Despite The “Stressful Times”
Guns N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose took to social media to thank their fans’ support following the end of the North American leg of We’re F’N Back tour. They wrapped up the trek at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, FL on Sunday.
“Again huge thanks to everyone who came out to the shows,” Rose said in a statement. “A special thanks for everyone for working with us to protect your safety, the safety of each other, the safety of our crew and the venue’s crews following our COVID protocol. These are stressful times (which is an understatement) and your cooperation and participation is greatly appreciated and not taken for granted.”
Rose also thanked Wolfgang Van Halen and Mammoth WFH for supporting GnR on the tour.
Meanwhile, at a GnR gig at the Etess Arena in Atlantic City, Rose spoke about Izzy Stradlin.
“This next one is the first song that was written for Guns N’ Roses,” Rose told the crowd before launching into Don’t Cry. “I went over to Izzy [Stradlin]’s and I threw some rocks at his window. He came to the window and was worried I came over there to kick his ass. We’d been in an argument for a few months. It was like the Blues Brothers. ‘We gotta get the band back together.’”
“We sat down,” he continued. “And I was like, ‘Hey, I got some really depressing lyrics.’ He was like, ‘I got a really depressing guitar part.’ I was like, ‘Perfect, we got it made.’”
GnR also moved the dates for the Australia and New Zealand legs to 2022.
