Axl Rose, the Guns N' Roses frontman, has reportedly been robbed of $200,000 in jewelry after a concert in Paris, France.

The Associated Press cited a police spokesman as saying Wednesday that the theft of three gold-and-diamond necklaces occurred during a private party after the group performed at Bercy stadium.

Guns N' Roses were scheduled to play in Moenchengladbach, Germany, Friday as part of a tour of Europe and Israel.

NME described the group's previous tour of the UK and Ireland as "troubled." They were reportedly pelted with money and pint glasses at a gig in London last Friday.

Bassist Tommy Stinson had reportedly warned the crowd at the O2 Arena that: "If you throw any fucking thing on stage, we'll go home."

Rose reportedly took regular breaks in an oxygen tent during the gig, and the band members have also been criticized for their late starts.  

However, that didn't stop the Sabotage Times rewarding them with a glowing review after a gig in Birmingham, which reads that: "Despite the endless years of fucking about, the jettisoning of the iconic original line-up and the history of royally pissing off his fans, the prospect of Axl Rose prowling the stage can still generate genuine excitement."
