Perth Fan To Sue Axl Rose After Teeth Knocked Out By Microphone

Written by Kiel Egging on March 14, 2013

A fan who was hit in the mouth by Axl Rose‘s microphone at a recent Guns N’ Roses gig in Perth on the weekend is preparing to sue the singer. Darren Wright, 39, told the West Australian he was enjoying the finale of the show when he was suddenly hit in the mouth by a cordless mic.

“With the bright lights and explosions, I couldn’t see anything,” he said. “The next thing I knew, I was whacked in the mouth. I thought I had been punched. I was quite stunned and it took a few seconds to realise what was going on… I could feel bits of teeth in my mouth. Then someone is climbing through my legs to grab the microphone.”

Mr Wright said the flying microphone damaged his two front teeth and left his mouth bleeding. He’s received a $5,000 quote from a local dentist to fix the damage, and was also left with a cut lip and an exposed nerve from the incident.

The West Australian also reports promoter Andrew McManus left a message on Mr Wright’s mobile apologising for the incident and offering to give him a microphone signed by Rose. However, Mr Wright is not planning on settling for the offer.

“In reality, I don’t think the microphone is going to fix my teeth or pay for the dentist,” he said. “I’m a father of 4 on a single income doing it hard in Perth. At the very least, I want someone to pay to get my teeth fixed.”

Axl hasn’t had much luck in court recently, so no doubt he’s hoping the pair can come to a reasonably painless settlement. Guns N’ Roses Australian Tour hits Melbourne this weekend before finishing up in Brisbane on Wednesday.
