The ‘Guns N’ Roses’ have banned fans from wearing Slash t-shirts to their UK gigs
If you are a fan of the ‘Guns N’ Roses’ and intend to attend their UK gigs then you must not wear Slash t-shirts. The band has banned them. Apparently it is a form of retaliation against their former bandmate Slash. Specifically they do not want to see his logo and image at the London gigs which are scheduled to take place on Thursday and Friday. Reporters uncovered the truth when a fan complained that he was stripped of his Slash t-shirt by security operatives when he was attempting to enter the O2 Arena gig on Thursday.
v A band at war: According to a source, he asked the security staff whether everyone wearing the guitarist’s merchandise was going to be disrobed. They then spilled the beans: “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.” James Revell was angered by the decision: “I believe they asked me to do this because Axl Rose has some problem with Slash and if he saw me wearing the shirt he might have stormed off stage. He referred to the incident as an ‘insulting’ experience.
The band is well known for their late arrivals. The ‘Guns N’ Roses’ further marred the show with their typical tardiness, a big no-no for Revell: “I had to sit there… and wait for Axl to turn up well over an hour late… we could only stay to watch three songs as we had to catch a train back”. The angry fan added: “I think that Axl Rose doesn’t appreciate his fans or anyone for that matter, he needs to grow up and stop acting like a child.”
On Friday night, the band wrapped up their UK tour with a second show at the O2 Arena in London. There has been furious war of words between Rose and his former guitarist. Slash quit the group in 1996 and there has been bad blood since.
