What’s an aging rock star to request for his Israeli hotel room? According to The Jerusalem Post, Axl Rose asked the Dan Tel Aviv hotel for an exercise bike, a piano, full sound- and light-proofing for the room — oh, and 40 suites to accommodate his 70-person entourage.
Guns N’ Roses will be performing for more than 60,000 people Saturday night, one of the largest concerts in Tel Aviv’s history. The band recently ruffled the feathers of Israeli Shabbat observers by moving up the concert’s start time to 8 p.m. — resulting in a few requests for refunds.
Axl Rose and company will probably be fine without the extra dollars, and if they’re not, they’ve got 70 people on hand who are probably ready and eager to dry their tears.
