A chair removed during the infamous Guns N’ Roses fan riot in St. Louis was recently sold on eBay for $122.
Looking back on July 2, 1991, fans erupted in fury after the Gun N’ Roses singer, Axl Rose, left the stage at the Riverport Amphitheater in Missouri. Rose became very angry after seeing someone from the audience holding a camera. He shouted at security staff to deal with this matter, but they failed to do so.
Rose annoyingly said that time, “Thanks to the lame-ass security, I’m going home,” then left the audience to riot. He was later arrested and fined for the incident he caused. After that, the band didn’t return to St. Louis until 2017.
Meanwhile, an eBay user named tamwild-0 posted a chair for auction with the description note that says:
“I was in the audience at the GNR concert that ended in the infamous ban of GNR in St. Louis in ’91.
“A friend grabbed a chair during the mayhem on the way out and put it in my car. I’ve held on to this piece of history for 31 years. The wife said it’s time to find it a new home. I am auctioning the chair as well as the original ticket stub.”
The user who posted the item has no previous history on the site and didn’t even provide a picture of the actual chair, but surprisingly it still drew seven bids and closed at $122.50 even though an eBay rule states that “the sale of stolen property is not allowed on eBay. The sale of stolen property violates state, federal and international law, and we will work with law enforcement in any attempts to sell stolen property on eBay.”
