BBA Posted May 23, 2012 Share Posted May 23, 2012 (edited) Guns N' Roses fans were left furious when the band took to the stage more than two hours late at a concert in Liverpool.Frontman Axl Rose was pelted with a plastic pint of liquid during the band's second song Welcome To The Jungle - despite suffering from a leg injury.Angry fans blasted the rocker as "arrogant" as he left them waiting until 11pm before taking to the stage at the city's ECHO Arena on Sunday.The delay prompted many audience members to leave before the set began to catch their last trains home.Rose, 50, was booed and jeered by fans when he came onto the stage and during the set, which did not finish until 2am.The ECHO Arena holds a round-the-clock-licence, meaning that the band were allowed to finish their set in the early hours of Monday morning.Fan Steven Phillips, 33, did not manage to get home until 2amThe dad-of-two said: "The doors opened at 6.30pm but they did not come on until 11pm. People were starting to chant derogatory comments and boo."The band were unbelievable, but just for the arrogance - to come walking on with no explanation - I think it was disgraceful."I have two kids and my wife was going spare. I have spent my life going to concerts. I went to see Paul McCartney and he came on stage on time."Fan Alun Matthews, 25, added: "It makes no logistical sense to start so late as there was only one support band."Obviously they could've fit in another decent band in that time which would've been better, especially considering the ticket price."After about 50 minutes sections of the crowd were whistling, booing and throwing objects onto the stage."This is not the first time the band have turned up late on this tour.Earlier in the month they turned up an hour and a half late to their show at Dublin's O2 Arena, and were more than two hours late to a concert at Moscow's Stadium Live.http://www.clickliverpool.com/news/local-news/1216187-fan-fury-at-two-hour-wait-for-guns-n%5C-roses-liverpool-gig.html Edited May 23, 2012 by bringbackadler Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
