The revelry was just too much for some people.
GUNS N' ROSES fans in New Jersey had one heck of a party at the MetLife Stadium show on Saturday night (July 23rd 2016). In fact, at least 30 of them left the venue in handcuffs following a variety of arrests from solicitation to drug possession.
Guns N' Roses fans arrested in New Jersey
The Guns N' Roses 'Not In This Lifetime' tour is probably one of the most exciting band reunions ever, so it's no wonder people are letting the fun go to their heads. As Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan return to arenas, 30 people are forced to spend some time at the police station.
According to New Jersey state police, the most arrests were for disorderly conduct (that's nine people) and solicitation (that's eleven), which could mean anything; most likely people trying to purchase tickets and/or other merch illegally.
Other offences included 'open lewdness', resisting arrest, harassment, possession of less than 50 grams of marijuana, criminal trespassing and simple assault. Plus, one woman even got charged for aggravated assault on a police officer.

Despite the crime rates, however, the 'Paradise City' hitmakers returned to the MetLife Stadium the following Sunday (July 24th 2016).
The original members of Guns N' Roses performed their first show together in 20 years - having broken up in 1996 - in April at West Hollywood's Troubadour, followed by a headline set at Coachella Music And Arts Festival that same month. They are currently spending the summer touring North America in some of the nation's biggest arenas with a range of supporting bands including Wolfmother, The Cult and Skrillex. Lenny Kravitz was opening for them this weekend.
The band will rap the North American leg of their tour at San Diego's Qualcomm Stadium on August 22nd, before hitting the road in South America for shows in Peru, Chile, Argentina, Brazil, Colombia and Costa Rica this fall.
