It seems that way.
According to NME.com, a fan attending Guns N’ Roses’ concert at London, England’s O2 Arena May 31 claims he was told to remove his shirt before entering the venue.
Why? He was told no one was allowed in wearing merchandise bearing the likeness of the band’s former guitarist Slash.
NME.com’s source asked security if this was the case and was told by a member of the venue’s team, “We were told by the management not to allow anyone into the O2 Arena who is wearing a Slash T-shirt and we are asking anyone who is to remove it, and if they refuse, they will be turned away.”
That’s so fucking childish. Who gives a fuck, man? I told you he hated Slash, and didn’t go to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction because he wanted to avoid dude.
In January 2010, Fernando Lebeis, the son of Beta Lebeis — Guns N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose’s personal assistant — denied reports that security at GN’R’s Winnipeg concert banned fans from wearing Slash tees inside.
TMZ reported that concert security informed fans at the January 13, 2010 show they were required to turn their Slash t-shirts inside out…and leave their top hats outside.
A member of the concert security team said instructions were passed down from “a producer for the band.”
Grow up, Asshole. I mean, Axl.
