What is this shit? That’s what Kings Of Leon must have been asking themselves Friday night when their show in St. Louis’ Verizon Amphitheater was interrupted by a flock of local pigeons, who showered the band with bird poop. According to this Billboard story, the opening bands, The Postelles and The Stills, suffered the brunt of it, and came offstage dripping with bird droppings. The Kings of Leon could only perform three songs, before they decided to flee the stage.
“We couldn’t believe what The Postelles and The Stills looked like after their sets,” said KOL bassist Jared Followill. “We didn’t want to cancel the show, so we went for it. We tried to play. It was ridiculous.” Those birds were harsh critics.
Fans who were in attendance may be able to seek a refund with Live Nation.
