Kings of Leon cancel a show after bird poos in bassists mouth

Can't make this shit up

Grammy-winning U.S. rock band Kings of Leon cut short their concert last night in St. Louis after a pigeon dropping landed in bassist Jared Followill's mouth, the Riverfront Times reported today.

The band walked off stage at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater after playing just three songs.

The house lights came on a few minutes later, and a venue employee announced that "due to concerns over the band's safety, we are canceling the show. Please file out in an orderly fashion."

Kings of Leon drummer Nathan Followill took to Twitter to respond to messages from fans upset at the cancellation.

“So sorry St. Louis. We had to bail,” he wrote, explaining that the show was stopped because a pigeon had defecated in Jared Followill’s mouth.

“Too unsanitary to continue,” he added.

Later, he blamed the venue for the incident and apologized to fans who had traveled to see the band.

The bassist for opening band the Postelles was also hit with bird droppings during their performance, but they managed to finish their set.

Concert promoters Livenation issued a statement shortly after the incident Friday night offering refunds on all tickets.


are all of KOL germaphobes that they couldn't take 2 minutes to wash it out and play on. At least KOL aren't a metal band (or Guns N Roses) cause the fans would of rioted

Pansy.

The same thing once happened to Cyndi Lauper and she kept right on singing.

I don't understand the appeal of this band at all, from their shitty band name to their sucky songs. And now they have Diva attitudes!

The stage is a pavilion, so I don't see how it's the venue's fault, they're pretty enclosed and underneath a ceiling.

I actually think their name is the only thing interesting about them.

At KoL's show outside Chicago last night, Caleb said "We've made it through five songs" as a joke about the 3-song show the night before

Jesus, man up, take a thirty second break to rinse out your mouth, and get your ass back on stage.

A real rock band would probably be either too high on drugs or drunk to notice a bird shitting in their mouth.

No shit. Send a lackey to Walgreens for some Listerine and finish the show.

Agreed. Actually, a number of the guys have had diva attitudes for a while.

I don't know if there's a band I hate more than the Kings of Leon. Maybe the Killers. It's close.

Re: Kings of Leon cancel a show after bird poos in bassists mouth

I loathe Kings of Leon. They sound like a bunch of jackoffs. Their music is just as shitty as Nickelback, Creed, Seven Mary Three, etc. Generic frat rock douchebaggery.


And as previously mentioned, the same exact thing happened to Cyndi Lauper and she kept on keeping on without missing a step. What a bunch of pansy wussboys.

Re: Kings of Leon cancel a show after bird poos in bassists mouth

Wow, lots of people hating on the Kings in here. Going to see them tomorrow night and would be pretty pissed if they pulled some shit like that at a show I was attending. It's one thing to have a concert get rained out/lightning etc. but to pull the plug because birds keep shitting on you is ridiculous. Clean up, break out a tarp, set it up and play under it - problem solved. A straight up refund of the ticket price isn't good enough either because that doesn't take into account all the money FANS had to spend on transport, parking, food and their time. I like KOL's music but hearing about this made me extremely pissed off at them...

They're just thinking of the fans! How are the fans supposed to drink out of their mouths after that?

Why does the bassist play with his mouth open?
