ALL TICKETS TO BE REFUNDED
CNN is reporting that Kings of Leon were forced to end
their performance three songs into their set at the Verizon Wireless Ampitheatre in St. Louis on Friday night after the
band was bombarded by a group of pigeons who had taken up residence in the rafters of the venue.

In a statement, the band said "Even though opening bands The Postelles and The Stills came offstage complaining of
getting riddled with large amounts of pigeon excrement, the Kings of Leon decided to carry on regardless. The band
felt it would be unfair to the fans to cancel the show at that late moment. "I'm surprised they stayed on for as many
songs as they did," said Andy Mendelsohn of Vector Management. "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's not only disgusting -- it's a toxic health hazard. They really tried to hang in there. We want to
apologize to our fans in St. Louis and will come back as soon as we can."
