Guns N’ Roses dump support band

After Axl Rose criticises them onstage

Guns N’ Roses have dumped support band Eagles Of Death Metal from their tour.

The band were let go after the reception they received from the audience at Cleveland’s Quicken Loans Arena on the first night of a tour that was meant to last for three weeks.

The Eagles Of Death Metal took the stage and, according to John Soeder writer for the Cleveland Plain Dealer, the band were met with : “not deafening boos, but lots of grumbling and grousing and…indifference”.

According to MTV, at the start of Guns N’ Roses slot, Rose came out on stage and said :”So how’d you like the Pigeons Of Shit Metal? Don’t worry, that’s the last show they’re playing with us.”

In a statement released on Monday (November 27), the Eagles Of Death Metal said: “At first the audience refused to welcome us to the jungle, but by the time we took our final bow, it had become paradise city. Although Axl tried to November rain on our parade, no sweet child o’ mine can derail the EODM night train. We say live and let die.”
