Guns N' Roses Arrived Late Again at London Concert


Not learning from their experience in Dublin, the band repeated the same mistake at London's O2 by arriving more than an hour late.

Guns N' Roses provoked the fury of their British fans once again on Wednesday, October 13 night by taking to the stage at their gig in London an hour late. The tardy rockers came under fire in the U.K. over the summer when their performances at the Reading and Leeds music festivals in August were cut short after overrunning the event's official curfew.

Just days later, the band was forced off stage in Dublin, Ireland when the impatient crowd began pelting them with bottles over a 60-minute delay. Axl Rose's group faced a hostile reception in Britain again this week after they left the audience at London's O2 Arena waiting from more than an hour.

During the gig, Rose took the time to quell any dissent in the crowd by urging them not to throw their drinks on stage in a bid to avoid a repeat of the scenes in Dublin. He said, "Now, now, now, let's not be throwing things, because you might miss me and you might hit one of these nice people down at the front. And we wouldn't want that to happen."

The band over-ran the venue's 11pm curfew, but organizers let the rockers play until midnight.

    One bottle thrown does not mean the crowd were in an uproar; it means some little immature punk thought it would be funny to annoy Axl Rose (the lead singer made a joke about it and the audience were on his side!). It was an amazing night and I waited any normal time to see the band, as I would any other (1 hour for set up etc).

    Does not excuse the lack of respect they show their fans. Rock is not an excuse to hide behind. Some people missed out on a third of the concert because they had to get home.

    Guns and Roses might have showed up "late" (in effect at 09.36pm) but the audience was not hostile at all. We are talking about Rock and Roll here. They played until 00.20am.
