Pigeons Sh*t All Over Kings of Leon

On Friday, July 23rd, Kings of Leon were forced to stop a show in St. Louis because of a “rampant pigeon infestation” in the rafters of Verizon Wireless Ampitheater.  During the band’s third song, bassist Jared Followill was hit right in the mouth, prompting the band to walk directly off stage and cancel the show.  Drummer Nathan Followill tweeted his apologies to the fans citing that the conditions were “too unsanitary to continue.”  Concert attendees have been given a full refund.

Word must’ve spread quickly throughout the music community.  Widespread Panic opened their July 24th show in Boston with their staple, “Pigeons,” in which bassist Dave Schools dedicated the song to Kings of Leon.

Kings of Leon will be making a run through North Carolina in September (09/10 in Charlotte and 09/13 in Raleigh) receiving support from The Black Keys and The Whigs.  Tickets on sale now at LiveNation… Don’t miss this one, folks!
