AXL ROSE Issues Update On GUNS N' ROSES' Rio Concert

March 15, 2010

The March 14 GUNS N' ROSES show in Rio De Janeiro at Apoteose Stadium was canceled after the stage collapsed due to heavy rains. Although there were originally radio reports of a fatality, this has now turned out to be false, according to the latest tweet from the band's frontman, Axl Rose. He adds, "Initial reports are that our staging is for the most part OK but a more accurate assessment is being made. No word yet on if the show will be moved to tomorrow the 15th or another night. Reportedly [opening act Sebastian Bach's] truck driver is OK as well."

GUNS N' ROSES began its 11-date South American tour on March 7 in Brazil, with dates scheduled through April 1 in countries like Ecuador, Uruguay, Chile, Peru, Venezuela and Colombia.

GUNS N' ROSES has recently played secret gigs in New York and London. The band's last South American appearance was in 2001.
