KINGS OF LEON PLAY POOP-FREE SHOW IN ST. LOUIS
Kings Of Leon returned to the Verizon Amphitheater in St. Louis on Thursday night (July 31st), the scene of an infamous 2010 incident in which the band left the stage and halted their concert because they were being pelted with pigeon poop. According to NME.com, the show on Thursday came off without a hitch, with drummer Nathan Followill tweeting afterwards, "Thank you St Louis for an amazing night & thank you pigeons for a s*** free show. Catch y'all on the flip side."
Bassist Jared Followill revealed before the gig that he was being teased by friends before the show, with one texting a picture of a pigeon accompanied by the words, "They are coming for you."
The St. Louis exorcism/show was the opening gig on the third leg of the Kings' 2014 trek in support of their sixth album, Mechanical Bull.
The band next plays on Tuesday (August 5th) in Toronto, with the gigs extending to October 3rd in Los Angeles. Joining them on select dates will be Young The Giant and Kongos.
Mechanical Bull came out last September and features the singles "Supersoaker," "Wait For Me" and "Temple."
