Kings Of Poo-on

When it comes to bands abandoning gigs, there are a couple of standard reasons which are usually cited, namely ‘technical’ problems, or sickness. Which is why the Kings Of Leon experience on stage last night was so unbelievable... According to reports the God-bothering brothers were forced to cancel their gig after a pigeon pooed into the mouth of bassist Jared Followill. What a shot.

The band were playing the Verizon Amphitheatre in St Louis in Missouri but the moment they took to the stage a flock of pigeons let loose from the heavens. Drummer Nathan Followill posted his thoughts on Twitter: ‘so sorry St Louis. We had to bail, pigeons shitting in Jared's mouth and it was too unsanitary to continue. Don't take it out on Jared, it's the f****** venue's fault. You may enjoy being shit on but we don't. Sorry for all who travelled many miles.’

Kings Of Leon did attempt to play through the poo-storm but three songs into the set they were forced to call it a night.
