Brazil, March 14: AN A-list crowd of Brazilian billionaires and supermodels rioted after waiting hours for Guns N' Roses to perform, and then learning Axl Rose and his band wouldn't play.

The exclusive concert - due to be held in a Sao Paulo club and hosted by Ana Beatriz Barros and fellow lingerie models - got out of hand about 3am Friday (local time), the New York Post reports.

"The audience got angry and started to mount the stage, and fight and destroy everything," a source told The Post.

"It was wild. There were fights everywhere, on the dance floor, in the bathrooms, outside the club. Crazy. I guess the free drinks didn't help."

Guns N' Roses were to play three private show in South America at venues designed to hold about 150 people.

Organizer Jamison Ernest had refused to reveal further details, for fear that too much information being released would lead to riots by unwanted guests, but he did say the first was to be held in San Paulo on Thursday.

Rose is the only remaining member left from the band when its popularity peaked during a decade spanning the 1980s and 1990s.

The other members were either ousted or quit. Even though its 2008 album Chinese Democracy, its first release in 17 years, was a major flop, the band remains a strong concert draw.
