Tomorrow night, Kings of Leon returns to the scene of the bird-poop crime, the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater. The concert is a make-up date for the band's abbreviated July 23 show, during which pooping pigeons sent them offstage after three tunes. To ensure that tomorrow's concert goes off without a hitch, we have the following suggestions to keep the pesky pigeons away.

Spray entire venue with WD-40 Pigeons hate the smell.

Sombreros Keep the droppings out of bassist Jared Followill's mouth -- and commemorate last week's Mexican Independence Day!

Fill the Verizon Wireless Ampitheater rafters with feral cats Let the food chain work for you!

Hire a pied piper to seduce the pigeons into a mass suicide with song Is Jethro Tull flautist Ian Anderson available?

Free all-you-can-eat worm buffet at Harrah's The pigeons will come for the food and stay for the penny slots.

Eat the birds first. Pigeon meat (a.k.a. squab) is a delicacy akin to cornish game hens.
