Macaulay Culkin’s band, The Pizza Underground, has cancelled the rest of their UK shows after they were booed offstage in two cities, Nottingham and Manchester.
The band, which performs pizza-themed covers of Velvet Underground tunes, was also pelted with beer by disgruntled fans, and now the band has axed the rest of its live shows.
Announcing the cancellation, The Pizza Underground tweeted: “Sad that we had to cancel UK shows. Believe it or not we had fun! But all good things must end, and sometimes suddenly and w/o explanation.”
The Pizza Underground also pulled out of a performance at Spain’s Primavera Sound festival on Saturday, but insisted the cancellations “had nothing to do with the beer tossers” and claimed they had to “deal with a cheesemergency (sic)”.
Macaulay Culkin, who plays kazoo in The Pizza Underground, and his bandmates were forced offstage just 15 minutes into their set at the Rock City in Nottingham after fans began hurling abuse and beer at them.
