Axl's Late Arrival Greeted With Thrown Drink

Guns N' Roses concert goers should come to expect late starts. But, it didn't stop one fan from expressing a little anger over waiting for Axl in Australia. WENN reports that a fan tossed a drink at Rose when the band got off to a late start for a Brisbane gig.

Apparently the band didn't start until nearly midnight and some fans who paid well over $100 dollars a ticket weren't happy. The report says that not long into their classic "Welcome To The Jungle" someone hurled a can at Axl. In response, Rose reportedly challenged the audience, "Is that what you want? You want a battle. If you're going to act like that, then you know I don't have to be here." Despite some reported long disappearances during songs, Rose did finish the show.

Now that's a sign Axl has grown. Years ago he would have jumped in the crowd or stomped off. One question I have for security there though is, who lets a can into a concert? Having full cans of anything tossed at you is no fun, even for someone who may deserve some razzing for apparently not learning to tell time or respect those that have.
