Guns N’ Roses front man to stop trademark mic throw after fan hit in the face

Guns N’Roses frontman Axl Rose said that he would no longer throw his microphone in the crowd at concerts’ end after a woman was hit, leaving her bleeding and bruised.

After the Adelaide incident, Australia, rock star the Rock Star said that he would not perform his signature final act “in order to protect the public safety”.

After the band’s last song, Take Me down To Paradise City, Rebecca Howe was struck on the bridge by the microphone.

While the video doesn’t capture the moment Ms. Howe was hit by the car, it shows the excitement of fans who rush to grab the memento.

Rose wrote on social media: Rose stated that she was aware of a fan who may have been injured at our Adelaide show. This could be due to being struck by the microphone at the show’s end, when I normally hand the mic to the fans.

“If true, we don’t want anyone to get hurt or in any way, in anyway, at any of our shows anywhere.

“Having tossed the microphone at the end our show for more than 30 years, we felt it was an integral part of our performance that fans desired and appreciated, so they had the opportunity to grab the mic.

“Nevertheless, we will not, from now on, toss the mic or give anything to fans during or at our performances in the interests of public safety.”

He said, “Unfortunately, there are some people who for their own reasons choose to frame their reporting on this subject in a negative n’ irresponsible light that could not be further from the truth. We hope that the public and fans understand this sometimes.

“A big thank you to everyone for your understanding.”

Ms. Howe suffered two black eyelids and nose cuts.

“My mind was flooded with the thought, “Oh my God, my face has caved in.”

“I felt blood running down my front.

She said, “What if it was just a few inches to the left or right? It could have caused me to lose an eye. What if it struck me in the mouth, and I fractured my teeth?

“If my head was turned, and it hit me in temple, it could’ve killed me.”

Ms. Howe was also shocked at the behavior of other fans, despite her injury.

She was sad: “There was a huge kerfuffle when this man tried to grab the microphone… He held it up as if it was a victory, ‘I had it, I got’, while i was trying to keep myself calm.”
