All tag results for pigeons
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.
"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!
Animal Planet should never have taken a chance on a show about a rat with wings… and his love for pigeons.
However, the series, which was set to start shooting next month, maybe cancelled before it even begins as city officials of Brooklyn, NY are calling into question the legality of such a show. They claim that the series would violating local gambling laws. The District Attorney's office is hard at work looking to shut the show down.

LOLs! We've GOTTA see this!
"I'm honored to be a part of this monumental show on Animal Planet," says Tyson. "I feel a great pride acting as an official representative for all the pigeon fancier's out there. I want people to see why we love these birds. It feels good returning to the rooftops of the city where it all started for me - New York."
Apparently Tyson has been raising pigeons his whole life, but this series will chronicle his first steps into competitive pigeon racing! Marjorie Kaplan, president of Animal Planet Media, says:
"For years, he has been inspired by these birds that he feels have the biggest heart in the animal kingdom. Taking on Tyson peels back new layers of the remarkable persona and deep humanity of Mike Tyson while also showing us a whole world we never knew existed right on the rooftops of New York City."
But they're rats with wings!
