Saint Louis - Rock band Kings Of Leon left the stage after performing only a couple of songs on Friday because a pigeon had pooped on the bass player.
The band announced it was ending the concert, at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in St Louis on July 23, because of “safety concerns.”
Gigwise reported that drummer Nathan Followhill later wrote on Twitter, “So sorry St. Louis. We had to bail, pigeons shitting in Jared’s mouth and it was too unsanitary to continue.”
Followhill had been hit several times already when a particularly large splat landed on his face near his mouth, reported The Daily Mail.
Kings of Leon manager Andy Mendelsohn said: “On the third song, when he was hit in the cheek and some of it landed near his mouth, they couldn't deal any longer. It's not only disgusting, it's a toxic health hazard. They really tried to hang in there.”
The band had been warned about the pigeon situation before they went on stage, and members of the opening band The Postelles and The Stills had pigeon excrement on them when they finished performing.
Many fans had travelled long distances to see the band, and were upset about the musicians leaving the stage. The band’s manager said they would be back as soon as possible.
Kings Of Leon are currently on a US tour.
