Macaulay Culkin cancels UK tour

Macaulay Culkin and his band The Pizza Underground have cancelled the remainder of their UK tour.

The announcement comes following shows in Manchester and Nottingham where they were booed off stage and pelted with pints of beer.

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 33-year-old former child star - who made his name in the Home Alone films in the 90s - was touring Britain with his novelty band, who play Velvet Underground songs with pizza-themed lyrics.

Macaulay also performs kazoo solos and the band often give out free pizza to the audience.

It was recently reported the band stormed off stage after just 15 minutes during a performance at Rock City in Nottingham, when the crowd began throwing glasses at the stage.

The Uncle Buck star apparently asked the crowd: "Why are you throwing those? I'd rather drink them."

They later tweeted: "Thank you so much Nottingham. Sorry that a couple [of] people ruined it for everyone."

The Nottingham gig was part of the Dot to Dot festival - where the audience do not know what acts they will be watching. But The Pizza Underground reportedly received a similar reception at Manchester's Zoo.
