Guns N’ Roses fans are certainly a dedicated bunch and they don’t like to be disappointed. Axl Rose and his crew cancelled a show in Sao Paula, Brazil on Saturday (March 13) which resulted in a riot, according to chartattack.com.
The crowd apparently waited until 3am but were then told GNR would not be performing according to the New York Post.
“The audience got angry and started to mount the stage, and fight and destroy everything,” a witness told the newspaper. “It was wild. There were fights everywhere, on the dance floor, in the bathrooms, outside the club. Crazy. I guess the free drinks didn’t help.”
So why was the show cancelled? Apparently on Saturday someone in the audience tried to bottle Axl. This understandably infuriated the singer and he called the show to a halt.
“Where’s the little fuck over here?” Rose reportedly said, according to the website. “C’mon, coward. You wanna fuck up the show for everybody? ‘Cause I’ve got no problem — I will leave. We will all leave. You wanna play games? You can fuck yourself or we can have some fun. You guys wanna have fun? Then I don’t need no little fucking pussies like we had the other night at the club.”
To make matters worse GNR’s Sunday (March 14) show was cancelled after the stage collapsed in Rio De Janeiro. Although there were initial reports that someone died in the collapse, later reports confirmed injuries were minor.
