The new GUNS N' ROSES concert dates have sparked controversy before the first soundcheck - frontman Axl Rose reportedly fought with paparazzi before he left Los Angeles on Wednesday night (09Dec09) to tune up.
The rocker was on his way to catch a plane to Taipei, Taiwan, where Guns N' Roses will play a much-anticipated concert on Friday (11Dec09), when he was involved in an alleged scuffle with cameramen.
Airport police at LAX have no record of the altercation and Rose's assistant hasn't responded to requests for details, but RollingStone.com reports the scrap ended "with a few bloodied participants".
Guns N' Roses are booked to perform four upcoming shows in Taiwan, Korea and Japan.
Corgan took to Instagram to confirm rumours of new Pumpkins material, saying the first songs could arrive as early as May.
