GUNS N’ ROSES frontman Axl Rose ejected an unruly fan during the band’s headlining concert this past Saturday night (December 17) at Pacific Coliseum in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. “That’s the first person I’ve had thrown out for 100 shows,” Rosesaid from the stage. “Like the good old days.”
Fan-filmed video footage of the incident can be seen below.
The last time GUNS N’ ROSES was due to play in Vancouver, in November 2002, fans of the legendary rock band erupted in anger when Rose unexpectedly canceled the show at GM Place.
Police moved in to disperse the rioting crowd and allegedly injured at least two men in the process.
“On behalf of the city I’d like to thank you for not tearing the place up,” Rose said at the very end of Saturday’s three-hour concert. “I apologize for my part in any past affairs.”
Ex-GUNS N’ ROSES bassist Duff McKagan joined the latest version of GUNS on stage in Vancouver to perform two GN’R classics: “You Could Be Mine” and “Civil War”.
McKagan also performed “You Could Be Mine” with GUNS on Friday at the Key Arena in Seattle.
Duff‘s band LOADED opened for GUNS at both the Seattle and Vancouver shows.
McKagan made worldwide headlines in October 2010 when he joined GUNS onstage for four songs at a concert in London, England, marking the first time he had set foot on a stage with GUNS N’ ROSES in 17 years.
GUNS N’ ROSES will be inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame next April in Cleveland, prompting speculation about whether the event could lead to a reunion of the band’s original lineup.
