The capitals Guns N Roses fans may in for a rough night in the mosh pit after Dublin got the full Axl circus treatment.
The American rockers turned up an hour late for their set last night at Ireland's O2 Centre then walked off stage after coming under a barrage of bottles only to return to a half empty stadium.
Last weekend their equipment for switched off at Reading Festival for going over the allotted time,
The 'Paradise City' band have sold out London's O2 on 13th October but have added another date the day after.
Apparently due to go on at 9.15pm, the band finally appeared on stage at 10.25pm. The crowd were rather rowdy by this point and some decided to start throwing stuff at Axl.
After two songs Rose told his audience "one more bottle and we're going home, we're here to have fun and we hope you are too, but one more and we are gone". When, three songs later, another bottle was thrown on stage Rose made good on his promise and stormed off stage.
According to entertainment.ie, ten minutes later a member of venue staff bravely took to the stage to tell the audience that there were some "technical difficulties", but that they were trying to get Axl to return to the stage. Ten minutes after that the house lights came on. The majority of the audience took this to mean the show was over and went home.
But some increasingly rowdy fans remained. Which was just as well, really, given at 11.25pm Axl and his band finally returned and carried on playing. Those gig goers left, Axl proclaimed, were the "real fans". So, well done them.
No word yet from venue, promoters or the band as to whether any of the audience members who left when the house lights went up will get a refund. As for whose fault the whole shambles was, well, Axl's yet to remark.
