Taylor Momsen With A Bat

The Pretty Reckless’ Taylor Momsen Bitten By Bat While Opening For AC/DC In Seville


The Pretty Reckless vocalist Taylor Momsen had an unexpected encounter with a bat mid-show in Seville, Spain this past Wednesday, May 29th. The group were opening for hard rock legends AC/DC when the creature opted to fly over and take up residence on Momsen‘s leg, without her knowledge. Upon discovering the stowaway, subsequent attempts to remove the creature from her leg led to it biting her, leading to a round of rabies shots being required.

Momsen shared the following post with footage of the incident, the bite itself, and her time in the hospital afterwards. The bite took place midway through the set, with the group finishing out with four more tracks afterwards.

“So…ROCK AND ROLL MOMENT…in Sevilla Wednesday during “Witches Burn” of all songs… a BAT 🦇 🦇 flew onto me and clung to my leg…in the moment I was performing and had no idea until the incredible crowd kept screaming and pointing…he was cute, but yes he bit me…so rabies shots for the next two weeks 😖😖😖 thanks to all the staff at the hospital who dubbed me #batgirl after seeing it on the local news that morning…more footage to come…that’s one for the books!!!! @acdc #pwrup #BATGIRL”
