Things Get Worse For GNR

A few nights after a hostile reception during a long delayed and lame set at the Reading Festival (story), things got even uglier for Guns N Roses after Axl and the band kept fans in Dublin, Ireland waiting more than 90 minutes before taking the stage Wednesday (9/1).  When the set finally opened with Welcome To The Jungle, more than the verbal abuse that the Reading crowd unleashed came at them. Angry fans pelted the stage with bottles.  Announcements that the band wanted to stay but would only continue the show if the projectiles stopped only brought a bigger barrage of objects and profanity directed at the band.  Shortly after that announcement the band left the stage, ostensibly due to 'technical difficulties', and did not return.
