When Guns N' Roses went on stage at Rock In Rio, it was 2:40am. The previous band left the stage at 1:15am.
Now, most concert-goers know the longest wait between sets is usually an hour max, give or take depending on the situation.
But since festival attendees complained about the long wait, Rock In Rio's event organizer Roberto Medina slammed the band, accusing them of a "lack of commitment."
This pissed the rockers off. Pissed them into a condition we call 'reckless rhyming.' Here's what they had to say on their Facebook:
Love it Hate it Accept it Debate it - You want 8 o'clock shows go find F-R-I-E-N-D-S or hit a cinema somewhere. Or you wanna be informed go catch the 10 o'clock news.. this is Rock N' Roll! Treat yourself don't cheat yourself thinking you're gonna go to school or work or whatever you 'normally' do the next day. Oh and remember before you get high and never want to come down. 'you can have anything you want but you better not take it from me!' This is Guns N'Roses and when the time is right the stage will ignite
LOL! Their publicist, on the other hand, had a little more to say:
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. GN'R walked onstage at 2:40 a.m. and played for two-and-a-half hours in the pouring rain. GN'R would never seek to intentionally disrespect anyone, especially their fans.
Well at least they have a good publicist! But did their two-and-a-half hours really ignite the stage? We don't know…watch the video above and tell us what U think!
