PIGEONS SHIT ON ROCK BAND
Damn. I recall when it at least took teargas and riot cops to force a band off stage. Not bird droppings. I would also have wanted a refund, had I gone in the first place, which is highly unlikely.
“Pooping pigeons forced the Kings of Leon to abandon their St. Louis, Missouri, concert after just three songs Friday night, the rock band's management said Saturday. An infestation of the birds in the rafters of the Verizon Amphitheatre bombarded the musicians as soon as they took the stage, according to Andy Mendelsohn of Vector Management. "Jared (Followill) was hit several times during the first two songs," Mendelsohn said of the band's bassist. "It's not only disgusting -- it's a toxic health hazard. They really tried to hang in there," Mendelsohn added. Followill, who describes himself as a "germophobe," said there was already poop on his pedal and carpet when he walked out on stage. The aerial attack began during the opening song -- "Closer" -- when he was bombed in the face. His bass tech wiped most of it off with a sanitary wipe, he said.” (Click here for more and a video of the incident.)
Maybe they should have employed security cats. Click here for cat herding
