My buddies and I flew out to Vegas this weekend and went to the Saturday night show. I've been to like 10 GnR shows, all in the NYC area previously. I'll give the band credit. They really brought it. 3 plus hours. Lot of intensity. Sounded really good, although if I'm being totally honest Axl sounded better as the concert went on. November Rain from the suspended piano 8' above my head was just ridiculous.

At the end of the show Axl tosses the mic into the crowd like he always does. Every single show I have ever been to it has been my dream to grab it. It lands like 10 feet away from my friend and I. The guy standing next to us picks it up and my buddy immediatly says "I'll give you $100 for that right now." Amazingly the guy says '"Sure". He gives it to us. We have the fucking thing. We are jubiliant. We are extatic. 5 seconds later security walks over and orders us to give him the mic back.

I have seen Axl toss the mic at EVERY show I have been to, and I have never seen security ask for it back. Complete and utter fucking bullshit.

Why throw the fucking thing into the crowd and cause a goddamn riot if you are just gonna ask for it back? Forget about the thing breaking or getting stepped on. The guy gave us our $100 back, but it ruined what would have been the single greatest concert experience of my life.

Here's the bottom line, at least from my perspective. If Axl wants to come out at midnight and play until 3AM, that's fine by me. That's how rock n' roll is supposed to be. The hardcore sawdust and beer, late as fuck, rock music culture that I love and is one of the core reasons why I love Axl and GnR. Basically maintaining that image is the only thing he apparently DOES give a fuck about. It what Axl prides himself on.

You can't have it both ways though. It's either balls to the wall rock n' roll, or it's corporate money making. Throwing a mic into a crowd at 3AM, only to ask for it back is basically 180 degrees from what Axl and GnR stand for.

I understand Axl may not know they are confiscating the mic after he tosses it, but he should. It's his image and good name they are fucking with when pull this shit with his biggest fans.

Fuck you The Joint/Hard Rock.

Than you should let him know this. Just mail it on fb, twitter and so on.
Maybe Ron and DJ as well, since they actually read, what is posted.

I do not use any social media outlets, but I would, from the absolute bottom of my heart appreciate it anyone here could do this for me.

Forget me. My friend who had the thing in his hand is the biggest GnR fan I know. Since the day I have known him we have joked/dreamed about how sick it would be to catch the mic at a GnR show. Then it happens, and at a Saturday Night Show in Vegas no less, and we have it taken away from us.

I think I may start a seperate thread asking for help.

I give you all my word. This is 100% preciesely what went down.

It sucks and all but with all due respect, you guys didn't catch the mic. Maybe someone saw that a profit was being made on it so that's why it was taken away? Not sure but that sucks! Glad you got your money back from that guy.
