Guns N' Roses lead singer Axl Rose was a victim of theft in Paris, according to the Associated Press. The three gold-and-diamond necklaces valued at $200,000 were stolen after the band played at Bercy stadium Tuesday.

Rose was visibly upset when attending a private event after the concert, a Paris police spokesperson told AP Wednesday.

Rose was not believed to be wearing the jewelry at the time of the robbery, the spokesperson added. Judicial police have launched an investigation.

Unfortunately, the theft wasn't the only problem the group faced during their UK dates. During their June 1 show at the O2 Arena they were interrupted by fans throwing money and pint glasses on stage, according to NME.

Bassist Tommy Stinson warned the rowdy crowd. "If you throw any f—king thing on stage, we'll go home," he said. Rose backed Stinson, saying his bandmate was "laying down the law."

At the show on May 31, concertgoers who arrived wearing T-shirts promoting former Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash were not allowed to enter the venue until they changed.

Guns N' Roses are next scheduled to play Warsteiner Hockeypark in Monchengladbach, Germany on June 8.
