kings of leon getty 500 Kings of Leon succumb to pigeon poop, hope to come back to St. Louis eventuallyA pigeon poop problem forced Kings of Leon to cancel their St. Louis, MO show three songs in Friday (July 23), reports KTLA. Apparently the rafters of the Verizon Amphitheater are filled with pigeons and said pigeons bombarded the band members as soon as they took the stage.

]]>Jared Followill (pictured above, second from right) said there was already poop on his pedal and carpet when he took the stage and that he was hit multiple times during the first two songs. “The last thing I was going to do was look up … but if that was only a couple, we must have caught them right after a big Thanksgiving dinner,” jokes Followill. “We couldn’t believe what [opening bands] The Postelles and The Stills looked like after their sets,” Followill says. “We didn’t want to cancel the show, so we went for it. We tried to play. It was ridiculous.”

“We want to apologize to our fans in St. Louis and will come back as soon as we can,” says Andy Mendelsohn of Vector Management. Follow Zap2it and Zap2it Andrea on Twitter and Zap2it on Facebook for the latest TV, movie and celebrity news. Photo credit: Getty Images
