Cleveland Show Proves Fateful for GNR Opener


One show into their scheduled 15-city tour with Guns N' Roses, the Eagles of Death Metal have been banished from Axl Rose's camp. The band, which features Queens of the Stone Age mastermind Josh Homme, was berated by fans at its Quicken Loans Arena show last week. When Rose finally took the stage later, he too derided EODM, calling them "the pigeons of shit metal" and declaring they were finished as GNR's opening act. He wasn't kidding. "Unfortunately, as quickly as it began -- it ended," reads an announcement at EODM's website. The news comes as belated comfort to GNR fans, who had assumed Rose would do something fabulously asinine during the show but went home oddly disappointed. -- Erich Burnett
