An Adelaide woman has been left with blood all over her after a microphone thrown by Guns N’ Roses singer Axl Rose hit her in the face.
Rebecca Howe had two black eyes and a busted nose following the incident that took place at the Adelaide Oval on Tuesday night Adelaide Advertiser reports.
Rose threw his microphone into the crowd after the band’s last song, Take me to Paradise Cityhowever, it hit Ms. Howe, causing her nose to bleed.
“I was in Diamond Standing, so it wasn’t even at the front and it was the very last song, Take me to Paradise City‘ said Mrs Howe.
“He bowed and then pointed the mic at the crowd … and then he slammed right on the bridge of my nose.”
While the microphone was intercepted by another attendee, Ms Howe hyperventilated and was in “shock”.
“My thoughts were, ‘Oh my god, my face is sunken in,'” she said.
Although an off-duty police officer helped move her to the side of the crowd, Ms Howe says the incident could have been fatal.
“What if it was a few inches to the right or left? I could have lost an eye…what if it hit me in the mouth and I broke my teeth?” she said.
“If my head was turned and it hit me in the temple, it could have killed me.”
News.com.au has reached out to a Guns N’ Roses tour announcer for comment.
Earlier this week, Rose slammed an Australian fan at the Gold Coast concert for attempting to take drone footage that sent a drone flying in front of the stage.
“To the anonymous Mr. Drone-Flyer, you af-ing ct,” he said on stage.
He later shared an expanded statement on Twitter.
“Had some drones in that leg. Last night (Gold Coast Australia) was probably the most intrusive,” the statement said.
“Was a bit distracting because obviously someone thought it was okay to do that, but also that it came so close in front of the stage and then actually went across the stage.
“According to the police, this has been happening more frequently lately, especially at sporting events.”
Rose also asked people not to bring drones to future concerts.
“We think it can be (sic) ‘fun’ to get our drone bootleg video, but we’d appreciate it if someone who plans to become a drone pirate considers the fans and the band and elsewhere playing with his toys,” he wrote.
With the band’s current Australian and New Zealand tour concluding on December 10th, Guns N’ Roses have been announced to headline the BST Hyde Park concert in Adelaide.
