Axl Rose makes his feeling for the US President-elect abundantly clear again.
Guns N’ Roses smashed up a Donald Trump piñata on stage during their gig in Mexico City last night (November 30).
“Express yourself however you feel,” Axl Rose told the crowd as the band took bats to the Trump effigy. Watch fan-filmed footage of the incident below.
Rose has been vocal about his disdain for the US President-elect in the past. Writing on Twitter earlier this month, Rose asked if Trump ever stops “whining” after the politician complained about the way Mike Pence, his running mate, was treated at a recent Broadway performance of the musical Hamilton.
Rose also hit out at Trump for appointing Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions as his Attorney General. “Good people don’t listen to, acknowledge, nominate or elect people like Senator Jeff Sessions,” Rose wrote on Twitter.
Meanwhile, Guns N’ Roses have recently teased even more tour dates for 2017 in a new advert.
The band’s knowingly-titled ‘Not In This Lifetime… Tour’ began with a series of shows in the US in April before criss-crossing North America more fully between June and August.
The reunited line-up of Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan are now touring central and South America, and have already announced dates in Japan, Thailand, Australia, New Zealand and Dubai for next year.
Their last scheduled date is due to take place in March, but fans remain hopeful that a European leg and further North American dates will be announced shortly.
Earlier this month it was reported that the band are planning to begin the European leg of their tour with a huge show at Dublin’s 82,300-capacity Croke Park in July. According to the report, “It should be confirmed before Christmas.”
It has previously been reported that the band’s European dates will include a headline set at Download Festival in Donington Park, Leicestershire in June.
In September it was reported that the band’s reunion tour has already grossed £90 million, making it the highest-grossing tour of the year to date in North America. Their run of stadium shows were attended by over a million fans in the US and Canada.
However, Metallica’s Kirk Hammett has recently suggested the band have become “somewhat of a nostalgia act” with the reunion tour, something he branded “sad”.
