Axl Rose has long been known to show up late for Guns 'N Roses concerts, sometimes keeping fans waiting hours and hours for 'his highness' to show up.

He says there have always been reasons for this associated with show prep, getting his voice together, etc, etc. Yeah, okay Axl. Whatever.

A Tampa DJ known as "Big Rig" recently told Alternative Nation the real reason Axl was late for a Tampa show. At the time, he was the venue owner's assistant and:

needless to say the owner was getting pissed. When the owner asked why Axl was being late for the thousandth time, he said: “Axl’s management said he was watching Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze, and that Axl’s attention was 100% on the movie and couldn’t be bothered.”

I'm sure all the other reasons for Axl's tardiness are just as valid.
