As previously reported, last night's (Friday, April 9) GUNS N' ROSES concert at Estadio Ricardo Saprissa in San Jose, Costa Rica was cancelled because part of the stage apparently collapsed from the weight of the screen which the band has been using as part of its live performances.

Outside the stadium, fans of GUNS N' ROSES had been lining up to obtain refunds for tickets which cost between ¢ 16,000 (approximately $29) and ¢ 63,000 ($113).

A four-minute video report on the GUNS N' ROSES concert cancellation from the Costa Rican news channel NR6 can be viewed below.
