Tonight’s gig had it all. After a reported 90 minute delay, Guns ‘n’ Roses finally come on stage. An object is thrown and Axl storms off – end of gig. Or was it? He’s back for a few more songs. Then off again, as the house lights go up. 14,000 Irish GnR fans are left bewildered, angry and €70 out of pocket. It would be – and is – hilarious, were it not for the fact that this kind of beaviour is completely unacceptable.
But from who – the bottle thrower or Axl?
One upshot of the whole thing was the riveting live broadcasting of FM104. I dont know if the show will be kept online or anything, but it’s one for the archives.
Twitter updates were gold. But the last word went to one wag, who claims to have spotted our man
“…in the venue carpark, holding his mickey and crying into a bowl of Hazelbrook Farm ice cream”
Observe the full horror here:
Were you there? What did you think?
