VIDEO: Axl Rose stops Monterrey concert after fans litter stage

It’s been a rough week for Axl Rose in Mexico.

On Tuesday, he slipped on stage in Mexico City at the first of four shows in the country, and Sunday night in Monterrey, Axl stopped the concert, entirely, about a minute after it began, when fans threw objects onto the stage.

In fan-shot video, it looks like a single drink hits center stage near Axl’s feet and spills liquid on the floor, which caught the singer’s attention just seconds into the show’s opening number, “Chinese Democracy.”

Rose shut the band down immediately, waving them off as the song came to a crashing halt. The singer then threatened that the group would pack up and leave.

"Is that what you wanna do?" asked Axl. "'Cause we will go home," he threatened.

Rose called an interpreter to the stage, and repeated his statement, followed by the translation for the crowd.

“Is that what you wanna do – throw s**t?” he said. “Cause we will go home. We would like to have fun. You wanna have a good time?"

Axl moved on, telling his bandmates, "Alright, let's just skip that song," before they kicked into the second track in the band’s standard setlist, “Welcome To The Jungle.”

GNR now return to the States to start their North American tour October 28 in Orlando.

Here’s two angles of the incident…
