  GUNS N' ROSES FRONTMAN STOPS MONTERREY PERFORMANCE AFTER FANS 'THROW SHIT' ON STAGE
26th October 2011

guns n roses



Guns n' Roses frontman Axl Rose stopped the band's live performance on Sunday night (October 23) at Monterrey Arena in Mexico after objects were thrown on stage.

One minute into opening number, 'Chinese Democracy', Rose stopped his band and warned the crowd that he would pack up and leave if they continued "throw[ing] shit."

Rose asked the audience; "Is that what you wanna do? Cause we will go home. Is that what you wanna do — throw shit? We would like to have fun. You wanna have a good time?" He then told his bandmates, "Alright, let's just skip that song," before launching into 'Welcome To The Jungle'.

According to SDPNoticias.com, the city of Monterrey, Mexico imposed a fine of $870 (approximately 200 times the minimum wage) on the organisers of the concert after the show was delayed by more than three hours. The late start was blamed by the organizers on 'technical issues' and not directly on Rose, who is notorious for his late arrivals onstage.

Earlier this month Guns n' Roses released a statement regarding reports that they were two hours late for their performance at Rock In Rio on 2nd October. The statement read;

"Guns n' Roses would like to set the record straight on Rock In Rio. The festival's inadequate production and the downpour of rain delayed the event. Anyone who was there knows that System Of A Down did not leave the stage until close to 1.15 in the morning. System's extensive stage production did not finish coming offstage until 1.45am.

"GN'R's production was up and ready to go at 2.15am. Axl [Rose] got to the venue before 1.00am and he came ready to go onstage. The inadequate cover of the Rock In Rio stage caused a further delay when the soundboard went down due to water damage and was replaced as quick as possible. GN'R walked onstage at 2.40am and played for two-and-a-half hours in the pouring rain. GN'R would never seek to intentionally disrespect anyone, especially their fans."

That statement was issued a day after a Rock In Rio organiser said that Rose's behavior exhibited "lack of commitment" and "respect for the public."






WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.
