Report: GUNS N' ROSES Sold Only 3,000 Tickets For Portland Concert Before Cancellation

According to Maine's WGME-TV, GUNS N' ROSES only sold 3,000 out of a possible 6,500 tickets for last night's concert at the Cumberland County Civic Center in Portland before the show was called off by the group. GUNS N' ROSES' management issued a statement blaming the cancellation on the "limitations imposed by local fire marshals." A GN'R spokesperson explained that the conditions "made it impossible for the band to perform their show to the usual high standards that their fans deserve."
