A bat landed on the left leg of The Pretty Reckless singer Taylor Momsen while the band played Witches Burn during a set at Estadio La Cartuja in Seville, Spain, on May 29th.

Noticing audience members were pointing at Momsen’s leg she looked down and exclaimed, “There’s a fucking flying bat on my leg right now. Can someone help me, please? I must really be a witch.”

A stagehand quickly came to remove the bat but not before it bit the singer. “It’s all right. And the bat’s fine. He’s gonna be my new friend,” added Momsen, who is looking at rabies shots for the next two weeks. 

The Pretty Reckless were opening for AC/DC.

“I’m telling you, I’m a fucking witch,” concluded Momsen. “I attract the bats. Someone, bring out a black cat. It’s gonna be great.”
