Axl Rose Apologizes for 2002 Philadelphia No-Show
Posted 29 February 2012 - 04:30 AM
The infamous GnR non-concert happened Dec. 6, 2002, at the Philly basketball/hockey arena now known as the Wells Fargo Center. When the band failed to show by 11:15 p.m., the concert was called off — prompting some disappointed audience members to throw chairs and cause other damage to the building.
And that no-show was only the beginning. Ultimately, the remainder of GnR’s tour was canceled as well.
Speaking between songs in Philly on Monday night, Rose rambled for a few minutes about the 2002 fiasco and alluded to an unspecified illness as his excuse for not being there (previous reports had indicated the band was still in New York from the previous night’s gig). He also called out his former manager and then-promoter Clear Channel Communications for what he felt were counterproductive and conflicting actions during that tour.
“So it’s good to be here with you people tonight,” Rose said in conclusion. “I want to apologize for my part of that [situation]. … I’m not saying I’m innocent.”

Ever since the Freddie Mercury tribute where Axel stayed at the Elton John estate, he nor Guns n Roses have never been quite the same:devil:
I would say, Axl is off to a good start. Now, can he just apologize for the crab-walk?!
