Axl Rose has agreed to a clause in his contract with the Brazilian Rock In Rio festival this October that commits him to pay a fine if Guns n Roses come n stage late. The band played Rock In Rio in 2001 and 2006 and in 2001 arrived two hours late. The festival’s vice president Roberta Medina told Brazilian magazine Epoca: “[Guns N Roses’ appearance this year was] the hardest to arrange on the history of the festival. Bands are usually on time, but Guns is a different case. Lateness like the one in 2001 … can make the public feel uncomfortable and cause them to possibly start a riot”.
