It looks like someone’s in the market for Axl Rose’s bling-bling. The Guns N’ Roses frontman was robbed of $200,000 in jewelry after a gig in Paris.
June 5th, Guns N’ Roses were in Paris for a concert. The band is going through a pretty challenging tour, with tardy shows, all sort of annoyances their fans were put through and even a gig where they’ve been pelted with pint glasses and money. The thing is that as long as Axl Rose is with Guns N’ Roses that sort of things are all in a day’s work.
For Axl Rose the tour wasn’t exactly a breath of fresh air. Fans were reminded how immature the 50-year-old star actually is. The Paris gig at Palais Omnisports de Paris – Bercy Stadium was surely the last straw to break the camel’s back. Axl Rose was robbed of $200,000 in jewelry.
The robber was in fact a woman, and according to AFP she was eventually arrested. The woman had taken three gold and diamond necklaces that Axl Rose says they’re worth about $200,000. The necklaces were stolen during a private gathering that Axl Rose and the band attended.
Apart from that, it looks like Axl Rose has decided he never wants to see his fans wearing a Slash shirt. A report in England’s NME magazine says that fans wearing Slash T-shirts were asked to remove them ahead a Guns N’ Roses concert at O2 Arena in London. Security guards with the O2 Arena said:
“We were told by the management not to allow anyone into the O2 Arena who is wearing a Slash T-shirt, and we are asking anyone who is to remove it, and if they refuse, they will be turned away”.
Looks like it is getting harder and harder to see Guns N’ Roses performing. The trouble is that fans are going to soon get enough of the late shows and Axl’s “special requests”. On top of that, the band simply doesn’t seem to have learned anything from the times their fans have protested against their disrespectful tardy show ups. But, that’s not to worry, there’s a lot of spare change fans have lying through their pockets and could do without. Maybe Guns N’ Roses should start a piggy bank with all that spare change.
