1991 St. Louis Riot – 25 Most Destructive Guns N’ Roses Moments

Axl Rose MugshotIn possibly the most infamous Guns N’ Roses onstage incident, a riot broke out in St. Louis, Missouri after an altercation between Axl Rose and a cameraman in 1991.

While performing the song ‘Rocket Queen,’ Rose spotted a fan taking pictures and began to order security to confiscate the camera. Security not acting quickly enough for Rose’s standards, the frontman dove into the crowd and began to throw punches. After being pulled out of the audience, Rose slammed down his mic and left the stage. The rest of the band followed, leading to a full-scale riot which left dozens of fans injured. Rose was arrested a year later for inciting a riot, but the charges were eventually dropped.
