We’ve all seen footage of rock bands shouting out the name of the wrong city during a show, and maybe we’ve even been at a few of those concerts. But, how about pulling out the wrong flag during a gig?

Following KISS’ appearance on their “End of the Road” tour in Vienna, Austria, earlier this week, a thank you message was displayed in the arena that showed the Australian flag instead of the Austrian flag. Mega oops. Um, Australia and Austria are different counties, guys.

It didn’t take long for the mistake to go viral, with concertgoers sharing images of the screen.

Earlier that day, both Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley posted that they were in Vienna, so they do seem to know their geography. As of this post, neither band member has addressed the mishap. It’s an honest mistake, guys!
