PARIS (AP) — Police say Guns N' Roses front man Axl Rose was
robbed of three gold-and-diamond necklaces worth some $200,000 after
the hard rock band's concert in Paris.
A Paris police spokesman said Wednesday that the lead
singer of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame-inducted band was fuming after
the theft during a private gathering after the band's show at Bercy
stadium the previous night.
Judicial police have opened an investigation but the
spokesman said it didn't appear Rose was wearing the necklaces at the
time. The spokesman spoke on condition of anonymity because of office
The group's website says they are scheduled to play in
Moenchengladbach, Germany, on Friday before returning to France as part
of a tour of Europe and Israel that runs through July 22.
