ROCK band Kings of Leon abandoned a US concert after just three songs because pigeons kept pooing on their heads. The musicians managed to struggle through the first part of their set despite being repeatedly splatted - but the final straw came when the bass player Jared Followill was hit near the mouth by one especially large dropping.
The band, from Nashville, made the decision to leave the stage in St Louis, Missouri, before they were completely covered in excrement.
Their publicist Andy Mendelsohn issued a statement blaming an infestation of pigeons living in the rafters of the Verizon Amphitheatre in the city.
"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 said.
