Axl Rose Urges Fans Not To Fly Their Drones Around At Guns N’ Roses’ Live Shows


Given the obvious potential safety risks, especially when around a show with pyro, flying in an unauthorized drone to catch a big rock show isn’t the smartest course of action. Axl Rose, vocalist for diamond-certified hard rock titans Guns N’ Roses, recently vented about the practice, stating the following on Twitter last night (November 24th) amid their Australian headlining run.

“Had a few drones this leg. Last night (Gold Coast Australia) was probably the most intrusive. Was a bit of a distraction as obviously someone thought it was just ok to be doing that but also it coming that close in front of the stage and then actually over n’ on stage.

According to the police it happens more often than not lately especially with sporting events. It’s not something we’re all that used it. A lot of impulse reactions wen thru everyone’s minds that after thinking about it (when ur live there’s really no time to really sort things out like that) didn’t make much sense.

People were pissed. However much fun anyone’s having ur still trying to stay focused n’ do ur job n’ give the fans the best show u can. Anyway… We get it can b “fun” to get ur drone bootleg vid but we’d appreciate it if anyone planning to b a drone pirate took the fans n’ the band into consideration n’ played w/ur toys somewhere else. Big thank you in advance!”

The band’s aforementioned tour with The Chats, Cosmic Psychos (Australian dates) & Alien Weaponry (New Zealand dates) runs as follows:

11/27 Sydney, AUS – Accor Stadium
11/29 Adelaide, AUS – Adelaide Oval
12/03 Melbourne, AUS – Melbourne Cricket Ground
12/08 Wellington, NZ – Sky Stadium
12/10 Auckland, NZ – Eden Park
