Guns N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose attended U2’s show at the Rose Bowl on Sunday, where the band honored Chris Cornell by playing “Black Hole Sun” on the house speakers as the nearly 100,000 people in attendance lit their phones to pay tribute.
Rose was one of those in attendance, and he took out time to take a photograph with fans. Rose was also spotted singing along loudly to “One.” Former Audioslave and Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello also attended the concert with his mother.
Morello wrote, “I’ve always been #Bono’s second favorite Morello. At 93 years old my mom went to her grandson’s little league game at 8am, a 3 hour Rites Of Passage school function, discussed African politics with her old friend Bono and then rocked out to the Joshua Tree. #goals #MaryMorello @u2”
Guns N’ Roses are set to make a major announce later today about a Los Angeles homecoming show. The band will kick off a European tour in a couple days, and they’re taking extra safety precautions after the terrorist attack in Manchester on Monday.
The Irish Sun is reporting that Saturday’s concert at Slane Castle will see more than 400 police and 1,200 security team members patrolling the area.
“An Garda Siochana [Ireland’s police force] will have over 400 members on duty, including specialist units, who will be supported by an additional 1,200 security/stewards provided by licensed security companies together with a full complement of doctors and medical teams, including an on-site hospital along with five first aid posts,” a police spokesman said. “The Event Control Management Team overseeing this event have over 25 years experience within their fields of expertise. Please co-operate fully with gardai and stewards and follow any loudspeaker announcements as this will help ensure the safety and enjoyment for all concerned.”
