Just say “no” to flying drones, says Axl Rose of Guns N’ Roses

These days, you never know what you’re going to see at a concert. In fact, drones have been a common sighting at concerts lately, and those drones are usually recording concerts. It’s a trend that Guns N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose doesn’t like- at all. Rose recently took to social media to post a statement about drones at concerts, describing that seeing the flying objects during a show can be really distracting.

“Had a few drones this leg. Last night (Gold Coast Australia) was probably the most intrusive,” Rose said in the message. “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 the stage. According to police, it happens more often than not lately, especially wit sporting events. It’s not something we’re all that used to. A lot of impulsive reactions went through (sic) everyone’s minds that after thinking about it (which when you’re (sic) live there’s really no time to sort things out like that) didn’t make sense.”

“People were pissed,” Rose continued. “However much fun anyone’s having, you’re (sic) still trying to stay focused n’ do your (sic) job n’ give the fans the best show you can. Anyway… we get it can be ‘fun’ to get your (sic) drone bootleg vid but we’d appreciate it if anyone planning to b a drone pirate took the fans n’ band into consideration and n’ played w/ your (sic) toys somewhere else.” Read Rose’s entire statement below.

In other news, Guns N’ Roses recently issued a major “Use Your Illusion I & II” box set packing 96 songs, including a fresh version of “November Rain” featuring a 50-piece orchestra.
