Guns N' Roses to play India in December? - TRUE

Post by Soulmonster on Tue Jun 26, 2012 12:53 am

Post from member Ketan at mygnroforum:

According to Delhi Times,

GUNS N ROSES,the American hard rock band,is going to perform in Delhi in December.They will be in India for a three-city tour.According to the manager of the band,Rob Macsween,The band will arrive on December 4,and will first perform in Bangalore on December 7,followed by two shows on December 9 and 12 in Mumbai and Delhi respectively.

imagine my disappointment when i did not find any mention of it on the official website or on mygnrforum. :confused: :confused:
of course something similar had happened before in 2009 when apparently they were scheduled to play but it turned out to be a rumor

i dont know what to expect. Fortus had replied to an email saying that Axl was planing something for India after the end of summer... so i am hopeful but this doesn’t look reliable.

also is Rob Macsween still their tour-manager?

oh well.

According to many credible sources including Wild City and Gibson Guitar India, rock juggernauts Guns N’ Roses (GN’R) will tour India this December. The legendary rock band has had a colourful history with huge hits such as ‘Sweet Child o’ Mine‘, ‘Paradise City‘ and ‘November Rain‘ entertaining fans around the world from the mid ’80s to the early ’90s. Along the way, there have been controversial changes in personnel and lots of infighting before the current avatar of the band was consolidated under lead singer Axl Rose.

The tour is being organized by the organizers of the Korn India tour, Mooz Entertainment and their Vice-President Dilip Ramachandaran released this statement about the G N’R tour

We are the first company to bring three-city tours with a defined calendar of events year after year starting this September. It is no secret that our next big act is humongous indeed. Our Korn concerts will be followed by a three-city tour of the iconic band Guns N’ Roses in December 2012.

Now, we don’t mean to be cynical but we’ve heard this before and we’ll tell you what happened the last time we heard that a Guns N’ Roses India tour was going to take place. In September 2009, our esteemed editor Arjun S Ravi came across an announcement by Bangalore-based firm Rhapsody Inc (read more about it here). A couple of days later, newspapers such The Asian Age and The Deccan Chronicle published an interview with the Director of Rhapsody Inc, Raj Sinha who confirmed the event (both papers no longer have the article in their archives but you can read our story on it here). The statement by Mr. Sinha definitely mentions that Guns N’ Roses would be coming to Bangalore but he confirms that only Axl Rose, Dizzy Reed and DJ Ashba would be there. He also said that, “There will also be a person called Troy and two other members.” When the director of the company that’s organizing the tour refers to an artist as “a person named Troy,” it doesn’t fill music fans with much confidence.

Ultimately, it turned out that GN’R would not be touring India. This was confirmed by “Troy” who awesomely posed with the Dimapur Commandos and explained that he was supposed to perform with Dizzy Reed later that year but Axl Rose and GN’R would not be involved in any way. Also, GN’R guitarist Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal confirmed on his Twitter account that GN’R would not be performing in India (check it all out here). Hopefully, there is some truth to it this time around because Korn actually do seem to be coming to India. In fact, it would be really good if the band confirmed it soon, otherwise we’d just get frustrated and get these guys to perform some GN’R classics for us.

Heeeeey! Just got home from a three-month European tour with GNR, slowly getting over that weird transition back to ‘normal life’, haha, ready to start being creative. I’ll be writing and recording and releasing and producing and guesting and teaching, maybe some light gigging, doing whatever I can before having to press the pause button on it all and hit the road again. I was planning on writing instrumental guitar music but every time I have a song idea I start thinking of vocal melodies and lyrics, gaaaaahhhh!!!!!

Bumblefoot indicates another tour in the near future....

Bumblefoot was asked about this during his chat session this morning:

[5:57 PM] bumblefoot: I don't think it's been formally announced and until it is I have to assume they.....

[5:57 PM] bumblefoot: ...still need to dot I's & cross T's, but it's looking pretty good for India Smile

Yay!

This article says GN'R will play India this year: http://www.salon.com/2012/10/03/indias_dweeby_metal_heads/

And while this year’s concert program features geriatric rockers like Megadeth, Slayer, Guns-N-Roses and even Carlos Santana, there are signs of change on the horizon.
