The members of Kings of Leon are talking about their disgusting poop ordeal in which the band was pelted with pigeon feces while performing at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in St. Louis.

"Jared [Followill, the band's bassist] was hit several times during the first two songs," said Andy Mendelsohn of Vector Management. "It's not only disgusting – it's a toxic health hazard. They really tried to hang in there."

Some of the poop even landed in his mouth while he was singing!!

GROSS!!

The singer, who's also a self-professed germophobe said:

"I was hit by pigeons on each of the first three songs. We had 20 songs on the set list. By the end of the show, I would have been covered from head to toe. The last thing I was going to do was look up, but if that was only a couple, we must have caught them right after a big Thanksgiving dinner."

The band's publicist made a statement saying, "We want to apologize to our fans in St. Louis and will come back as soon as we can. No fans got pooped on as far as we know."

LOLz!

    Ozzy bit the head off a bat and these losers cry when a bird craps on them.



  2. 2

    So these guys were supposed to just stand there and get shit on all night just so that people can be entertained? Fuck outta here!



  3. 3

    too bad they make good songs… only that the pigeons dont want to hear em cos they are traumatized by the music and also attention seeker aves wants to be the star of the show



  4. 4

    Maybe they should have explained it to the fans, before they just walked off stage without saying anything.



  5. 5

    if it was that bad, id leave too.
    but id announce to my fans what was happening before i did it.



  6. 6

    toughen up..



  7. 7

    We drove 6 hours to see KOL…I'd have gone up there and held umbrellas over their freakin heads for 17 more songs!! An explanation was called for, though. We would have been more understanding If someone had just explained to us why you walked off stage. Besides, my seats were killer dudes!! I'm still heartbroken!



  8. 8

    HEY!!! ozzy is not kings of leon!!! its a black sabbath!! and maybe better with bit the head off a bat than POOPED by pigeon!! it looks dumb anyway!!…and their image r far away from dumb!

    Wow, you actually have musicians with talent on your site. Too bad for them, as they seem like cool guys. The funny thing is that Widespread Panic dedicated their song "Pigeons" to KOL on Friday night.

    These sorry poseurs need to get the f*ck off any stage they walk on anyway. This is what happens when the hype machine crowns you the new kings of butt rock when you haven't worked hard enough to earn it.
    The birds obviously know something the generic buying public doesn't get.

    a little pidgeon shit never killed anybody………….

    look at nancy grace..



  12. 12

    why couldn't this happen to miley



  13. 13

    The birds did the right thing.



  14. 14

    I love how Perez always praises the people with no talent, but when he actually talks about people WITH talent, he bashes them. Typical…



  15. 15

    they could have atleast apologized to us. some people drove from different states to go see them. LAME.



  16. 16

    pigeons have ears too



  17. 17

    It toooootally sucks for the people that went to the concert!! Hope you get your money back!!
    But they do say that getting pooped on by a bird is good luck… They'll prob win a Grammy this year. Hahaha

    It is fair for them to have left, because it is not right to have to sit there and be shit on all night whilst they played 20 songs. At least they went out there and tried, after they saw their support bands come off the stage covered in the shit. None of the audience got shit on, so they can't fully comprehend the situation.

    I think good on them for apologizing and saying that they will be back! (:



  19. 19

    Even pigeons know that this band is shit.
    Pun intended.



  20. 20

    According to ppl working at the venue, they were just drunk and it was really hot out so they bailed. Outdoor summer concerts in STL are a dumb idea anyway.



  21. 21

    Unbelievable that the manager of this venue hasn't had bird detractors installed, since it is an ongoing problem. No way should the performers have to put up with that.



  22. 22

    Such BS! I've been to 20 concerts at this venue in the past several years. The seats are under the SAME EXACT ROOF as the band, which means that if there had been an "infestation," everyone in the audience would have been affected as well. None of the concertgoers, even those in the first couple rows, saw this alleged "pigeon infestation." I wish journalists (and gossip bloggers) would do some basic fact-checking before continuing to promote this story. Everyone knows what really happened - it was too hot for them and they were too drunk.



  23. 23

    The venue is to blame here for knowingly allowing them to play with an infestation of any sort. It was stated that the first 2 acts had the same issue. They could have continued playing, but I don't blame them one bit for leaving. That's disgusting!!



  24. 24

    If I was getting paid thousands of dollars for an hour and a half of my time in an arena full of thousands of screaming fans, I would put up with the bird shit for that period of time. Bunch of pampered babies used to having the red carpet rolled out for them I guess.



  25. 25

    Who cares, Kings of Leon fucking suck BALLS. God their songs are so whiney and annoying!



  26. 26

    KOL rocks. Can't wait for concert on the 7th. Bird shit is dangerous. Pigeon live and go where the people are. They carry many germs. It's dangerous. The people at the venue should of worked harder to keep birds away. Like the band could of stopped playing so people could chase pigeons away etc. They were probably angry overheated and yeah drunk. Still love you boys.



  27. 27

    I've been to a lot of concert at that venue. This is the first time anyone has cancelled because pigeon poo.



  28. 28

    This guys are so good live to bad people there didn't got the chance to see the whole set..!they rock !



  29. 29

    That's pathetic. When will these prissy losers disappear already?
    A safety hazard? What about the other bands who had no problem completing the set they were paid to perform? The guys are a bunch of entitled, lazy losers.



  30. 30

    I have lived in StL my entire life. I've never even SEEN a pigeon. Especially not at that venue.

    Drunk + Heat = Making up stories to get themselves off stage.
