The US band Guns N’ Roses (since 1985) canceled the concert planned for Tuesday in Glasgow, Scotland. “Unfortunately, due to illness and medical advice, GN’R will be unable to perform in Glasgow tomorrow 5th July 2022. We are working on a new date for this show. Please keep your tickets and wait for another update. We thank you for your understanding and patience.” on the Instagram channel the musician around singer Axl Rose (60) and lead guitarist Slash (56).
Fans are disappointed
Many fans have expressed their disappointment at the renewed postponement of Guns N’ Roses’ Glasgow gig. Like the Glasgow Times reported they were “absolutely disappointed” that the gig would not go ahead after waiting two years to see the legendary rockers play in the city. The original date in 2020 had been postponed due to the Covid 19 pandemic.
Many had already traveled to Glasgow to see the band or could not have their accommodation and travel expenses reimbursed. “This is the third postponement – and a third hotel paid for and wasted,” a fan is quoted as saying. And another: “I’ve been looking forward to it since I got tickets as a birthday present in 2019.” A third resigned: “I’ll never see them live.”
Although he wasn’t named, most seem to assume that singer Axl Rose is affected. The Instagram post read: “I hope Axl recovers soon, his health is the most important thing right now. I’ll keep my fingers crossed for him and the whole band from here in Brazil. Axl is very popular and has our support and affection.”
Another follower is more specific: “Axl should rest his voice and take care of his mental state! Cutting the setlist down to two hours and playing the songs a bit slower and in lower registers will help Axl and the band! Take care, my idol!”
Munich concert is to take place
However, it is unclear what the postponement means for the next upcoming concert as part of their world tour. Because there is no further information yet. On the band’s website the appearance in the Munich Olympic Stadium for Friday (July 8th) is still scheduled as usual.
On Sunday (July 10th) the tour entourage would stop in Milan, Italy. Then Vienna and Hanover are on the agenda. In autumn we are going to South America, Mexico, Japan and Australia/New Zealand.
