AXL ROSE Says Potential ‘Food Poisoning’ Affected His Performance At GUNS N’ ROSES’ Chicago Concert

Axl Rose cites potential food poisoning as reason for struggles at Chicago Guns N' Roses concert.

It appears Axl Rose may have caught a touch of possible food poisoning prior to the GUNS N’ ROSES concert in Chicago Thursday night (September 16).

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Axl “struggled often during” the show at Wrigley Field “to tether himself to a comfortable vocal range, especially straining to hit notes in his top register for the arena showdowns like ‘You Could Be Mine’ and ‘Sweet Child O Mine’.”

Yesterday, Axl posted a message to the GUNS N’ ROSES Twitter account,saying: “A note to Chicago… I got to the show feeling great, but started getting sick pretty early on. It progressed to where I was throwing up & was light headed. Wouldn’t have been surprised if I’d fallen off the front of the stage. I’d b fine then not, fine again then not all night. Was pretty crazy but the crowd was great n’ I was in a great headspace n’ we had fun. Luckily the COVID test was negative. Def messed with my vocals in places. Just glad we got thru it n’ it didn’t mess with the show too bad. I’m a lot better now. Seems most likely to be food poisoning.

“Looking forward to Milwaukee!”

The current GUNS N’ ROSES tour will wrap up with two shows in Hollywood, Florida, at the Hard Rock Live Arena on October 2 and 3, 2021.
