Poor Macaulay Culkin. 

The Home Alone star-turned-offbeat-hipster-musician with his band Pizza Underground is not having a good run during his UK tour. 

Just days after storming off stage in Manchester after a heckler interrupted his kazoo solo, the band suffered another bad night in Nottingham.  

Culkin pulled the plug after 15 minutes after the band were reportedly jeered at and pelted with pints of beer.

The band later tweeted ''sorry that a couple of people ruined it for everyone'', but, let's face it, it's a tough gig to push.

The Pizza Underground began as a ''joke'' in 2012, with the five-piece band covering songs by ground-breaking '60s art-rockers the Velvet Underground.

And what might have just scraped in as a funny joke in the pub, should have stayed as such. The band reinterprets songs by swapping lyrics with the word ''pizza'' or pizza-related words such as slice. Thus, All Tomorrow's Parties becomes All Pizza Parties and It's a Perfect Day transforms into It's a Pizza Day.

It really is as bad as it sounds. 

The band played over the weekend at the British mini-festival Dot to Dot, across Manchester, Bristol and Nottingham, with another five sideshow gigs still to go.

In Manchester on Friday, while performing toe-curling tracks such as Take a Bite of the Wild Slice, apparently glasses were thrown at Culkin before he stormed off during a kazoo solo.

And in Nottingham on Sunday, the band abandoned the gig after just a couple of tracks.

The former child star, now 33, has sparked concern in recent years over his well-being, with several tabloid reporting allegations of drug abuse.
