Kings of Leon Cancels St. Louis Show After 3 Songs, Says “It’s The F**cking Venues Fault”

Posted: July 24, 2010 at 6:40 am   /   by   /   comments (81)

Yesterday, on Friday July 23, Kings of Leon came to St. Louis. The band is best known for their songs “Use Somebody” and “Sex Is On Fire.” Unfortunately for thousands of fans at their concert last night, not much of a show took place before the band stormed off the stage.

After only playing three songs, the RFT says that the band took off – followed by one of the staffers coming on stage saying “due to concerns over the band’s safety, we are canceling the show. Please file out in an orderly fashion.” After the controversy, the band’s drummer Nathan Followill Tweeted:

@doctorfollowill So sorry St. Louis. We had to bail, pigeons shitting in jareds mouth. Too unsanitary to continue.

@doctorfollowill Don’t take it out on Jared, it’s the fucking venues fault. You may enjoy being shit on but we don’t. Sorry for all who traveled many miles.

So sorry that Verizon Wireless Amphitheater didn’t go and round up all of the birds in the sky before you played your show, Kings of Leon. I didn’t realize that was in your contract. Are there any other requests before you play your next show in Chicago tonight?

LISTEN TO AUDIO FROM THE SHOW! [audio:http://www.reviewstl.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/kol_verizon_wireless_stlouis_birdpoop_07232010.mp3] (15 minute mark is announcement that the show is canceled)

**UPDATE** Read the official statement released by the publicist for Kings of Leon here!

Tonight, July 24, Kings of Leon are playing a show at the First Midwest Bank Amphitheatre in Chi-Town. Keep your eyes to the sky!

    I think it’s shocking! Poor form from artists that so many youngsters aspire to be like…if they don’t want these kinds of things to happen, why are they performing at these kinds of venues? How can it be the venue’s fault? Rather, its THEIR fault for booking this kind of a venue…

  • July 24, 2010 at 7:13 am Aaron

    Go to hell kings of Leon, hope a thousand birds shit on u

  • July 24, 2010 at 7:45 am Alexandra

    They are offering refunds…but are they also going to refund the $11 dollar beers and $14 margs that everyone paid for?? Ridiculous.

  • July 24, 2010 at 7:46 am em

    dude kings of leon sucks they are pussy’s!

  • July 24, 2010 at 7:53 am Matt

    I was there last night. It’s not a bad venue at all. Have they never been outside before or something. I USED to be a KOL fan, but not after this copout.

  • July 24, 2010 at 7:58 am Trevor

    UM yeah, i think i deserve not only my money back for the tickets but also the money back for the tshirt that I wont wear from a band that sucks! Um maybe try to do something about the bird before you cancle the show! Shit I beat cancer as a young child and theses shits cant perform for thousand OUTSIDE?????

  • July 24, 2010 at 8:02 am Matt

    Decided my 6 year old twins were old enough to go to thier 1st concert, and bought the tickets months ago. Kept it a secret until Friday. They love music and were so excited. They waited and listed to the opening bands (very good BTW) only to have their hearts broken by KOL. Nothing is as bad as your son and daughter both crying– not because they were mad — but because they were sad and hurt they did not get to see them play. Closest I am came to crying as a grown man seeing the absolute confusion as tears rolled down both of their faces. What a first concert.

  • July 24, 2010 at 8:06 am Joey

    Maby jared will learn not to keep his mouth open and look up unless he is used to getting loads dropped on his face. In all reality he could have cleaned off the shit and kept playing it would have left a better impression with fans in Stl but we are all getting a refund but maby we should get a free tshirt too. Pigeon shit does cause diseases though… damn pigeons

  • July 24, 2010 at 8:07 am A.C.

    The venue is good enough for thousands of your fans to travel to and pay money to see the show, but not good enough for you to perform for them. I saw Depeche Mode (a much greater band than you’ll ever be) in an open venue, in the heat of August in Houston, and they didn’t seem to mind.
    But your big girl panties on Kings of Leon and grow a pair.

  • July 24, 2010 at 8:13 am Rockopotamus

    Whatever happened to “the show must go on”? They should consider themselves lucky to be touring the country and having the opportunity to be up on stage getting shit on in the first place. What about all of the fans that got shit on by them for being pussies and not finishing the show? This Jared guy is one of the most pretentious assholes out there. I’ve hated this band ever since I read an interview with him where he was whining about how terrible success was. He talked about how he couldn’t stand looking out in the audience and seeing people in the crowd standing around unresponsive until they played one of their hits. DOUCHE!!! Maybe he should take this bird incident as a sign from a higher power and get the fuck over himself already. I have a feeling this is going to be the nail in the coffing of their pathetic career.

    Don’t book outdoor venues then, assholes.

  • July 24, 2010 at 8:23 am tabitha

    I think that they are performers. This is what they get paid to do. If a bird poops in your mouth, take a break, take care of the situation and get back to work. I would be expected to do this at my job. The people who bought tickets had to work for their money to buy the tickets and were let down as if they paid for a big package and no one sent it. I say give them their money back plus some token of appreciation for putting up with the dis-service they were caused. Entertainment or otherwise, business is business guys.

  • July 24, 2010 at 8:34 am Sarah

    I WAS a HUGE fan of Kings of Leon, until I went to this show last night, wasted my time on these so-called “artists” to support their spoiled, overpaid, “rock-star”, douche lord, pussy asses. Just remember where you came from boys when you get all famous and make but loads of money and become too good to do what you love because you can’t handle a little bird poo. Hey Nathan, yes you are right, nobody likes to be shit on, but trust me, I’ve been through worse and I seemed to carry on just fine and guess what, I don’t even have balls due to the fact that I was born of the opposite gender. Hope your happy that you lost a lot of fans you dumb babies. Grow up, get the sand out of your vaginas and play a show like a real rock star would if he got shit on by an f-ing bird!!! I hope your music careers go down the shitter!

  • July 24, 2010 at 9:17 am Stabler

    Ozzy ate the heads of bats with no concern for sanitation. I guess he got a rabies shot later.

    Long live rock and roll.

  • July 24, 2010 at 9:18 am manolid

    Completely justified. What would you do if you had a mouth full of pigeon shit

  • July 24, 2010 at 9:24 am mandy

    bon jovi slices his leg on stage and still finishes his concert and you quit bc of a little bird poo?!? pathetic.
    thanks for my ticket refund, but what about my $60 in gas and $90 hotel room?!?

  • July 24, 2010 at 9:56 am RD

    Manolid, you are an idiot… I would love to have your job, if you think that pigeon shit is justification for quitting. These guys are absolute pussies and there is no reason to ever pay money to watch them again. Get over yourself and play. It’s such a ridiculous reason, I have trouble believing it’s true. For that matter, I would have more respect for them if they would have announced that they were just to f’ed up to play. At least that’s a rock and roll reason to quit, but bird shit…really. You are pathetic. And by the way, high class (sense the sarcasm) for blaming the venue. For God’s sake, Sugarland is playing there Sunday night and I bet they play an entire set without crying like a bunch of little girls…every other band has

  • July 24, 2010 at 10:21 am Jen

    Manolid, I’d rinse with Listerine, and go on…I’m getting paid millions of dollars to perform because that’s my JOB. Ozzy Osborne bit the head off a bat, Pete Townshend impaled himself on his own whammy bar, Kings of Leon got a little crap on them…and then ran away. What a bunch of pansies.

  • July 24, 2010 at 10:30 am kels

    this concert was total bullshit. they made us sit through that 90 degree heat for like 4 hours before they cancelled the show. both the opening acts played despite the bird shit problem. smh

  • July 24, 2010 at 10:59 am Rich

    Seriously? The poser fans who are dumping KOL because Jared didn’t want shit in his mouth are dumb. How about I let birds shit all over you at YOUR job. Screw you guys. KOL rocks.

  • July 24, 2010 at 11:18 am RD

    Rich, it wasn’t like it was an attack of the pigeons. The pansy got shit on once. You must put a lot of gel in your hair…

  • July 24, 2010 at 11:25 am Christina

    You booked this show as an OUTDOOR venue You can’t control the birds and the bees!!! It was bird poop GO WASH IT OFF OR TAKE A BREAK TO CLEAN UP AND IF IT WAS MY THE MOUTH THEN USE SOME MOUTHWASH BRUSH YOUR TEETH AND GET THE SHOW BACK ON TRACK!!! SORRY THAT WAS A VERY LAME EXCUSE FOR THOUSANDS OF YOUR FANS WHO PAID TO SEE & HEAR YOU! KINGS OF LEON JUST LOST THOUSANDS OF FANS!!! I DON’T EVEN WANT TO HEAR THEM ON THE RADIO, WHEN I DO ALL I CAN SAY IS WHAT LOSERS THEY HAVE NO RESPECT FOR THEIR FANS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    VERY UPSET AND DISAPPOINTED!!!

  • July 24, 2010 at 11:27 am unwpi

    What would I do? Spit it out. Wash my mouth out and get on with what I was doing. I mean did he cut anything ? Break anything? Death threats? Bomb threats? Nope, the bird was trying to kill him.

  • July 24, 2010 at 11:39 am Dogheart

    What would I do? I don’t know…put on a hat? Move to a different section of the stage? Have the crew construct a small awning to stand under? Something? Something besides storming off the stage like some some sort of petulant child.

  • July 24, 2010 at 11:58 am Durr

    I can quite honestly say that if I was getting paid good money to perform for thousands of fans, some bird shit wouldn’t deter me much. “pigeons shitting in jareds mouth. Too unsanitary to continue.” What? You don’t have bottles of water? Bullshit. Fuckin spoiled brats.

  • July 24, 2010 at 12:06 pm Julie from St Louie

    I saw Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers at this same venue the week before. Mike Campbell left the stage to see a doctor due to heat exhaustion. He returned 5 minutes later to finish the show. KOL should take a lesson from a band that shows such devotion and integrity to their fans. I sat with my 3 friends dumbfounded as KOL walked off the stage. Spoiled, self absorbed punks. When was the last time you heard of someone’s life being threatened by pigeon poop? Truely laughable. Grow up little boys. You suck.

  • July 24, 2010 at 12:09 pm Rockopotamus

    I’m in a band, and I would get up on stage every night and let a bird shit on me if it meant getting to realize my dreams and have my music heard by millions of people and actually get to do what I love for a living.

    well.. jared only plays the bass.. who gives if he got shat in thine mouth?!?! he should have gargled some listerine and kept it movin. now if caleb got shat in the mouth.. id understand. but this is wrong. could have at least continued after the incident..

  • July 24, 2010 at 12:43 pm Kb

    Yo, I’m still a fan of KOL but if it was Pigeon poop, that was a lame excuse to end the show after 3 songs… Pigeon poop in the mouth? still sort of lame… I think it was something else & pigeon poop is the “easy” out…

  • July 24, 2010 at 12:51 pm Jacob Zurawski

    I can see the ridiculous rider in their contract saying “venue must eliminate all airborne species prone to defecation’, right after the one that says “pedicures are to be administered backstage immediately after concert.”

  • July 24, 2010 at 12:55 pm Jacob Zurawski

    Pathogenic or not, a little bit of mouthwash goes a long way. Very disappointing.

    one smart birdie…

  • July 24, 2010 at 1:45 pm Jeff

    You guys are being too harsh toward the band. As an outdoor venue, it was the owners’ responsibility to make sure the stage conditions are good for the artists playing. I wouldn’t consider being hit by bird shit conducive to playing music well. You also never know what else happened that night to cause them to walk off stage. What if the band had been pelted by shit constantly during the sound check, asked the venue to do something about it, got their request ignored, and then the bassist getting crap in his mouth during the show? That would have been the last straw for even the most patient of bands. They did say it was the venue’s fault, but everyone was so angry they just dismissed the band’s statement automatically.

    That said, though, it would have been easy for the KoL guy just to take a 15 break to wash his mouth out and then continue the show. It was unnecessary to cancel the show, as it only punished their fans. I’m sure the venue didn’t care, even after refunding the ticket costs, I’m sure they still made a killing on food and alcohol that night.

  • July 24, 2010 at 2:01 pm arkpt10

    We made a 500+ mile round trip, took off work, and paid hard earned money that isn’t exactly plentiful to an engaged college couple. This was our only vacation this summer and something so stupid ruined it. This would’ve never happened in Arkansas because someone would’ve taken out the pigeons w/a pellet gun or something. I know someone else who dropped $1100 on the night, total fiasco.

  • July 24, 2010 at 2:13 pm matt

    I agree with the crowd… “Bullsh**, bullsh**, bullsh**, bullsh**, bullsh**”

    I just lost all respect for the band. What a bunch of prissy fairies. Grow a pair and finish the set.

  • July 24, 2010 at 2:53 pm lp

    You idiots think that the band is at fault for this? It’s the venue’s fault, period. No job in America calls for one to be constantly shit on by birds, so why should a musician put up with it?

    Seriously, they’re not being prima donnas because they don’t want to have diseased bird shit dropped on them for an hour and a half. They’re being reasonable.

    Too bad you assholes don’t know what that means.

  • July 24, 2010 at 3:48 pm Greg

    Here a solution to your problem:

    Now go out and look like the douches you are KOL

  • July 24, 2010 at 3:59 pm Mike

    A simple solution would have been to use some Pyrotecnics to scare them long before the show was to begin, this would have been the responceablity of the venue… the band plays music the Venue maintains the property…

  • July 24, 2010 at 5:10 pm Amanda

    I drove with my friends 6 1/2 hours to see this concert. Paid over $60.00 a ticket. Had they moved their stuff a little to the left they would have been out of the bombing zone. I think it was a real let down and the venue owes me a refund. I paid $10 a beer. I deserved a show.

  • July 24, 2010 at 5:38 pm Elli Kekland

    Pussys of Leon in my BOOK!!!

  • July 24, 2010 at 5:46 pm Wayne

    And I bragged to the USMC recruiters who were working at the show about how they should stay to see these guys because they’re bad-ass rockers. If the bird poo was their “official reason” to quit the show, then they should buy some maxi pads for their next outdoor venue. It’s a cover for the real reason…it was “too hot” and they decided to pack it in early and bend over their fans like Ned Beatty in Deliverance. My sis-n-law is pregnant and dealt with the heat. KOL are a bunch of pansy-ass, buttercup flit boys who cut their clits shaving their beavers.

  • July 24, 2010 at 6:13 pm confused

    really, what are the chances of that happening? and cancelling due to safety? Like the birds are coming after them now? Just take a break, wash your mouth out, and I’ll give you a hundred gazillion dollars if it happens again. If you played it off right, you could make a joke about it, everyone gets a laugh, and you’re a trooper…but no…(sigh)

    Laaaaaaaaame. If rock and roll was still alive the dude would’ve bit off the pigeons head, which is a just punishment for pooping on someone’s tongue.

  • July 25, 2010 at 12:58 am Schatonna

    I’m a HUGE KOL fan && i believe that it was more than just bird crap for them to cancel the concert. They wouldnt just cancel it for something so little. Too much money they would have to give back….Granite i was a little mad concidering i spent over 200 bucks to get there but a true fan wouldnt just give up on their band for something so stupid. I wont believe anything till i hear it come from their mouths:) Otherwise you guys should double check you info before you are so harsh and cruel about it. Their humans too. &&humans make mistakes believe it or not. It was like 100 degrees out there he could of ran off the stage to get sick. Whatever us as the crowd was feeeling hot wise was 10 times worse on stage they have a gazillion lights on them and their performing for pete sakes give them a break!

  • July 25, 2010 at 12:59 am Blake

    It was confirmed by band members, as well as a press release from their publicist. It was indeed pigeon poop that chased them away.

  • July 25, 2010 at 2:46 am JC

    why not just bring a roadie with them on stage with an umbrella if it was such a problem? I assume this was totally a decision by the singer. sounds like something axl rose would pull

  • July 25, 2010 at 3:53 am David

    Schatonna, read the article before opening your mouth.

    It was bird poop. They confirmed it, their publicist confirmed it. I know that in your litttle imagination you want to justify their cowardice, but the real reason was bird shit (of a single bird, on a single band member)

  • July 25, 2010 at 9:44 am Dee

    They are the Queens Of Leon.

  • July 25, 2010 at 10:42 am catrina

    primadonnas…spit it out, scrub the chiclets, swish around some listerine and get back on the stage. i will bet that in the days when they were trying to make it big, they would have endured a lot worse. the difference between “rock stars” and “real musicians”…

  • July 25, 2010 at 11:15 am Linda

    I am sorry, but how many bands play at this venue, and ONE band walks off due to the bird droppings? ONE? If the bird droppings are “so bad” how come other bands haven’t walked off stage?
    How come no other bands canceled their shows?

    The bird must have had pretty good aim. The press release said the dropping got on his cheek and near his mouth, not in his mouth. Simple solution … take a break, get cleaned back up and go back on.

  • July 25, 2010 at 3:23 pm stefanie

    i had pit tickets and was 3 rows from the stage (under the exact same awning thing they were claiming these loose boweled pigeons were packed in) cough cough bullshit! this is the lamest excuse i have ever heard! if you are stupid enough to buy it, you should still be pissed that they didnt have the balls to say a word. ps-the stills bass player got dripped on which appeared to be water from my perspective. that was the one and only time that anything came down from the awning/cover. BULLSHIT!

  • July 25, 2010 at 4:11 pm laughing

    This is just too funny….why can’t birds just follow this pathetic band around and crap on them at all times??

    They deserve at least that for being such a horrible band….even the birds knew how lame they really were…HAHAHA!

  • July 25, 2010 at 6:03 pm Brian Winge

    You are all fucking idiots. Maybe they were too fucking high?! Thats rock and roll. Move on losers! KOL still rocks!!! Always will. Glad I’m from Chicago, great show last night guys!

  • July 25, 2010 at 8:34 pm Jeff

    Totally crappy thing to do. So KoL got shit on and their response was to shit on their 1000’s of fans. “Real classy”

    Three hours of setting in 90+ weather waiting for a 10 minute show. “Very Lame”

    I really feel for all those who traveled far or spend cash on over night lodging. It’s clear KoL didn’t give a crap. Here’s one person “make that the group of 6 of us who went” that won’t soon forget how KoL treats their fan base.

    The show should have went on. If there’s birds in the rafters step out from under the rafters.

  • July 26, 2010 at 2:33 am f you

    anyone one of you who stick up for this band and this situation is an idiot. fuck this band and what they did to their fans.

  • July 26, 2010 at 11:18 am ivanivich

    They didn’t have to cancel the entire show. Get a hose and shoo them away and game on…. it could have been something cool to remember but now the general consensus is that their prissy. What’s up the little rat on his lap. If Ozzy was in his prime he would have bit the head off that thing.

    Disappointing nonetheless. No one wants to be shit on and no one likes a group of prissies.

    I like ham.

  • July 26, 2010 at 2:53 pm Moses Brown

    Why the hell would they walk off stage and cancel the show. Just send a roadie up and get the friggin’ bird outta there. Get a B B gun. Something. 3 songs and cancel. I call bull shit. These pansie ass little girls couldn’t take the heat so they wasted EVERYONE’s time. Officially taking my KOL cd to a used store and will gladly take the $1.50 they offer for it.

  • July 26, 2010 at 5:35 pm Mikey

    I went to the concert, and if it were me, I would have left that stage too. I understand we are all disappointed, but “shit” happens.

    Put yourself in their position….Imagine being continuously hit in the face or mouth by bird shit. Would you enjoy it?!?! I have gone to many outdoor concerts, and the last thing that is on my mind, and I am sure the musicians minds, is that you are going to be hit by bird crap. Many outdoor venues have placed bird distractors and used other devices to ensure this does not occur. I am shocked they have not install such devices here.

    In addition, several other artists, including the Jonas Brothers and Limp Bizkit have postponed their shows at this Ampitheatre due to this incident. The Verizon amphitheatre has a responsibility to ensure the safety and welfare of the performers…they are to blame, not the band.

  • July 26, 2010 at 7:49 pm Kevin

    I worked at this venue for 5 years and I have never seen anything like that. I was in attendance friday night and was shocked. Several local radio stations have been stating that the band apparently got too messed up the night before and had the EMT’s hook them up to IV’s before the concert to try and play. That had hired some extra security to escort them straight to their already packed bus after playing their contractual obligation of 3 songs. I don’t doubt that he may have got hit by some bird poop, but I really don’t buy it being the reason they canceled. But hey, these were just statements coming from people that work at the venue.

    I decided to bring my 6 year old twins to a junk head show because I’m a responsible parent. When they cried I coddled them instead of letting them learn that in life it isn’t fun to get shit on by birds. I demand a refund on the drinks and clothes that I wasn’t forced to buy. Next week I’m bringing my kids to a meth convention in Detroit…Sure hope all goes well there.

  • July 27, 2010 at 5:26 pm Julie L.

    why not just take a break,wash the shit outta your mouth then go back out there and move the damn microphone back some to where you wouldn’t get shit on!? dumb ass’s!!!

  • July 29, 2010 at 6:33 am punkpad

    I was at this concert. Everyone thought it was a joke when they announced it was being canceled. Cyndi Lauper was singing at an outdoor venue a few years ago, and a bird actually pooped IN HER MOUTH! Look it up, there’s video of it. Did she stop the show? No way, she took a break and finished her set. That’s a true performer.

  • August 18, 2010 at 2:35 pm bethany

    wow. really guys people? if a bird poop on your face would you continue? NO!

    i was there at the concert and god i was really disappointed and pissed! but c’mon- bird feces dropping on you i mean, once, well, maybe, but more than once…

    it was mentioned that nathan is a real “germaphobe”. think about it, you see the previous band members coming offstage with excretement all over them, that’s just gross! and even more gross to someone who has a germ phobia. unfortunately because the way the KOL stage was set up with the pyotechnics and pedals, they couldn’t move Nathan but to Nathan’s credit he sucked it up and said let’s try it…

    i mean it’s bad enough having bird feces drop on you when you don’t have a phobia with germs but csn you imagine being a germaphobe and having pigeon feces on you, and it happening more than once, and near your mouth…and you don’t know if it’s going just start raining pigeon shit and you have this image of being completely covered after 45 come on people, that’s gross!

    and why aren’t we asking Verizon to share the blame…bird feces is a health hazard so much so that The New York Transit Authority was ordered to pay over $6 million to a man who suffered serious injuries after slipping on a bird droppings and falling on a flight of subway stairs and a teacher won $1.2 million in a settlement with a Florida school district after contracting Cryptococcosis from bird feces.

    no one should have to suffer pigeon feces dropping on you while you work.
