [a] woman in her 20s became contagious with measles [on] March 26 after visiting a local family with measles linked to an outbreak in British Columbia," a statement reads.

"Measles is highly contagious and can cause severe illness with rash, fever, cough, eye irritation, and can be fatal. The woman travelled to Seattle for a Kings Of Leon concert at Key Arena on March 28, when she also was at the Best Western Loyal Inn and the Wasabi Bistro."

"Anyone who was in those locations at the listed times should find out if they have been vaccinated for measles or have had measles previously. If you're not vaccinated, you can get the measles just by walking into a room where someone with the disease has been in the past couple of hours."
