GUNS N' ROSES frontman Axl Rose was left fuming at a Brisbane, Australia concert when a fan unhappy with the band's late arrival onstage threw a drink at him.
Rose and his bandmates took the Brisbane Entertainment Center stage at 11.45pm on Wednesday (20Jun07), angering fans who had paid up to AUS$175 ($150/GBP75) to attend.
Seconds into opening song Welcome To The Jungle, a can of drink narrowly missed Rose, although its contents still managed to splatter the singer.
He told the crowd, "Is that what you want? You want a battle. If you're going to act like that, then you know I don't have to be here.''
Rose proceeded to walk offstage throughout the set, forcing his bandmates to improvise extended solos to cover his absence, reports the Sydney Daily Telegraph.
The actor plays the Queen frontman in the forthcoming movie 'Bohemian Rhapsody'.
The novel's author saw a cut of the film and loved each of the changes the movie's director had made.
The filmmaker departed the project over differing 'visions'.
