America’s normally polite neighbors to the north were as mad as hell last night. Guns N’ Roses fans at GM Place in Vancouver, British Columbia began rioting after discovering that the opening date of the band’s first North American tour in over nine years had been canceled. G n’ R’s official spokeswoman stated that the show was cancelled due to technical difficulties with frontman Axl Rose’s airplane that delayed his flight. Angered by the news, a handful of angry fans rammed steel barricades through the box office windows and doors of the venue and shot bottle rockets and threw rocks at police who were on the scene. The officers responded with blasts of pepper spray and used their riot batons to subdue the crowd and arrested twelve people.
