Kings of Leon abandon U.S. concert due to pigeon poop(Reuters) - American rock band Kings of Leon said they were forced to abandon a concert in St. Louis at the weekend after three songs because pigeons kept pooping on them from the rafters.

The band left the stage at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater on Friday after bass player Jared Followill was hit in the face by one dropping.

"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," the Nashville band's publicist, Any Mendelsohn, said in a statement.

"It's not only disgusting - it's a toxic hazard. They really tried to hang in there."

Drummer Nathan Followill apologized on Twitter to fans of the Grammy-winning band which is made up of three Followill brothers and their cousin Matthew who plays lead guitar.

"So sorry St Louis. We had to bail, pigeons s***ing in Jared's mouth and it was too unsanitary to continue," he wrote.

"Don't take it out on Jared ... Sorry for all who (traveled) many miles."

One of the most encouraging offerings last week was the UK release of the new single "All the Eastern Girls" by London-based Chapel Club. The band recently headlined on the Emerge NME Radar Tour, and BBC Radio's Zane Lowe previously recognized the track as his "Hottest Record in the World," but don't expect this record to chart in The Official UK Singles Chart, which, in common with the US Billboard Hot 100, is dominated by RnB and TV talent show artists. As a foretaste of Chapel Club's debut album expected early next year, "All the Eastern Girls" is full of promise for the future.

An emerging band based in fashionable East London, Chapel Club is a guitar band that has developed its own, distinctive, trademark sound. Intense, arty, experimental and yet listenable, the melodies are expressive, generally dramatic, at times tuneful, and often dissonant, with intricate guitar riffs and hooks backed by deliberate playing and rhythmic drumming which every now and then explode into driving guitar licks and dynamic drum rolls. The lyrics, written about lust, love, and loss, are intelligent, darkly poetic, frequently pensive, sometimes reflective, and occasionally contemplative, written and sung with meticulous timing by vocalist Lewis Bowman in a soft, crooning voice which has a quality curiously reminiscent of Ian McCulloch at his finest.

Referred to as "gloomsters" by some, Chapel Club's music has been described as "Moody, majestic and magnificent" by others. Global Editor of Billboard Magazine, Mark Sutherland, described the band's sound as, "Amazing… shoegaze but with songs and balls."
