Fans Walk Out Of Guns N' Roses Manchester Show

Guns N' Roses arrived on stage so late in Manchester last night that many fans were forced to leave before they even saw the band perform.

Axl Rose and his band are famed for their late stage arrivals but pushed expectations to the extreme when they finally appeared on stage in Manchester on Tuesday night (May 29), hitting the stage at 11:15pm - a whole hour and fifteen minutes after their scheduled stage time.

When they did finally arrive on stage, they put in a mammoth three hour show resulting in fans not leaving the arena until gone 2am. It is estimated that around 40% of the audience at the Manchester MEN Arena left to catch transport home.

The band tweeted about the show, saying:

"A tip of the hat to the good folk at the M.E.N Arena Manchester To you say Manchester, United Kingdom rocks is an understatement! London calling!"

However, the fans who did stick around did not begrudge their heroes, with one fan posting on Twitter saying:

"Show ending at 2am, getting home at 7am. All worth it for @gunsnroses and bumping into @axlrose in Manchester."
