But while the headliners had the luxury of being able to call an end to their show at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre, there was no such get out for the Stills and, in particular, bassist Oliver Crowe.
Speaking to Toronto's Eye magazine Crowe described what happened to him during the Still's 45-minute set saying, "During our second song I felt something like an air conditioner drop, or like little droplets of water spray on my face. The carpet on-stage was black, and I noticed 10 to 13 brown spots on it and I started worrying -- but I figured, if a bird had s---, it won't happen again, so I'm fine."
Little did he know what was to come.
He continued, "About two to three songs later, I bent over to do, like, a shoegazer move, and I felt something very substantial on the back of my head and down my back and, for the rest of the show I was extremely paranoid and constantly looking up."
After their set, Crowe warned fellow four-stringer Followill but despite the crew's best efforts the problem remained, unlike the Kings of Leon who walked three songs into a 20-song set after the bassist had received repeated splatterings, including one to the face.
Crowe believes the venue was at fault and could easily have dealt with the problem but was happy to laugh off the incident saying, "We played 45 minutes and the Kings played three songs, so we've dubbed it the best Stills' encore ever. And, as we've been saying here, 'Thank God the s--- didn't hit the fans!'"
