Guns N’ Roses stormed off stage at a concert in Dublin, Ireland on Wednesday after angry fans pelted the band with bottles for turning up over an hour late.

The rockers were greeted with a chorus of boos as they started their concert behind schedule, and were forced to stop the set after just 20 minutes when revellers began hurling missiles at them.

A fuming Axl Rose warned the audience he would scrap the show if the onslaught continued, saying, “Here’s the deal: One more bottle and we go home.

“It’s up to you. We would like to stay. We want to stay. We want to have some fun.

“If you don’t want to have fun, all you’ve got to do is let us know. We’ve got no problem – we’ll go on our way.”

The group then left the stage, only to return after an hour to finish the show.
