Pigeon Crap Scares Kings Of Leon Off Stage!!

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooMusic Minute

St. Louis fans were NOT happy when band Kings of Leon walked off stage after only playing three songs this weekend.

Watch the clip (above) as the crowd chants "REFUND!"

Little did they know, the group complained of being hit repeatedly with pigeon feces.

They had been warned of a pigeon infestation in the rafters of the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater and even saw opening bands The Stills and The Postelles, come off the stage "riddled" with excrement, but they decided to go on with the show anyway. The pigeon crap got so out of hand though, they had no choice but to walk off stage.

Publicist Ken Weinstein said, "The band is very sad and upset about it. But no band would play under those conditions. They had to make a game-time decision.

Drummer Nathan Followill tweeted an apology to the fans:

"So sorry St. Louis. We had to bail, pigeons shitting in jareds mouth. Too unsanitary to continue.

Don't take it out on Jared, it's the fucking venues fault. You may enjoy being shit on but we don't. Sorry for all who traveled many miles."

LiveNation later issued a statement saying that all tickets will be refunded.

LOL! So gross! We know the fans were upset, but if pigeon crap fell in your mouth, you'd leave too!

    but if pigeon crap fell in your mouth, you'd leave too!???



  2. 2

    That's understandable.



  3. 3

    Ha Ha FatBoy Mario would have been running around with his tongue sticking out as far as it would reach hoping to get hit.



  4. 4

    LOL. how could they be shitting in his mouth? unless his head was tilted and his mouth was wide open.



  5. 5

    jesus can you be more late!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  6. 6

    My friend Keri and I were at this concert on friday night waited in the extremely hot weather for them for over 2 hours and then they did that.. Everyone there thought it was a joke and sure enough it wasn't! They never said the real reason they left the stage that night we didnt find out it was because of them getting shit on by a bird til the next morning! yes its gross but go brush your teeth and rinse with some mouthwash and continue on!!!!!



  7. 7

    It's not like pigeon feces is full of bacteria and diseases or anything…



  8. 8

    Interestingly enough, they didn't stop playing mid-song. The band finished their third song and all four guys walked off stage at the same time. If it was a big enough problem for them to cancel their show, why didn't Jared run off the stage when the pigeon pooped on his cheek NEAR his mouth??? They also left with no explanation to their fans! You can understand why people were pissed when we had all been sitting out there during a heat advisory (100 degree weather) to hear them.



  9. 9

    I would just like to say, I was there third row, and being that close we could obviously tell if the stage was getting flooded in bird shit. Yes, it had fallen on the band before, but they kept playing for the crowd like any respectable band would. Kings of Leon was my favorite band and i have lost all respect. Be a man, and go wipe it off. Fame has obviously gotten to their head because they think they can bail on a crowd of ten thousand people. You should play every show like it is your last, because they are lucky to be where they are. So disrespectful. You have ten thousand ex fans now congratulations.



  10. 10

    TOTAL WIMPS!



  11. 11

    Not only that, but at least have the balls to say something to the crowd. anything! dont just leave without even introducing yourselves. pathetic



  12. 12

    Understandable. Hope someone filmed Jared getting pigeon shit in his mouth.



  13. 13

    you cut off my comments moron.



  14. 14

    I read about this this morning. That is so gross. I would certainly understand and welcome my refund!



  15. 15

    Looks like they should have called www.birdshitremoval.com



  16. 16

    omg that's disgusting! poor dudes!



  17. 17

    It is understandable. Who would sing with shit in their mouth. Would you emilylouise7678? I dont think so.



  18. 18

    It was drunk and high band members that couldn't take the heat outside. The bird poop was just a stupid excuse.



  19. 19

    wow this happened Friday night Perez.. You are late..Yea but go brush ur teeth , make a joke of it and get on with it. Way to not please the fans



  20. 20

    WE KNOW WHAT FAT BOY PEREZ WAS DOING IF S/HE WAS GETTING SHIT IN HIS MOUTH, HAHA!

    I sympathize with the band…I also have issues at home with pigeons. They are big, dirty birds.
    I am trying non lethal means of control. No comfort for those pooped upon.
    The venue needs to spend the bucks to exclude the birdies. Not cheap, but effective. Just no poison PLEASE!



  22. 22

    How about this brainiac idea? Walk off stage, clean yourself off and then have the stage crew hangs tarps or something similar over your heads, return to the stage and finish your show.



  23. 23

    Wow i hope those people get refunds. Since they were warned, they shouldnt have agreed to the concert. Lameos. Get some balls guys, its just bird poop



  24. 24

    Im with emilylouise7678. Suck it up bitches people paid the show must go on! That is very weak! How bout that refund? Did they give refunds?



  25. 25

    I used to be such a fan of this band but recently their diva behavior is really starting to get on my nerves.

    Your fans waited all day in crowds through the heat for your show only to get bailed on without any explanation 3 songs into the set. There was no need to cancel the concert, they could have moved back or have had the crew put some kind of blanket up in less than 20 minutes if needed be.



  26. 26

    i had pit tickets and was 3 rows from the stage (under the exact same awning thing they were claiming these loose boweled pigeons were packed in) cough cough bullshit! this is the lamest excuse i have ever heard! if you are stupid enough to buy it, you should still be pissed that they didnt have the balls to say a word. ps-the stills bass player got dripped on which appeared to be water from my perspective. that was the one and only time that anything came down from the awning/cover.



  27. 27

    I was at that venue one day before the Kings show. The bands (Doobie Bros and Chicago) never said a word or acted as if there was a problem. They were all over the stage, playing, singing and doing some dancing, never acting like pigeons were bombing them.



  28. 28

    Man the hell up. What pansies… Stick it out for your fans - after all, how much do these assholes make ???



  29. 29

    I'm flabbergasted at the comments here bitching about them being divas, or they should have went on. Here, let me spray diseases in your mouth for an hour. It's no big deal right? How can one society become so damned demanding that regardless of who it is, they DEMAND someone put their lives at risk to appease them. They tried, with being onstage getting pooped on… it wasn't until it was near his mouth that it became too gross. Blame the venue - not the band who didn't want to get Histoplasmosis (disease literally eats away your eye), meningitis, Psittacosis, West Nile, Avian Flu, salmonella, E. Coli… but hey, even if they got sick and died, at least you got your $60 worth, right?



  30. 30

    Re: imsoregistered – ummm ok, if it was so dangerous why would they agree to play? THEY KNEW THE CONDITIONS AHEAD OF TIME and why on earth would they not at least put a tarp or something up to block the poop?
    calm yourself down pal

  31. @v@ says – reply to this


    31

    The venue must know about this problem and should have rectified it. Not telling booked artists is kind of an ambush of a really unpleasant kind. I don't blame the band at all. They'll prob. be cleaning their equipment for weeks on top of it.



  32. 32

    people need to stop bitching. You're getting refunded. Stfu. Pigeon poop is rittled with deseases that can cause nasty infections. If you guys were really fans you would desert them over this one incident. Its not like they will never be back in St. Louis.

    I mean i stood is super cold pouring rain and lightening sourrounded by drunks to see this band yesterday and if they had to cancel because of pigeon shit, i would have been dissapointed, but i would have gotten over it.

    Also, they said they would come back to St. Louis after they finish the tour… so go get rid of those damn pigeons



  33. 33

    work is work. they should have had the vendors grab ponchos or fucking umbrella hats. all performers know THE SHOW MUST GO ON and that is just pathetic. and if he got shit in his mouth take a 5 minute break (have the vendors shoot out some swag/pass out water bottles or something) and clean out your mouth. jesus.

    kings of leon are little girls.



  34. 34

    How stupid. Just move! Problem solved.

    Re: emilylouise7678 – Totally agree!

    It's not like it was a cow or anything! (because they don't fly)

    At least the pigeon hit the musician. Because we all no what happens when sh*t hits the fan :)

    Re: kakyjasper – Spit - rinse with some nice whiskey - good to go

    I lost all my respect for them.

    What a baby's… going to sit on a bench somewhere just waiting if they might get sick… And you know what; only old pigeon poo in big amounts can be dangerous for your health



  37. 37

    Riverport is an outdoor venue. The band knew this! No one else in the crowd was pelted with this supposed bird poo, either. This completely ruins their rock cred..havent any of you ever heard of "The show must go on?" Also doesnt this sound a little bullshitty to you? In the process they are also insulting their fan's intelligence! Im from St. Louis and this is NOT the way it went down. They didnt offer an explanation at the time, they came up with this lame one later. Havent any of you ever cleaned bird crap off of your cars before at the car wash? It's not that big of a deal! What a bunch of big babies and bad liars at that!

    Re: imsoregistered – hahahahaha!

    Lives at risk?
    1. were you there? NO; read peoples comments who were.
    2. pigeon poo CAN be dangerous when it's old and in big amounts. It's not like they were drowning.. just a little fresh bird poo.

    Re: MelissaGirl – so what do you think? They went straight to the emergency room?

    No…

    So they might as well finish they're set.



  40. 40

    Yuck! Pigeon poop carries all sorts of disease. The band should re-schedule for a later date at an indoor venue.



  41. 41

    So let me get this straight, Perez..Lindsay Lohan is a big baby for crying while sitting in a jail cell, but these supposed rockstars are totally justified for cancelling a concert for thousands of people, some of which traveled a long way in the heat to see this show, and they cancel over bird crap? Seriously? Do any of you guys get off of the computer enough to go outside? Ive had a bird poop on me at the zoo, and although at first it's a little gross/alarming, you wipe off and deal with it! Not cry like a little girl and piss about it all day, annoying other people about petty things like this! Do any of you actually have pets? LOL You have to clean up poop all of the time..it HAPPENS! Some of the people posting here sound like complete shut-ins. LOL!



  42. 42

    What was the venue supposed to do? Remove all pigeons from the SKY? As I said, this is an outdoor venue!!! I could imagine the rider for this…lol!



  43. 43

    I was actually at the concert in Chicago yesterday, the band after playing 5 songs said "We will keep playing this concert until pigeons shit on us" … lucky I wasn't watching them in st. louis



  44. 44

    perez I don't think you would leave cause you eat shit all the time so what are you talking about. If I was performing and a pigoen crap in my mouth I would had throw up seriously that is so gross. no good at all.



  45. 45

    If I were a pigeon and kings of leon was playing near me, I'd poop on them too.



  46. 46

    There are endless solutions to a little bit of bird shit! The show must go on, people spent hours waiting for the concert, they need to suck it up!
    Tarps, hats, whatever, they could have handled it easily!



  47. 47

    WANKERS.



  48. 48

    I was at this show. I'm less pissed about them canceling because of poop than I am the way that they handled it. They played 3 songs and abruptly left the stage without introducing themselves or letting the crowd know what was going on. We all stood there for 2 minutes trying to figure out why they left and quite frankly most people thought they were playing a joke. They had someone announce that the show had been canceled due to "safety for the band." We didn't even find out until the next day that it was from bird poop. Next time maybe they'll handle the situation a little better so they don't piss off a mass of people.



  49. 49

    MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMBWWWWWAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAA!



  50. 50

    They could have handled the situation professionally and certainly in the interest of the fans! Boo! They're not that good of a band. They couldn't get handlers to hold umbrellas up for a song or two?



  51. 51

    lol



  52. 52

    What wimps. Their fans are putting down hard earned money to see these guys play. They should have not agreed to do this beforehand or gave refunds when not playing their full set. They just have to play a couple hours or refund the money.



  53. 53

    There's not enough money in the world for me to have peformed under those conditions. Good for them. What's wrong with the promotors and the owners of the venue. I doubt I would have lasted for 3 songs. Pigeon feces are dangerous and carry many diseases.



  54. 54

    Re: poorlittlerichiegirl Oh gee, so they wouldn't disappoint their "diva" fans probably because they knew they would get blasted by the likes of people here. They were getting crapped on and still went on, PLUS full refunds.



  55. 55

    Re: Dusss So it matters whether I could see little flecks on a stage as to whether the situation was gross, disgusting and disease filled? What planet are you from that it's only "old" that is dangerous? Brat.
