GUNS N' ROSES: Oslo Concert To Go Ahead

Deutsche Presse-Agentur is reporting that GUNS N' ROSES's scheduled performance Wednesday (June 28) in Oslo, Norway will go ahead as planned, the day after frontman Axl Rose was fined for assault charges stemming from an altercation in a Stockholm hotel.

Oslo tabloid Dagbladet reported that the band's private jet landed Tuesday evening at Oslo's Gardermoen Airport, some 90 minutes after Rose was released from Swedish police custody.

After spending almost 12 hours in Swedish police custody, prosecutor Fredrik Ingblad ordered Rose's release Tuesday evening after Rose signed a statement admitting to minor assault of a security guard and damaging hotel property, police spokeswoman Towe Hagg told Deutsche Presse-Agentur.

Ingblad ordered Rose to pay a fine of 40,000 kronor (5,450 dollars) and damages of 10,000 kronor (1,360 dollars) for hitting the guard and biting him in the leg.

The band are also slated to perform at the Roskilde music festival in Denmark, which opens Thursday.
