Glastonbury viewers think Axl Rose sounds like 'dad at karaoke' during Guns N' Roses performance

People are comparing Guns N' Roses lead singer Axl Rose to their 'dad at karaoke' while watching his performance at Glastonbury.
Guns N’ Roses took this year's headline slot at the iconic festival, with the original line-up of Axl Rose, 61, Slash, 57, and Duff McKagan, 59 - who reunited in 2015 - taking to the stage on Saturday evening (24 June).
Without saying a word, the band started with 'Bad Obsession', as Rose and Slash strolled around the stage to rev up the crowd.
“How you doing?” Rose asked the audience after the song finished.
“We’d like to thank you for inviting us – thank you.”
However, midway through the set, it seems like Axl may have been having some mic issues, as during the performance, the singer told the crowd: "I cant walk out here that far because when I do I can only hear me and I cant hear the band. I'm not trying to wuss out they were."
A Guns N' Roses representative told LADbible: "Axl was in top form last night. We have dug deep into the matter, and it appears the broadcast had issues being played on certain TVs like the UHDs. This was an unfortunate issue that the mix played through these TVs sounding so poorly; however, it was not the band’s fault but the BBC’s."
Amid the audio issues, viewers at home thought Axl Rose sounded like their 'dad doing karaoke'.
"Axl Rose sounding a bit like when your dad fired up the home karaoke set in the garden during lockdown," one person tweeted.
"Your man Axl Rose sounding like some boy doing Guns n Roses on the karaoke," added a second.
"Axl Rose with a proper pub karaoke rendition of Slither," a third wrote.
"Slash still has it, Axl out here sounding like your dad after a few pints on karaoke," another said.
While someone else thought: "Axl rose really has the vibes of a drunk uncle doing karaoke."
Later on in the performance, the band gave a certain individual a shoutout as they launched into the well-known Bond hit, 'Live And Let Die'.
“We’re helping a certain individual celebrate the 50th anniversary of this song,” he said.
The song was written by Sir Paul McCartney, and released by Wings in 1973, as part of the soundtrack for the James Bond film of the same name.
Sir Paul has been pictured multiple times at the festival, watching performances including Foo Fighters, with his wife and daughter, Stella and Mary McCartney.
Well, earlier on in the evening, Lizzo's 'iconic' Glastonbury performance got people saying that she deserves to headline the festival.
Her performance included themes of diversity, inclusivity and body-positivity - and fans were absolutely loving it.
"Lizzo needs to headline a festival she’s so f**king good," one viewer tweeted.
Another added: "One thing is clear - Lizzo can easily headline the pyramid stage, bigger crowd than Arctic Monkeys."
Someone else said: "looool whoever said lizzo isnt headline quality, or size needs to get their [head] out of the clouds, that was phenomenal, with a huge crowd. thats how you do it."
