Guns n Roses-less stage in Dublin - 9/1/2010 (mlennox)
Guns and Roses

"The crowd are not amused as the band do not appear on stage until approx 10:25pm. No interaction or apology by Axl to the crowd who are booing etc.. Bottles are thrown on stage during the start of Welcome To The Jungle. Axl tells the crowd to stop throwing bottles at him or they'll leave. The show goes on for another couple of songs before more bottles are thrown at Axl & he just up's & leaves. The Promoters / Venue staff make announecements to the crowd about trying to fix technical difficulties at first (yeah right!) & then tell people they're working to get the band back & ask the crowd to stop throwing things at Axl. The crowd were told another annoucment would be forthcoming but after 10-15 mins, the house lights just came on & crowds started to leave after O2 staff were telling the crowd it was over & to contact MCD for a refund... I was one fo the crowd who had waited for ages & after been told it was over & the band were not coming back on & to seek my refund from MCD, I heard the band came back on at approx 11:30pm but we weren't allowed back into the venue."

Two things:

(1) The show started at 10:25. Ok, but how lat was that? Was it supposed to start at 8:00 or at 9:30? Big difference.

(2) Whether I was late or not, if people were throwing bottles at me and I said "stop," but they kept throwing bottles at me, I would leave the friggin' stage too. F'k those people.

It's GnR, being late is part of the show. Don't throw shit.

I would give my left nut if someone TAZED him somehow !!!

Why is this surprising? Axl is an ass, but if you're going to one of his shows you should be prepared for his bullshit, he's Axl Rose.

Posted by Anonymous | September 2, 2010 10:58 AM

10:19 is right. its part of the show. axl has been making crowds wait for up to 3 hrs since the beginning.

Posted by Anonymous | September 2, 2010 11:00 AM

It's 2010, why are people paying money to see Axl Rose?

Posted by guuuurrrrllll | September 2, 2010 11:09 AM

why is it ok to be three hours late if you always do it? Not seeing how just because thats what he always does its ok. John Wayne Gacy was always killing people before he got caught, why should anyone be upset now?

Posted by Anonymous | September 2, 2010 11:11 AM

if its standing room, thats a long time...

Posted by Anonymous | September 2, 2010 11:24 AM

why on earth is anyone paying up to 72 euros to see this piece of shit band still?

If anyone was that MSG show a few years back, you'll remember Axl was about 90 minutes as well.... (supposed to be 10PM, didn't start till 11:30. Certainly nothing new... In the band's defense, they did proceed to put on a 2 1/2 hour show regardless of the late start time.

Throwing shit is inexcusable under any circumstances(you run an equal risk of hurting someone in the audience, but I definitely think it's time for the fans to stop paying money for this garbage(this coming from a fan who enjoyed the last tour and record). If we continue to shell out money to be held hostage, this will continue indefinitely....

Tommy Stinson must get a kick out of it...all those years with Westerberg must look like a cake walk compared to this guy.

pay 70 euros to see garbage greatest hits from a jukebox band. I'll play my cassette.

Posted by Anonymous | September 2, 2010 4:53 PM

bands need to play behind a wall of chicken wire like in the blues bros movie. that way people can throw stuff at them and the show continues.

Posted by Anonymous | September 2, 2010 5:31 PM

4:10 Yeah, what a crime for paraphrasing some G'n'R lyrics in a funny way. Keep the "old people shouldn't like music" vibe alive, champ!
