MORE Guns N' Roses Drama! Band Walks Off Stage In Dublin!

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooMusic MinuteSuper Seniors

This certainly has not been Guns N' Roses' week!

The aging rock band caused yet ANOTHER drama-filled evening last night during their gig in Dublin when they WALKED OFF THE STAGE after 20 minutes into their set!

The drama started when the band once again took the stage an hour late, and many agitated fans began throwing bottles at the stage! Axl Rose threatened to walk off if it happened again, and well, it did, so the show ended!

After another hour, the set started up again, but most of the audience had left by that point!

Check out the video of the mess (above)!

O2 Promoters have issued the following statement:

"Despite every effort being made by promoters to ensure Guns N' Roses would go on stage on time, they went on at 22.26hrs having been due to be on stage at 21.45hrs, support artist finished at 21:00hrs.

During the second song Axl requested members of crowd who were throwing plastic glass's containing unknown substances to immediately stop or he would have no option but to leave the stage. He confirmed band's wish to perform stating "we want to stay..one more bottle and we go home." Despite his continued appeals, having tried to continue performing for 22 minutes, people continued throwing unknown substances leaving artist with no choice but to leave the stage.

From the stage MCD Promoter Denis Desmond again appealed to audience to refrain from throwing items and stated that the band would be back on stage shortly.

The artist was prevented from leaving the venue by the Promoter and following backstage discussions Guns N' Roses went back on stage at 23.20 hrs and performed their full set until 00.53 hrs.

While the artist has a long history for being late on stage (Slane 1992 - crowd waiting 2 hours and last weekend's UK Reading festival), NO artist should be subjected to missiles and unknown substances being thrown at them. However, despite this the band went back on stage after people stopped throwing items performing their full set of songs in full.

MCD and The 02 wish to apologise for any inconvenience caused due to late running of the show."

YEESH!

You'd think that after all the drama that went down last weekend, these fools would have some sense and attempt to start performing a little closer to on-time!

They're just starting to sound like whiney divas!

What do U think?? Was Guns N' Roses at fault this time??

    Yes they had a right to get mad about the bottles however they need to stop this shit with the starting really late. That's just a slap in the face to the fans.



  2. 2

    In Belfast the support act finished at about 9pm, but then the roadies came on to set up the stage, and GnR came on at about 9.45pm, and they were amazing! Everyone here was really patient, and no-one threw anything…

    They walked off , most people left the arena by the time they decided to come back on.

    Ugh, he's been doing this for over 20 years now. Grow the fuck up Axel. Get there on time. It's not hard, you're already in the fucking arena.

    Axl's a selfish, narcissistic idiot.

    *

    And idiot who thinks he's special and still relevant and can get away with his diva act. But he's now a has-been, has proven time and time again he doesn't give a shit about his fans, the people working at these venues who have to stay late and even his own band members who are at his mercy and selfish whims.

    *

    Since he's always been late since he first came on the scene it should be written into the contracts he either starts on time or automatically gets penalized with a hefty monetary hit. Not the band members who're just waiting on him. Just Axl as he's the boss and he calls the shots.

    *

    Fuck Axl Rose. His day was a very long time ago. And what he passes off as G'n'R is merely a name only. Nice guys and good musicians though the band members may be, they aren't G'n'R.

    Perez, you're an idiot! If you actually knew anything about Axl Rose or GN'R you would know that he has ALWAYS come on late. They did that crap 20 years ago. I know because I saw them on the Use Your Illusion tour. St. Louis riot, anyone??? Instead of giving your bloated opinion on things you don't know about, you might want to try some research so you won't keep looking like a dumb ass. Just sayin'….

    Washed up old fuck!!! If he wants to keep the little fans he has left he better start showing up on time!



  8. 8

    It was ridiculous, you could easily define what went down last night as rioting..he needs to grow the fuck up and get over himself. I was at Blink-182 in the O2 the night before, another very rowdy crowd, and the crowd had a ball, and the guys onstage seemed to love it too. THAT was a wonderful show, they seemed so proud to be up there, but Axl..it just seemed a chore for him. He needs to quit this self-importance act he has going on and get over himself.

    since when did rock stars go on stage on time? i've been to hundreds of concerts - there's often waiting. don't these people get out much?

    45 minutes is NOT a lot. i took my dad to see willie nelson, we waited 3 hours.



  10. 10

    If someone were throwing bottles at me, Id march right the fuck off that stage too. Why dont you write about fans throwing bottles? get mad at the asshole who threw the bottle???
    as usual perez and his sister are stupid and backward in their thinking. why blame the victim, you trash?



  11. 11

    If it was you then you would be bitch whining about the whole thing in a video after coming home.



  12. 12

    you know what, i love guns n' roses, but honestly, they call themselves 'rockstars' but cant even handle PLASTIC bottles being thrown at them, fair enough if it was glass, but come on… plastic isnt gonna hurt you.



  13. 13

    I saw them in Sturgis August 13th. They were two hours late and most of the crowd had left by then. It was a very long night but I hung in there. They were awesome, but the bottles were a flyin!



  14. 14

    Why are there bottles at a concert/arena? And why can't they just throw feces at Axl like they did with Tila Tequila? Now that would be some funny, um, shit!



  15. 15

    Plastic bottles full of liquid do fucking hurt people. I would of walked off too… as a fan of GnR you should just arrive an hour late, you know that you will be early to the show. Stop whining and complaining people, we now live in a fucking McDonald society. Believe it or not great things take time, shitty things take no time.

    axl has borderline personality disorder, bipolar, and maybe even a narcissistic personality. he is truely, a tortured genius. a giant of talent. so he's a little dodgy in the concert department with commitment to timing. we all know it. deal with it at your own peril and shut up.



  17. 17

    Axl is an ASSHOLE no doubt, the wrong guy has his talent! I say good on ya the Dubs, but I hope other people start doing this at their concerts!! I'm so glad I didn't go. But I think I'd be more patient if the members from Appetite for Destruction were there. They are just pathetic now.

    People please read the statement - plastic glasses - or to put it in a language you might understand, FLIMSY PLASTIC CUPS were thrown, not bottles. By the time the glasses reached the stage they were probably half empty. I agree that throwing anything is wrong, but get your facts straight and read the whole story before you start accusing people.



  20. 20

    What do you expect when you turn up LATE to perform in front of a huge crowd of drunk irishmen!! If Axl had even one brain cell, he would have known this is one crowd not to piss off. Axl Rose = HAS BEEN LOSER



  21. 21

    I, myself, am always punctual. It's a simple courtesy that I extend and would appreciate in return. Axel must think that making an audience wait builds anticipation. He's wrong. Being late, intentional or otherwise is a douche move. We live in an age of instant communication. People want what they want right damn now!

    Re: kwirkee
    Nice to see the old stereotypes coming out (not). I'm sure not everyone in the crows was drunk and I am definately sure there were women there too.



  23. 23

    I am *shocked* anyone is buying tickets to see Axl and his band of nobodies. He needs to take lessons from Lady Gaga about how to treat fans.



  24. 24

    To bad that a few idiot`s ruined the show.The start of that song sounded better
    than ever.I`m sure the fans that stayed enjoyed there show.I`n the end
    they started exactly when they wanted to.I sure wish they come and tour
    North America.If not the U.S come to Canada again.We respect this band
    totaly up here .If some jackass threw something at the stage here,it would
    be the last thing they did.We work to hard to buy a ticket to have some lowlife
    steal it from us.Stay away if you can`t handle a late start!!!!!!!!We won`t miss you one bit.

    That's far too long between bands. I don't wonder that the bottles were flying up. If you don't respect your audience, you're a fool to expect them to respect you.
    Of course they shouldn't throw them, and of course you shouldn't have kept them waiting until they wanted to.
