London: Rock band `Kings of Leon` were forced to stop a concert halfway because of pigeons.
Jared Followill, band`s bass player, was hit several times by pigeons` poop but he refused to continue the gig after a large splat landed on his face.
The rockers fled the stage in St Louis, Missouri just three songs into their set, a news daily reported.
Apparently the rafters of the Verizon Amphitheater were infested with pigeons.
Kings of Leon manager Andy Mendelsohn said,"Jared was hit several times during the first two songs. 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 already been warned about the pigeon situation but were determined that the show must go on, even after opening bands The Postelles and The Stills were covered in pigeon poop as they came off stage.
