Apparently Axl Rose is having a rough time of it over in Europe.
First there was public outcry over Rose’s so-called ban against attendees wearing Slash t-shirts to Guns N’ Roses concerts – a rule security enforced last week (May 31) at London’s O2 Arena, due to the feud between Rose and GNR’s original guitar god. But that wasn’t all for London drama: The crowd reportedly threw plastic cups and money at the members of GNR because they were nearly an hour late in taking the O2 stage, at which point they threatened to walk off.
Now CNN reports that $200,000 worth of Rose’s personal jewelry was stolen in Paris, at an after-party for Guns N’ Roses’ Paris show last night (June 5).
The three diamond-and-gold necklaces that were stolen were not being worn by Rose at the time, but rather, being guarded by his own personal security squad in a private lounge. Local police, who are currently investigating the theft, noted that only invited guests and Axl’s entourage were permitted to enter the area containing the jewelry.
Axl’s got a long way to go on the GNR tour of Europe, which runs through July 22.
