Guns N' Roses Ban Slash T-Shirts At Shows
0
Guns N' Roses fans were told to remove their Slash t-shirts or go home before his London appearance last Friday. Perhaps it's no wonder that fans were throwing pint glasses at the band before the end of the show. One fan, James Revell, has explained that he went to the GN'R show with his younger brother, but staff at the door said they would refuse him entry if he didn't remove his Slash t-shirt. "I felt as though my freedom to wear what I want had been taken away from me," James told NME. "I did not react angrily as I didn't want to spoil the show for my brother. "I believed they asked me to do it because Axl Rose has some problem with Slash, and if he saw me wearing the shirt he might have stormed off stage." After all that, James and his brother had to leave after only three songs because the band started 50 minutes late - which, as we know after last week's expose, the band might plan in advance. At least they weren't more than an hour and a half late, as they were the previous night. Karma kicked back at the band when fans started to throw glasses and money at the stage, prompting bassist Tommy Stinson to warn the crowd that they would cancel the rest of the show if it continued. Do you think GN'R need to rethink their policies before enraging their entire fan base? Share your opinion in the comments.

    They are not Guns N Roses, it is Axl and friends. GNR stopped being GNR a long time ago.

    Who cares... Axl has been a tool for the past 15 years and we all know. You know what really broke my day? Knowing about the death of the russian "Trololololo" singer ):

    GNR is one of my favorite bands! I want to like Axl Rose, but he is just such a childish prick. I lose respect for him every time something like this happens.

    I think that Axel should stop using "Guns N Roses" as the name for his tribute band... 'cause he gives a bad reputation to that awesome band.

    It was announced on the radio when i was at work. I can't believe people still buy tickets knowing that they are going to be treated like shit. They're like a beaten wife in denial!
    Abzzz
    Wow, Axl, just when i tought you cant go on any lower...
    Slashiepie
    People need to stop buying tickets. How much disrespect do fans tske ? Next article Axl throws up on the public, pees on front row fans and starts insulting the staff and telling you momma jokes, because someone told him he was 5 hours late. After playing one song he canceled the show, because cocksuckers didnt EQ his voice right.. guess idiots will always be idiots and keep buying..

    Why do people even pay to see this piece of shit and his overrated band? Why don't they go see Slash instead?

    People still haven't gotten used to this? This is standard behavior for Axl. And people thought he had changed after that letter to his fans. Ha.
    Gee Halen
    Chinese democracy. I think Axl took lessons from Admiral General Aladeen lately.

    okay so what I'm getting from this all is "Remove the t-shirt of the guy who created most of the songs I play cause I hate his guts". WTF he only uses what he likes to take from a situation.

    Why can't they ****ing show up on time and play the show like any other band would, stop acting like you're still the biggest band in the world.

    How ****ing stupid is that guy wearing a Slash shirt. It's common knowledge Axl doesn't accept it. And 50 minutes late and only heard three songs. Lets say that's 15 minutes. So 65 minutes in total from the orginal starting time. Their shows usually last more than 2 hours or even longer. So that's 120 minutes from the original starting time. How the **** would you have even made it even when they showed up on time? You would have to leave early anyways.

    I don't know why people still support this douche...(Axl of course)

"Guns N' Roses fans were told to remove their Slash t-shirts or go home before his London appearance last Friday." look who didn't read. Not by direction of Axl, but in precautions made by the venue. Look you didn't read.
    That guy is still a faggot and i want to punch him the left testicle. Next: Venue asks fans to remove shoes and any spare change before the concert, all drinks were served on paper cones and anyone caught not paying attention to the Show was kicked out. After all the drama bitch might walk off stage..

    Checked. Try to take it easy guys. I know Axl is ridiculous, but try not to be so aggressive.

    I read it. I also read it 2 days ago on a few other sites. Just because it's printed doesn't make it true. One guy says he was told to remove his Slash shirt. One other guy says he was told to tell people to remove their Slash shirts. Even if those things are true, how does that bring you to the conclusion that Axl doesn't allow Slash shirts? As I said already, at the show I went to, there were Slash shirts everywhere, same as all the other shows. Judging by the fact that, at every other one of their shows, you could spend no more than 20 seconds searching for one, I'd assume that was no different at this one, since there's only one guy with a story about it. Besides, even if this was a rule to be enforced, since it has never come up before in the last 4+ years of heavy touring, wouldn't it be much more safe to assume that it was the venue trying to prevent an incident by doing this?

    How the hell is he entertaining, dude? Are you having fun and placing bets on if his balls will ever drop?

    LOLOL This guy has confidence issues. It's just a shirt, but then again, I'd pay more for a Slash shirt than an "Axl and friends" show. Also, another thumbs up for the picture that makes Axl look like Wario.

    I don't understand why people go to their shows. For one its not even GNR its Axl the angry lunatic and a few crappy musicians. Axl is the most ungrateful bag of crap in the industry.
