Guns N’ Roses has recently concluded their European tour with a tweet. Singer Axl Rose, used his twitter account to express both his outrage and gratitude.
On July 16, Rose tweeted a long message. He started by saying thanks to all of their fans for their support, despite the numerous times of postponing the show due to his medical condition. He also did not forget to mention the whole team for helping them all throughout the tour.
Then he also sent his utmost gratitude to Carrie Underwood and her team for coming all the way to to the UK for their shows. Rose jokingly added “at least someone could sing!!” Next, he mentioned that in an effort to pay their respects to their friend, Taylor Hawkins, Foo Fighters drummer who passed away this year, the band is dedicating the success of their show to him, adding:
“Taylor was a really great guy and it was always great to see him! He was a great n’ always welcome part of touring these last few years.”
Lastly, he thanked the people of Ukraine for their noble and horrifying fight against the Russian President, Vladimir Putin, whom he called an ambitious person that has no regard to human life. The rocker said:
“[Russia] is ran by a callous, lying, murderous, little man with outdated ambitions and no regard for human life.”
Rose then closed his statement by saying:
“Looking forward to seeing everyone in South America!! See you soon!!!”
