Culkin booed at gig

It’s got to be tough being Macaulay Culkin. The former child star, 33, was in Nottingham, England this weekend for a performance at the UK’s Dot to Dot Festival on Sunday, May 25, when something happened they didn’t expect. Culkin was joined by his pizza-themed Velvet Underground tribute band, Pizza Underground, which records pizza-inspired takes on classics such as “I’m Waiting for Delivery Man” to the 1960’s track “I’m Waiting for the Man”. The comedy of the band was met with a less-than-warm reception at the UK gig, when they performed a spin on Lou Reed’s “Perfect Day”, instead singing about “Pizza Day.”

The crowd reportedly booed the band and threw pints of beer at the stage. According to the Nottingham Post, Culkin and his bandmates tried to continue their show, but when the heckling continued, they stormed off stage. The Pizza Underground cut their set short, leaving after just 15 minutes onstage. “That’s the end of the show,” Culkin told the crowd, “Goodnight.”

After the show, Pizza Underground tweeted from its official page:

Hopefully Nottingham gets the concert it deserves sometime soon.
