Axl Rose Storms Off Stage after Flying Bottle Incident

9/2/2010 1:58 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Axl Rose shut down a live concert in Ireland last night to yell at the crowd after multiple people fired bottles onto the stage during their performance ... and it was all caught on tape.

Rose -- who literally called for his band to stop playing their instruments during their first song "Welcome to the Jungle" -- warned the crowd that he would pack up his stuff and leave if they kept up the shenanigans.

Of course, the crowd started to boo ... and Rose eventually walked off stage.

We're told the crowd was pissed because the band started their show more than 90 minutes behind schedule.

Eventually -- after several concert officials apologized to crowd -- Rose and company came back on the stage and finished the show.

Some of these responses are nonsense. What does being washed up/has been have to do with whether or not it's acceptable for audience members to throw bottles on the stage while ANY performer is trying to do their show? Even if they were late?

GnR should get their s**t together and not keep an audience waiting, very true. Audience has every right to be upset about that. But that doesn't justify throwing bottles. And Axl handled it very well.

He had one good song, "Sweet child o' mine" 30 years ago. Haven't heard from him since. I thought he was dead.

Just shows that Justin Bieber has more cojones than these hard rockers... he got hit by a bottle, said "Ouch, not cool", and continued without missing a beat.

(Morons who throw anything at artists should do 30 days.)

I would have left, why should he stand there and be hit by bottles?

You could give me a free ticket to a GNR show, and I still would not attend. Ax-Hole's Diva attitude is a turn off as it is. The worst is that 20 year history of not going on stage on time - hey, isn't it in your contract?

Since bands have certain demands, and if they are not met, the venue has to pay....how about this: For every minute Axl is late getting on stage, $10K comes off their check....

GNR is one of the most washed up bands with an egotistical lead singer! Slash was smart to leave!

I'm sick of this jerk. I saw him a long time ago when Guns n Roses was still together. He acted like a 2yr old and walked off the stage. He's an A$$. I would never go see him again not even for free. He's an egotistical jerk!

Axl is extremely famous for doing this (starting the show late & stoping the show if people throw stuff onstage/ or if someone has a Slash sign) that's the reason Slash and the band broke up...but on his defense i would not wanna be in the dark stage and have glass bottles full of beer being throw at me, that's extremely dangerous. I don't understand, if u r paying money to go see a band that u like, why would u throw stuff onstage (unless that was Slash) ha ha
