Guns N’ Roses Former Manager Turned Down The Rolling Stones Tour

In a new interview with podcaster Mitch Lafon, Guns N’ Roses former manager Alan Niven discussed why he turned down the opportunity for the band to open for The Rolling Stones revealing.

story continued below…

“Guns N’ Roses were offered the entire  ‘Steel Wheels’ tour (1989), but for reasons that you can research – I felt that that would be a disaster and passed on it, but we did end up getting an offer from Mr. Jagger to open in LA at two shows at the Coliseum.

“We ended up selling four shows at the Coliseum and doing that and getting paid a very handsome salary. The best part of it all was how Axl [Rose] arrived for the first show. Because he locked himself in his apartment, and we were half an hour from stage time, and he still hadn’t shown up at the gig.

“I talked to Michael, the production manager for The Rolling Stones – he was a really cool and level-headed guy, as you’d expect around that class of band – I said, ‘Do you have a friend in the LAPD who will do something without asking questions?’

“He said, ‘Yes, and I don’t know what you want to ask him, so I’m going to leave the room.’ And this guy came in, and I gave him specific instructions.

“I told him where Axl is, gave him the address, and I said, ‘You send two uniforms right there in a black and white right now, and if they have to kick the door down and put him in handcuffs…’

“That’s what they did. They put him in back in black and white, and they brought him as fast as possible, right now. And that’s how Axl arrived to the first show opening for The Rolling Stones: in the back of a police car under the threat of handcuffs.”

Initially, The Stones offered Guns N’ Roses $50,000 per show, but the band’s management countered with $250,000 per show making the band a cool million for the four nights. The performance would end in disaster after frontman Axl Rose made his problems with the band public during the first night.
