Kings Of Leon cancel St Louis gig after ‘pigeon poop’ drama

This is not rock ’n roll.

There’s all these new bands that have the same whiny sound, nothing distinctive, and lyrically they write like self-obsessed babies.

Now one group is acting like babies.

Kings Of Leon cancelled an outdoor gig in St Louis on Friday (July 23) after a pigeon pooped on bassist Jared Followill’s head.?? reports the band were three songs into their set at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater when they announced that the concert was being halted due to “safety concerns.”

”??No further explanation was given at the time, but drummer Nathan Followill later revealed more details on Twitter.??

“So sorry St. Louis. We had to bail, pigeons shitting in jareds mouth and it was too unsanitary to continue,” Nathan wrote.??

The drummer apologized again, but was bombarded with criticism from the band’s fans.??

Responding to the disapproval, he added: “Don’t take it out on Jared, it’s the ****ing venues fault. You may enjoy being shit on but we don’t. ??“Sorry for all who travelled many miles.”

The incident has inspired the creation of the seemingly hoax Twitter account, Fox2now had originally cited heat as the cause for the cancellation. It is not clear if the concert will be rescheduled.

If it really was pigeon poop, there’s a low-tech solution. Wear a ball cap.
