It’s been a rough couple of shows for Guns N’ Roses. The band has been perpetually late for their last few shows, and as a result, has been forced to stop performing in the middle of their sets. The two performances in question were held in Reading and Leeds. The band actually started one of their sets an hour late, with no explanation or apology to the fans. When the sound was cut off in the middle of the band’s performance, frontman Axl Rose, tried to blame the promoters for the brevity of their show. The organizer, Melvin Benn, said that it was the band’s prerogative to go on stage late, but they did not have the authority to determine how late the performance would last because of predetermined curfew regulation.
The bands most disgraceful show, however, came in Dublin. The Irish fans were less than happy when the band came on stage an hour late (again), and without an explanation (again). The fans started boo-ing Guns N’ Roses from the moment they got on stage, and then took it to the next level by throwing bottles at the band. I would continue explaining what happened, but the video just does so much more.
Guns N’ Roses look like they aren’t trying particuarly hard to keep their fans happy. In my opinion, another meltdown is imminent, but who knows, maybe Axl Rose will clean up his act (imagine).
