Official: AXL ROSE Not To Blame For GUNS N' ROSES' Late Start At ROCK 'N REV Festival

According to the Rapid City Journal, GUNS N' ROSES late start Friday night (August 13) at the Rock 'N Rev festival at the 70th annual Sturgis Bike Rally in Sturgis, South Dakota was not the fault of singer Axl Rose, despite widespread speculation to the contrary.

Dan Catullo, one of the festival's founders, told the Rapid City Journal that a technical glitch that took longer than expected to fix caused GUNS N' ROSES' set to begin at 12:50 a.m. Saturday — around an hour and 20 minutes later than scheduled.

The late start upset some of those at the concert who threw beer bottles and cans at the stage while waiting.
