A GUNS N' ROSES
fan is reportedly planning on taking legal action against the band's lead singer, Axl Rose
, after the rocker threw his cordless microphone into the crowd during the opening night of GUNS N' ROSES
' Australian tour in Perth on Saturday, hitting the fan in the face and damaging his two front teeth.
39-year old Darren Wright
says he was left bleeding, and wants Rose
to pay his dental bills, with the tour promoter apologizing and offering a signed microphone from the musician instead.
"With the bright lights and explosions, I couldn't see anything," Wright
told The West Australian
. "The next thing I knew, I was whacked in the mouth. I thought I had been punched. I was quite stunned and it took a few seconds to realize what was going on. I could feel bits of teeth in my mouth. Then someone is climbing through my legs to grab the microphone."
He added: "I don't think [Axl
] intended to do it, but it came at me at a fairly flat and hard trajectory. Those cordless microphones are not light. I'm surprised it didn't do more damage. At the very least, I want someone to pay to get my teeth fixed."Wright
said a dentist told him he would have to have months of dental work costing at least AUD 5000 (approximately $5154).GUNS N' ROSES
