Already more than an hour late on stage in Melbourne, G'n'R compounded their folly when they shouted "Sydney!" when they finally arrived.
Reformed rock legends Guns N’ Roses were greeted with heckling and booing from an audience in Melbourne this week, as they took to the stage more than an hour late and got the name of the city totally wrong.
The American rock act are in the middle of the Asia / Oceania leg of their extensive Not In This Lifetime tour, which sees the so-called ‘classic line-up’ members Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan sharing a stage for the first time since 1993.
However, when they called in at Melbourne Cricket Ground on Tuesday night (February 14th), they arrived late and greeted the crowd by shouting ‘Sydney’. Oops.

The band return to the UK for the first time in over two decades.
The recently reformed GUNS N' ROSES have announced a bunch of new dates for their Not In This Lifetime tour next year, with the event spanning North America, Europe and Asia. They have been on the road a lot already this year, playing throughout North and South America and singer Axl Rose breaking off for a spell to front AC/DC on their tour.
Guns N' Roses embark on a worldwide tour
The tour includes their first appearance in the UK since 1993 and it also looks like they'll be in Europe and unoccupied on June 25th; that's the last day of Glastonbury Festival for those who didn't spot it straight away. Could they be the Sunday night headliners? It would certainly make sense after their stellar set at Coachella back in April.

Stradlin took to Twitter to say that Axl and the band "didn't want to split the loot equally".
Having marked himself out as the only original member of Guns N’ Roses not to participate in the current reunion, guitarist Izzy Stradlin has drawn speculation from Gunners fans as to why he’s refused to play along.
Finally, he’s broken his silence on social media by replying to lead singer Axl Rose’s comments last week, saying that the financial split for the tour wasn’t satisfactory for him.
Rose had told a Brazilian TV station on Tuesday, ahead of Guns N’ Roses’ string of South American tour dates, that 54 year old Stradlin just wasn’t up for it, and didn’t go into details except to imply that he was disorganised and unreliable.

Guns N' Roses were detained at the Canadian border last week for gun possession but they're adamant the weapon didn't belong to them.
GUNS N' ROSES were detained at the Canadian border last week after they were caught with a gun in their possession.
The hard rock band were stopped at the airport in Toronto last Friday (15.07.16) ahead of their gig later that day in the city in Ontario, and found with the weapon on them.
Frontman Axl Rose later told the audience at the gig held at the Rogers Centre: ''We weren't exactly arrested. We were detained. They [the custom officers] were very nice, they were very understanding. You know, it happens: You can forget you have a fucking gun. It wasn't my gun.''

The three main headliners might be booked, but there's always 'secret gigs' and surprise guests...
It’s that time of year again: the annual rumour mill of who is going to be making appearances at Glastonbury, plausible or otherwise. Although the three Pyramid Stage headliners have been revealed – Muse on Friday, Adele on Saturday, and Coldplay rounding things off on Sunday – there are literally several hundred other slots to be filled on the numerous other stages.
The Sunday afternoon ‘legends slot’ has also already been confirmed, with ELO set to entertain the crowds. However, there are always rumours flying around during the festival itself as to who’s going to be making low-key, surprise appearances. The reformed Libertines did so last year, appearing at the Pyramid Stage. So, are there any major names that might do this in 2016?

The Guns 'N' Roses frontman is reportedly poised to replace Brian Johnson as the AC/DC 'Rock Or Bust' tour resumes.
With their lead singer Brian Johnson sidelined with immediate effect because of his hearing problems, AC/DC are now reportedly considering inviting Guns ‘N’ Roses’ frontman Axl Rose to step in and provide lead vocals when their North American tour resumes.
In a report by Alternative Nation, a radio DJ from Atlanta named Jason Bailey claims that a “very very good source” has told him that the legendary rockers will recruit the controversial Gunners singer Rose for the remainder of their North American tour dates, having flown him to the US city to audition with them.

Official confirmation finally arrives.
It's official; GUNS N' ROSES featuring Axl Rose and Slash will re-unite for the 2016 Coachella Music And Arts Festival in April, marking their first performance together in twenty years. It's probably one of the most seminal reunions in rock history - and one that many thought would never happen.
There's been speculation of a reunion for weeks and now the news has finally been confirmed. Despite years of animosity between Slash and Axl Rose in particular, the pair have appeared to clear the air - at least for the sake of the band and their fans. Original bassist Duff McKagan will also join the group and, while there's no word yet on guitarist Izzy Stradlin, sources told Consequence Of Sound that Matt Sorum will replace original drummer Steven Adler.

We're pretty sure that the Iron Maiden lead singer speaks for a great many people in the music industry.
In a new interview with Le Journal de Montréal, the rock veteran recalled an incident on May 16th, 1988 when the Gunners, then on the rise to their meteoric success with their debut album Appetite For Destruction, opened for the more established Iron Maiden in Quebec City in Canada.

The Guns ’n’ Roses frontman and guitarist Slash are though not to have spoken since 1996.
Guns ’n’ Roses frontman Axl Rose and former member Slash are reportedly on speaking terms again, nearly 20 years after the guitarist’s exit from the band. In an interview with Swedish website Aftonbladet, Slash revealed that the two have finally buried the hatchet, saying that the reunion was ‘probably way overdue’.
Slash has said he’s buried the hatchet with Axl Rose.
When asked during the interview if he and Rose had ‘made friends again’ Slash said, "It was probably way overdue, you know. But it's very cool at this point to dispel some of that negative stuff that was going on for so long."

View of books on Display - GUNS N' ROSES basssist Duff Mckagan signs copies of his new book 'How to Be a Man (And Other Illusions)' at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino at The Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino - Hollywood, Florida, United States - Friday 15th May 2015
The frontman was recently named as the world best singer due to his impressive vocal range.
Axl Rose is infamous for many reasons. His constant late appearances, sometimes taking to the stage almost two hours after their billed start, means every recent Guns n’ Roses tour is dogged by disgruntled fans and a swathe of bad press. The singer is notorious for his cantankerous temperament which has resulted in numerous cancelled appearances and YouTube-worthy angry rants that would give even Kanye West’s irritable soliloquys a run for their money. He is so surrounded by criticism that it is no surprise the frontman’s vocal attributes are often overlooked.
Rose has posted a bashful response to the award of "World's Best Singer"
Now, the singer has been named as the best vocalist of all time on a recently published chart, an accolade that is extremely misleading given the nature of the basis for which the award has been meted out to the rock legend. The award is based on versatility in vocal range rather than any consideration for tone, grain or strength which are commonly considered as the most endearing vocal traits.
