Slash Gear Banned from Guns N' Roses Concert

1/24/2010 9:16 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

SlashGuns N' Roses fans were forced to take sides in the legendary war between Axl Rose and Slash -- after security at a recent GNR show banned fans from wearing Slash gear inside the show.

It all went down at the GNR show in Canada last Wednesday -- concert security informed fans that they were required to turn their Slash t-shirts inside out .... and leave their top hats outside.

TMZ spoke with a member of the concert security team who confirmed the marching orders -- and told us the instructions were passed down from a producer for the band.

We're told a few fans took the high road and went home ... but most just sucked it up and did what they were told.

According to the fan site from which this story was originally reported, it turned out to be just a hoax. Someone called the arena and recorded their conversations with the employees and then uploaded them on youtube.

NOTE TO AXL: Dude, you werent the only one in the band. You would never had made it without the other members of the band. You still woulldn't be selling a ton of records without the other members of the band and guess what- some of the fans LIKE the other members of the band.

Treat your fans with the respect you think YOU deserve and then double it. Figging insecure crybaby.

In the big scheme of things, the band was really like OK 20 years ago for a couple albums, but the lead singer is an inbred, so I don't understand why they get any attention at all????? I'm confused, really, 2 Hit Wonder comes to mind.

I agree with #9. Axl is being childish and vindictive. The old band had the magic.
