In a new all-time low Guns N’ Roses instructs security to turn away anyone with a Slash t-shirt.
The division between Guns N’ Roses’ current line-up and their former members is well documented, with the fallout between singer Axl Rose and guitarist Slash particularly infamous.
However, the current line-up’s management team have taken extreme steps to distance themselves from their classic versiom, by banning anyone coming to their UK tour from wearing a Slash t-shirt.
During the band’s gig at London’s O2 Arena last night (May 31), an NME source noticed that a member of the crowd was bare-chested under his jacket. When asked why, 18-year old James Revell said he was told to remove his top because no one was allowed in wearing a Slash T-shirt.
The source then asked security if this was the case and was told by a member of the venue’s team: “We were told by the management not to allow anyone into the O2 Arena who is wearing a Slash T-shirt and we are asking anyone who is to remove it and if they refuse they will be turned away.”
Then asked what about the people sitting at the back who cannot be seen from the stage, the security guard replied: “This is what we were told.”
