Tour cancelled? - FALSE

Post by Soulmonster on Sun Aug 15, 2010 8:25 pm

This was tweeted:

axlrose: All upcoming Guns N' Roses dates are officially cancelled. Please contact your place of purchase for any refunds. about 8 hours ago via mobile web

Then this followed:

gunsnroses: We are looking into this tweet http://fb.me/DHkuVmdU from the @AxlRose twitter account. Please RT + keep with us here for official word. TY about 6 hours ago via web Retweeted by you and 100+ others

Then this guy (who is he?) wrote:

gunsoftruth: Hey guys - Axl's account was hacked. The upcoming shows are still going ahead. We'll have confirmation as soon as Twitter resets his pwd. about 4 hours ago via web


So either some hacked Axl's twitter account or the tour is really cancelled.

Bumblefoot has mailed:
Give it 48 hours, hopefully whatever it is will get resolved. (No one quit the band or anything like that...)

But rumours are saying that the tour really has been cancelled.

Rumor has it that "Walker Alford" is the guy that hacked Axl's tweeter account:

"Guns N' Roses have not cancelled their UK live shows and Reading and Leeds festival gigs, despite earlier reports.

A spokesperson for the dual site festival said the group’s management had told them that Axl Rose’s Twitter had been hacked and that the information was false.

A message late on Sunday night read: “All upcoming Guns N' Roses dates are officially cancelled. Please contact your place of purchase for any refunds.”

G’n’R are scheduled to hit the Reading main stage on Friday August 27 and Leeds on Sunday 29 August.

They have also got UK arena dates arranged for October in Birmingham, London and Manchester."

From Bumblefoot:

All is fine, hang tight, don't get tangled up in the drama & rumors, k? Smile about 1 hour ago reply

OK, now someone's stirring up shit by spreading a personal email I wrote. I'll sum it up: don't leave a crowd waiting in the cold for 2 hours with no info, tell them something, give them something. Shit happens, 'late' happens, I've been late before, not pointing fingers, this is about taking care of the *audience*. When an audience is at a point of hate, trying to hurt us, the crew, the gear, something isn't right. I'm hoping next time, I/we/someone will let the crowd know wussup and to hang tight.

bumblefoot Please understand, shit happens - I just felt the crowd somehow got neglected during the wait and it pissed me the fuck off, that's all. 16 minutes ago reply

Our of respect for Bumblefoot I will not post the content of the E-mail he referred to above, but it is obvious that he is finding it hard to accept GNR's lack of professionalism when it comes to delivering on schedule and treating the fans with respect.

But hopefully this has nothing to do with the axlrose tweet.

The cancellation tweet is still up and no official statement on Facebook or twitter denying the cancellation. Seems like the "management" are doing damage control and trying to convince Axl change his mind (yeah, I don't believe the "hacker" explanation one bit...). The remaining band seems to be in the loop, as well. Hopefully Axl will come forward and either deny or confirm the cancellation, soon.

Hard to say what caused him to cancel the tour, but it is obvious that band members (as well as his fan base) are getting fed up with his lack of professionalism and this may have caused a conflict that again made him lash of destructively, this time by cancelling the tour.

Well, at least it is still exciting times to be a GN'R fan Wink Doh!

Tommy commented on the cancellation tweet recently on Cleveland, Ohio's classic rock radio station 98.5 WNCX:

"It's startling to me how stuff happens. It's stressful. It's like you kinda think, 'OK, well, I've gotta get my life in order here 'cause I'm leaving in five days,' and then you hear something like that coming down the pike.

"It's, like, Sunday night and you're like, 'How am I supposed to deal with that?' Everyone's just trying to figure out what's happening with it and how it happened and then I get the call that everything's fine, whatever - it's just some crazy shit going on."


I can confirm that other band members also were not informed about the tweet and what was going on, but they all seem to assemble in London these days. Hopefully Axl will show up, too.

Hi honey, what a day at the office! Had the plug pulled on us, power shut off - I grabbed an acoustic, Deej turned his amp up, Ax grabbed a megaphone, told him I'd grab 10 random people from the audience and bring 'em on stage for a personal acoustic show, but shit was winding down, local security wasn't lookin' to help, had a bit of a Paradise City sing-along but finally we had to just bid farewell... (Leeds: Axl/management will let ya know if there's gonna be any definite change of plans...) This is the kinda crazy shit I need, I feel fukkin good - party hoppin with my bandmates for the last 6 hours. Love you!!

So Bumbles is warming to the craziness? Good for him Very Happy

Nobody will ever realize the amount of bullshit that Axl gets thrown at him on a daily basis. If you only knew the half of it, you would understand. Trust me I don't know anyone out there that could deal with what he has to, to keep a monster like Guns N' Roses rolling and still get on stage and perform like he does. My hat goes off to him. I have nothing but respect for Axl, and always have, even before I joined the band. He is one of the few living legends of our time. He is the real deal, like it or not, he stands for what he believes and wears his heart on his sleeve. He is all about his fans, we all are....thats why we give 200% every concert we do. We love you guys more than life, and we could never thank you enough for all the love and support. See you all soon, until then Im going to sit back, buckle up and enjoy the most dangerous, reckless roller coaster ride of my life!
