Pigeon bombardment cancels Kings of Leon concert

An infestation of pigeons that bombarded the Kings of Leon with droppings at a St Louis concert forced an early end to the band's show.

Bassist Jared Followill was hit several times, including near his mouth, and the onslaught was deemed a health hazard.

The crowd grew restless after the band walked off and an announcement told them that the show was over.
