America’s most-successful critical flops, The Chainsmokers hit Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania last night for a sold-out arena show. In what may be their most Spinal Tap moment yet, the band’s set ended with a banner that misspelled the name of the city hosting them. From a live review posted by Trib Live:

The night and their set ended with an encore of “Last Day Alive,” the last track of their first full-length album “Memories…Do Not Open,” released on April 7. The full band version of the song was met with much applause, before being dampened with a misspelled “Thank You Pittsburg” sign that came down at show’s end. It was obviously unfortunate, but even more so because Taggart made it a point to talk about how great the city had been to The Chainsmokers and not every city was as enthusiastic as Pittsburgh.

Everyone, including the band, tweeted through it.
