    Rock concert disrupted by pigeons

    http://www.cnn.com/2010/SHOWBIZ/Musi...ex.html?hpt=T2

    Kings of Leon stopped a show after three songs because they were getting repeatedly shat upon (that's a technical turn) by pigeons in the rafters of the venue.

    I'm sure that was just a experience, but it's also

    I hate pigeons. Rats with wings. It is pretty funny though
    One day your life will flash before your eyes. Make sure it's worth watching.

    So, pigeons can't stand Kings of Leon and their constipation-voice lead singer either!

    Live Nation had to refund everything, including their fees. I bet they were pissed.

    I think it was probably unpleasant, but there are conflicting reports on how bad (or not) it was, and there's the idea that "the show must go on". To think that Cyndi Lauper is more hardcore than KOL is pretty funny.

    Poor KOL.

    I love KOL but that is very funny.

    One of the music critics at a local newspaper has a total hate-on for Kings of Leon. I think one of them stole his girlfriend or something. This news will make him happy
    We live in an ageist society where everything is based on youth, but I hated being 18. I don't like teenagers any more now than I did then. I'm 49 now and there is no way that I'd go back to my teens and 20s - even if I knew what I know now, I don't want to go through all that again. I found it a very difficult time. - Buzz Osborne of the Melvins

    Pigeons are a delicacy in Egypt. Why don't we treat them the same in the U.S. ? They're disgusting.

    The only thing that could make for a better story is if it had been Flock of Seagulls performing instead of Kings of Leon.
    To think that fun is simple fun, while earnest things are earnest, proves all too plain that neither one thou truthfully discernest.

    Actually, the report on Huffington Post yesterday said that on of the pigeons sh@t n the bassist' mouth, which is what actually stopped the performance. ick!!!

    If that happened to me I would be lying on the floor screaming and kicking in hysteria...but I think I would get over it in about 10 minutes...They should have taken a break and then maybe come back out.

    Wasn't there a pigeon that famously interrupted one of the Grand Prix events a few years back? I remember reading a hysterical account of that on FSU.

    Yep. Trophee Lalique. Le Pigeon! Someone has pics
    I think there was even an FSU graemlin at one time.

    I always thought the lead singer of KOL sounds like a constipated Elmer Fudd.

    I saw an outdoor production of Guys and Dolls where pigeons divebombed the performers during Sky and Sarah's big romantic scene. But I think this story trumps that one! The actors were able to keep going (though hard put to it to keep from laughing), but it might have been a totally different story if the pigeons had started pooping.
