Guns N' Roses were bottled by fans last night (September 1) at the Dublin O2 venue.

They left the stage as a result, after playing for just 20 minutes, but returned later to complete their show.

Axl Rose's band were over an hour late onstage for the performance, reports BBC Newsbeat. During 'Welcome To The Jungle', Rose stopped the song and addressed the crowd.

"If you don't want to have fun, all you've got to do is let us know," he said. "We've got no problem - we'll go on our way." Three songs later they left the stage.

A member of the venue staff then addressed the crowd, saying they were "trying hard" to get the frontman to agree to return to the stage. After a 35-minute break the band did return to complete their set, but by this time many fans had left the venue.
