Axl Rose Slapped With Manager Lawsuit
March 26, 2010

Axl Rose is being sued by his former management company, who claims that the Guns N' Roses frontman owes $1.87 million in unpaid commissions. Front Line Management, the company founded by famed manager and Ticketmaster CEO Irving Azoff, filed the suit against Rose in L.A. Superior Court on Thursday, claiming breach of contract, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Front Line says it was hired to be Rose's personal manager in 2008 and had an oral agreement to receive 15 percent of Guns N' Roses' profits. Rose then embarked on a tour in support of Chinese Democracy that brought in more than $12,470,000 from stops in Asia and South America, says the suit, but those commissions were never paid.

Rose has so far remained silent on the lawsuit, but he has posted updates about his South American tour on Twitter.
"Headed 4 Lima! Was great gettin' back 2 Buenos Aires," he wrote in a recent post. "The crowds everywhere on this tour r unique un2 themselves. Don't get much rowdier or energetic than here n' as w/ Belo Horizonte n' Santiago etc. very humbling. Sure there's excited idiots who throw shit or whatever but 4 the most part the fans r so enthusiastic, positive n' we mean so much 2 them it sets u bk n' makes u work hard to feel u can earn a small part of the respect they show u. So many of these shows we have trouble w/r sound on stage to b able to hear 'cuz the audience is singing along so loud which is amazing!! It's also nice to visit places that aren't as jaded n' influenced by peer pressure or media nonsense. They know what they like n' stand up 4 it rather than b told what they should n' shouldn't b in2."

The band will also play shows in Central America and Puerto Rico before wrapping up the trek. Currently, the only other shows on the GN'R itinerary are appearances at summer festivals in Finland and Sweden.
