Stage Collapses At GN'R Rio Show

Severe weather added to the mounting problems Axl Rose has encountered during the Guns N' Roses tour.  Torrential rains in the Rio de Janeiro area contributed to the collapse of a portion of the massive stage at Apoteose Stadium Sunday (3/14) (Photo).   Injuries in the near disaster were reportedly few and not severe, and did not involve fans or performers.  The news follows reports that fans attending a private party in a San Paulo club the group was supposed to play Thursday (3/11) staged a near-riot when told GNR would not appear.  A concert two nights later in the city was almost stopped after bottles thrown from the crowd pelted the stage during the band's first song.
