Last night, Kings Of Leon were playing St Louis, when an unexpected and interesting event happened: A pigeon pooped in Jared Fallowill's mouth.
Now, however funny that might be, it's clearly not pleasant. You might want to nip off stage, have a quick gargle, maybe drink something to take the taste away. A brief intermission - or possibly just leave the other guys to get on with it while you took care of the mouth.
The Kings Of Leon, though, decided that this was such a terrible thing they trooped off the stage, and didn't come back on.
Three songs in to the set, mind. This Is Fake DIY reports they took to Twitter:
“So sorry St. Louis. We had to bail, pigeons shitting in jareds mouth and it was too unsanitary to continue,”Was the band really convinced that if they'd stayed on stage, they would have continued to eat bird poo? If things were that bad, wouldn't they have spotted it during soundcheck?
“Don't take it out on Jared, it's the ****ing venues fault. You may enjoy being shit on but we don't. Sorry for all who travelled many miles.”
