Excerpt from an article about the 1991 show in Alabama:
Matt Wake wrote:[..]
Guns N' Roses would actually play Birmingham again on the grueling 18-month "Use Your Illusion" tour, which included almost 200 total concerts and traveled to more than 25 countries. But the band wasn't the same for that latter show, held Feb. 25, 1993 at the Birmingham Jefferson Civic Center Arena. Stradlin had left the group by that time and the band's dangerous side had swollen into caricature. GNR went onstage annoying late. Rose stormed off after blowing out his voice, reportedly because his monitor tech forgot to turn the stage monitors on, so bassist Duff McKagan sang a couple of tunes and Slash apologized to the crowd. Hall was also at that 1993 BJCC show, and says, "I wasn't one of them, but they lost a lot of fans that night."[..]

From a preview for the show in Saskatoon. Star Phoenix, March 25, 1993:
Only in Birmingham, Ala., the second show of the tour, were there problems that caused Rose to storm off stage.

“Axl was on stage for 20 minutes and he got mad at their sound man, fired him and left the stage for 40 minutes while the band continued playing,” said the Jefferson Civic Centre's assistant security director, Maureen Reagan. Prior to Gun N’ Roses taking the stage, there was a 45-minute break between the headliner and the opening act.

"There was too long a break between acts and some kids instigated things,” she said without being specific. However, during the break a spotlight played over the crowd and some female fans lifted their shirts.

Unlike other venues surveyed, the 15,000-seat Jefferson Civic Centre was not sold out, a fact Reagan attributed to the popularity of country music in the area.

Reagan said 40 officers were brought into the building to handle security for the event.
