Guns N' Roses booed in Manchester

After waiting for more than 90 minutes, angry fans in Manchester, England on Monday (October 18) greeted Guns N’ Roses with boos and jeers as they took to the stage.

The band’s UK tour has been plagued with such reactions to their continued late appearances and the group are currently facing a fine of $108,000 (£72,000) for breaking their curfew at a performance at London’s O2 Arena on Thursday (October 14).

The show on Monday at the M.E.N. Arena also went more than two hours over the 11pm finish time.  Many ticket-holders had to leave before the end in order to catch public transport.

However, there will be no fine for this indiscretion as a representative for the venue tells 'Manchester Evening News', “The M.E.N Arena holds a 24-hour entertainment licence. However, to tie in with local transport links, we always ask that shows finish by 11pm. The majority of acts comply with this policy, however Guns N' Roses have a well-publicised history of late performances of which their fans are fully aware. Last night's late finish would have been no surprise to the majority of fans.”
