Legend Axl Rose hit out at fans after a drone was flown around at his concert.
Yep, picture this, you pay a small fortune to see Guns N' Roses on the Gold Coast, only for a drone flyer to interrupt things.
Not exactly our idea of the perfect night out, and Rose was quick to hit back at the perpetrator.
During his concert set in Australia on 24 November, Rose said in between songs: "To the anonymous Mr Drone flyer, you're a f***ing c**t," as reported by the Daily Mail.
And we'd argue that was a pretty clear message, but Rose later followed things up on Twitter, blasting the 'intrusive' behaviour: "Had a few drones this leg. Last night (Gold Coast Australia) was probably the most intrusive. Was a bit of a distraction obviously someone thought it was just ok to be doing that but also it coming that close in front of the stage and then actually over n' on stage."
And to be fair he does have a point, we couldn't imagine how hard it is to perform 'Sweet Child O' Mine' as someone's unruly kid flies their Christmas toy onto your stage.
Rose continued to say: "According to the police it happens more often than not lately especially with sporting events. It's not something we're all that used to. A lot of impulse reactions went thru everyone's minds that after thinking about it (which when ur live there's really no time to really sort things out like that) didn't make much sense.
"People were p**sed. However much fun anyone's having ur still trying to stay focused n' do ur job n' give the fans the best show u can."
He finished by saying to have 'consideration' for the 'fans n' the band' and to 'play with your toys somewhere else'.
Still, the band does have a whole new generation of fans after appearing in the Thor: Love and Thunder soundtrack, so maybe they might come around to the drones?
There were four of the band's songs on the soundtrack, as director Taika Waititi explained to the NME: “We actually wanted five but that might have been overkill. It was a real triumph, having one of my favourite bands from when I was a kid, the band that really informed the soundtrack to my life.
“Still at 46, usually at about 3 am when I’m in bed, I’ll watch Guns N’ Roses music videos. I don’t go on one of those porn sites, I go and watch Axl Rose in the Paradise City music video!”
