Birmingham Prepares For GUNS N' ROSES

According to the Sunday Mercury, promoters of tonight's (Sunday, October 17) GUNS N' ROSES concert at Birmingham, England's NEC have hinted that the group might be allowed to play through the curfew. An LG Arena spokesman said singer Axl Rose and his bandmates would be encouraged to adhere to the stage times agreed, but added that they wanted everyone to enjoy the show.

GUNS N' ROSES is reportedly facing a fine of more than $100,000 after breaking 11 p.m. concert curfews at the band's two concerts at the O2 arena in London this past week.

According to The Sun, GUNS N' ROSES overran the curfew with both their shows (October 13 and October 14) by a total of three hours.

This latest drama follows the controversial GUNS N' ROSES August 2010 gigs at England's Reading and Leeds festivals, where the band came onstage late despite warnings from the promoters, and had both sets cut short.

On September 1, GUNS N' ROSES walked off the stage in Dublin, Ireland just 22 minutes into its set — after keeping fans waiting for well over an hour for the group to begin playing. The band returned an hour later to perform to a diminished crowd.
