This week Axl Rose tried to throw a wrench into the plans of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame to induct him and the classic lineup of Guns N' Roses when he released a statement requesting that he not be inducted into the Rock Hall, saying: "Please know that no one is authorized nor may anyone be permitted to accept any induction for me or speak on my behalf."

The problem, of course, is that the Rose and Slash, Steven Adler, Duff McKagan, and Izzy Stradlin have been feuding for nearly 20 years. The hope was that Rose would get over all that for a few hours, but instead he rejected induction entirely. The Hall, however, maintains that it will still induct him this weekend.

Guns N' Roses tour attracts Florida and Texas residents

Guns N' Roses

Guns N' Roses is going on tour! It's a tour that lacks Slash and the rest of the classic lineup, but that hasn't deterred fans from getting tickets. So far, the group is most popular in Florida and Texas. Over 42% of all orders for the tour are for the shows in those two states. While there are two dates in each state, compared to just one show in other locations, the number of orders for each show is still higher than anywhere else.


So what about attendance? Which state can stake a claim as holding the most Guns N' Rose fans? Unsurprisingly, most attendees are residents of the states that are doing the best in orders. For example, over 18% of tour attendees are from Florida and 17% are from Texas, and those are the two states that have the most orders.
