Two years later, he reprised his role in the film 'Home Alone 2: Lost in New York'. Despite the success of the original film and the moderate success of the sequel, due to declining success of his additional film and television appearances, he took some time out of the film industry.

When the band was booed off-stage on one occasion, the band cancelled their later tours throughout 2014.

Culkin, who was by this point half-way through a European tour, beat a hasty retreat from the stage after being drenched with beer.
