Kings of Leon may never live down the fact that they played a show where a pigeon pooped into the mouth of their bass player. But they only have themselves to blame—instead of covering up the story, drummer Nathan Followill took to Twitter to give an account of what happened, and laughter was heard ringing out across the land.
A tersely worded statement issued by the group was critical of the Verizon Amphitheater in St. Louis where the incident occurred, and fans probably didn’t expect them to return to the scene of the crime. But, in a surprise twist to the story, Kings of Leon are coming back to St. Louis, and they are playing the same venue once again.
The pigeons of Missouri will no doubt be delighted by this news, and this may end up being one of the few shows in rock music history where the rafters of an outdoor venue are watched more closely than the band. Tickets are on sale for a mere $10, while folks who attended the original pigeon fest can get in for free.
