Axl Rose, lead singer of Guns N’ Roses, learned an expensive lesson about traveling with valuables after an unfortunate incident in Paris this week.
Details about Axl Rose’s missing jewelry- believed to involve three necklaces valued together at more than many Americans’ homes at $200,000- are a bit scant at the moment. Several news sources say that it does not appear Rose “was wearing the necklaces at the time of the theft,” which seems to be a very central-to-the-case detail to discern when determining the facts of the crime.
Axl Rose’s three gold-and-diamond necklaces traveled with him, and the band, to France’s capital to perform at Bercy stadium, and the reported theft of six-figures worth of jewelry is said to have occurred sometime after the show, during a private gathering.
The sketchy tale of necklace theft is only one of a few unpleasant happenings to be associated with Guns N’ Roses current tour in recent days. As NME.com says, fans in the UK reported some less-than-satisfactory happenings at concerts during the band’s UK tour leg. The music mag explains:
“Guns N’ Roses completed their troubled UK arena tour on Friday (June 1), ending their run of shows on a sour note after being pelted with money and pint glasses.”
