Axl Rose said the crowds have been so loud at recent Guns N' Roses concerts he can't hear himself onstage.

The singer and only remaining original member of the rock group said the band's current tour of South America has been hugely successful, with the crowds some of the loudest he has ever known.

As he headed to Lima in Peru, he wrote on twitlonger.com: "The crowds everywhere on this tour r unique un2 themselves. Don't get much rowdier or energetic than here!

"So many of these shows we have trouble with our sound on stage to b able to hear 'cuz the audience is singing along so loud which is amazing!! (sic)"

Axl also wrote about how he feels he can relate with the crowds in South America, and how appreciative he is that fans have always stood by the band.

"It's also nice to visit places that aren't as jaded n' influenced by peer pressure or media nonsense. They know what they like n' stand up 4 it rather than b told what they should n' shouldn't b in2 (sic)."

"I grew up with the preppies n' jocks where Bowie, Cooper, Zeppelin etc were considered garbage n' when The Cars, The Police, The Clash, The Ramones, The Sex Pistols etc were 'gay', whatever.

"South American fans have always been so good to us, I'm happy we were able to find a way to play for those we've been fortunate enough to have seen so far!! (sic)"

Guns N' Roses South American tour has taken in Brazil, Uruguay, Argentina, Chile and concludes with dates in Colombia tomorrow (30.03.10) and Ecuador on April 1.
