One hit too many: Guns and Roses frontman Axl Rose announced on his Twitter account that he will stop throwing his microphone at the audience at the end of concerts, as he has been doing for 30 years, "for public safety."
This, after a woman named Rebecca Howe was hit in the face during the band's show in Adelaide, Australia.
"It has been brought to my attention that a female fan may have been hit at our show in Adelaide, Australia, possibly by the mic at the end of the show, when I traditionally throw it at the fans. If this is true, it goes without saying that we don't want anyone to be hurt or intentionally hurt during our show anywhere," Rose said. .
"We have been throwing away the microphone at the end of the show for more than 30 years, and we have always felt that it is a well-known part of the end of our show, that the fans want and are aware of, to have a chance to grab the microphone",
"In any case, in the name of public safety, from now on we will avoid throwing the microphone or Anything else towards the fans during our shows," he added, "Unfortunately there are those who for their own reasons have chosen to present their reports of this event in a more negative and irresponsible light, which could not be further from the truth. We hope you understand that this happens sometimes. Many thanks To everyone for understanding."
