Can't request XML from URL: "Invalid HTTP destination port"

I was trying to access data from a SHOUTCast stream. They have a public stats URL that returns XML. I figured I could use YQL to get the data from that page.

I tried this query:

SELECT * FROM xml WHERE url="<http://shoutcast.example.com>:8000/stats?sid=2"

This gave me an error in the YQL console, however:

Invalid URL <http://shoutcast.example.com>:8000/stats?sid=2: Invalid HTTP destination port

I tested it with a server running on port 80, and it worked. Why won't YQL load data from port 8000?
