Stu Bykofsky of the Philadelphia Daily News reports that following the cancellation of the Guns N’ Roses concert on December 6th, mob mentality took over as hooligan fans vented their anger on the arena and the First Union Center staff, instead of on their absent hero, Axl Rose. Several female ushers were threatened with rape by some GNR goon fans. Word quickly spread among Center staffers to hustle women workers to the Victors Club, which stationed guards at each entrance. More than half the women got there, though some female supervisors stood their ground and refused the protection. Philly.com has since removed the article.
