Axl Rose banned Slash t-shirts from London show
In what might be the silliest, yet most infuriating news to come out recently on the concert scene, reports are stating that rock band Guns N' Roses banned anyone wearing a Slash t-shirt from entering the arena at their show in London at the O2 Arena.
Lead singer Axl Rose is known to do this sort of thing along with late start times (he was over an hour late this time) and other general childish behavior. Still, the arena's security was asked to specifically ask those wearing t-shirts of former guitarist Slash to take them off or they would not be allowed to enter.
Not too much of a shame though, seeing as Guns N' Roses has basically become an Axl Rose solo band, which is something most people wouldn't enjoy.
