Macaulay Culkin’s band booed off stage
It was a “Blues Brothers” moment for actor Macaulay Culkin and his band Pizza Underground on Sunday at the Dot to Dot Festival in Nottingham, England, when fans turned on the comedy cover group by booing them and even throwing beer onstage.
Unfortunately, Mac couldn’t turn it around with a pizza-themed version of “Rawhide” to get the crowd going; the “Home Alone” star and the rest of Pizza Underground allegedly walked off stage smelling like booze after only three songs — but before they performed a cover of Lou Reed’s “Perfect Day,” calling it “Pizza Day.”
Culkin’s band performs Velvet Underground and Lou Reed songs but changes the lyrics around to be about pizza. Someone call the music police. I hope this isn’t Culkin’s way to immortalize VU frontman Lou Reed who died last fall. If they have a song called, “I’m Waiting for the Delivery Man,” they deserve to be booed off every stage.
