2002 Philadelphia Riot – 25 Most Destructive Guns N’ Roses Moments
Not even a month after Guns N' Roses' 2002 tour started with a riot-starting cancelled show in Vancouver, a second nixed performance again sent fans into a violent frenzy, and ultimately caused the whole trek to be called off.
According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, after a 90-minute wait following the end of the opening act's set, an announcement was made that the show was cancelled due to 'Health Issues.' The crowd threw beers, chanted 'Axl Sucks,' and ripped the seats off some chairs. No arrests were made, but soon after the tour's promoter, Clear Channel, cancelled the rest of the dates.
