Axl Rose Talks Dissappointing Weekend In Britain

| Filed under: Music Minute

Apparently, neither the city of Leeds or Reading in Britain are the “paradise city” Axl was referring to in the song.

Over the weekend, Guns N’ Roses played concerts in Reading and Leeds Britain and were cut off before their set was over. Festival organizers say it was because the band was continuing to play past curfew.

In a post on Twitlonger.com, Axl wrote:

"Regardless, the nonsense just seems so unnecessary but without real management or industry presence is unfortunately beyond our control. We hope the fans feel they got at least what they could from us under the circumstances as for us all things considered that's the main thing. The rest is filler.”

Festival organizers stand by their position, saying that Guns N’ Roses went on stage an hour late and were still given an extra 30 minutes to play.

Guitarist Richard Fortus sent out some tweets explaining the position of the band:

"I don't think there is another band out right now that has the balls to do what we did last night. Axl insists on doing things his way and not playing by the f**king rules. You can love him or hate him for it, but the fact of the matter is… he's the real f**king deal… Deal with it or not, but it won't ever change."

We think Guns N’ Roses might be a little too full of themselves at this point in their career. Maybe next time they won’t go on an hour late and piss of both fans and festival organizers.

    well next time you do another concert, make sure to be on time. some countries like the uk, can't tolerate that megalomanic attitude. serves you right!

    If the prima donna hadn't been an hour late on stage he wouldn't have gone past the curfew. It was totally his own fault, the mans deluded.



  3. 3

    And their performance was laughable. Little more than karaoke.

    Axl is a fucking 'Diva"…because he wants to do it "HIS" way and go on 1 hr late…he denied his fans a full concert…get over yourself…the fans are the ones who made you!!!!! jerk!



  5. 5

    Axl rose went on stage late…the earth revolved around the sun…what else is new?

    stop trying to stir up shit, no one slammed leeds or reading, they just think the festivals were poorly organised!



  7. 7

    Ya paid big bucks to to a job you show up on time and do it. Period. By being an hour late you are just pissing on the fans.



  8. 8

    I've got to agree that it takes "balls" to treat you're audience like sh*t. I'm just not sure if that's a good thing.

    whats Guns N’ Roses ?



  11. 11

    i was there and i can tell you that the festival was not poorly organised. Every other band that played on the three days managed to get onstage on time. Guns n Roses were warned that if they were late they would either not play or be cut off so its not like they didnt know it would happen. Every year the headliners manage to do their entire set so they would've had plenty of time to finish if they had been on time

    He did the same thing on Sweden Rock Festival, one hour late and played after the curfew. There was a storm blowing and the rain was poring down on a angry crowd. The diva lost some fans…

    The only thing he knows how to rock is a chair. Axl Rose is the lamest of lame 'musicians' and his one man show is SHITHOUSE.

    i can't stand it when people (including him) say he is what he is, it just shows he's the 'real deal'… yeah he sure is real, a real cock sucker. how anyone could disrespect themselves so much is beyond me, and to think, I've wasted my hard earned money buying a ticket to go see them in the past… more fool me

    terrible performance after an hour of waiting. we were standing next to a guy who was a massive fan, who ended up passing out of exhaustion from standing for so long to get a good spot, then for axl to get his fucking act together. when we saw him the next day, all he said was he was glad he had missed it from the things he had heard. karaoke band who are way past their sell by date to be pulling this shit on everyone.
