2001.11.08 - Press release - Guns N' Roses European Tour Dates Cancelled (Doug Goldstein) 2001_110

GUNS N’ ROSES EUROPEAN TOUR DATES CANCELLED

Guns N’ Roses manager Doug Goldstein of Sanctuary Music Management has announced the cancellation of the band’s upcoming ‘Chinese Democracy’ UK and European tour dates. The dates, which have sold hundreds of thousands of tickets in advance, were to follow Guns N’ Roses extremely successful return to live work before an audience of 250,000 people at the Rock in Rio Festival earlier this year.

Doug Goldstein commented, “To ensure Guns N’ Roses fans get the album they deserve, Axl Rose has spent every waking minute of everyday during the past 5 years writing, recording, and producing Guns’ first album of all new material since 1991. Following the euphoria of Rock in Rio, I jumped the gun and arranged a European tour as our plan was to have the new album out this year. Unforntunately, Buckethead’s illness not only stopped the tour but it also slowed down progress on ‘Chinese Democracy’.” As a result, touring right now is logistically impossible. I am very sorry to disappoint our fans but I can assure them that this is not what Axl wanted nor is it ‘Another page from the Howard Hughes of rock’ as some of the media will no doubt portray it. I made a plan and unfortunately it did not work out.

“The good news is that everyone is ecstatic with the album and we will be meeting with our label to schedule its release following which we will announce the rescheduled tour dates to coincide. Guns N’ Roses look forward to seeing everybody next year and once again please accept my apologies for the way this has played out.”

JUMPED THE GUN?

Manager Doug Goldstein claims touring for the group right now is "logistically impossible"...


GUNS N’ ROSES have postponed their European tour for a second time.

The shows, which have already been pulled once due to “internal haemorrhaging” sustained by guitarist BUCKETHEAD, will now not take place as planned in December.

A statement issued by band manager Doug Goldstein blames the delay to the long-awaited album ‘Chinese Democracy’ following the guitarist’s illness as one of the reasons for the second postponement.

The statement reads: “To ensure Guns N’ Roses fans get the album they deserve, Axl Rose has spent every waking minute of everyday during the past 5 years writing, recording, and producing Guns first album of all new material since 1991. Following the euphoria of Rock in Rio, I jumped the gun and arranged a European tour as our plan was to have the new album out this year.

“Unfortunately, Buckethead’s illness not only stopped the tour but it also slowed down progress on ‘Chinese Democracy’. As a result, touring right now is logistically impossible. I am very sorry to disappoint our fans but I can assure them that this is not what Axl wanted nor is it ‘Another page from the

Howard Hughes of rock’ as some of the media will no doubt portray it. I made a plan and unfortunately it did not work out.

“The good news is that everyone is ecstatic with the album and we will be meeting with our label to schedule its release following which we will announce the rescheduled tour dates to coincide. Guns N’ Roses look forward to seeing everybody next year and once again please accept my apologies for the way this has played out.”

The UK shows were due to take place at: London Docklands Arena (December 13-14)

Glasgow SECC (16)

Manchester Evening News Arena (18)

Birmingham NEC (19)

Guns N’ Roses Cancel Euro Tour

Guns N’ Roses Cancel European Tour To Continue Work On Long-Awaited Album

In the "Geez, big surprise" category

Axl Rose’s revamped Guns N’ Roses have yet again cancelled their European tour. This time around though, it is not due to an illness contracted by guitarist Buckethead or anything related to terrorism. No, this time the cancellation is due to manager Doug Goldstein booking the tour when the band still needed to be finishing up their long awaited album Chinese Democracy.

In an official statement issued by the band’s European agent yesterday, October 8th, Goldstein claims that "following the euphoria of [the band's appearance at the] Rock in Rio [concert], I jumped the gun and arranged a European tour as our plan was to have the new album out this year. Unfortunately, [guitarist] Buckethead's illness not only stopped the tour, but it slowed down our progress on Chinese Democracy. As a result, touring right now is logistically impossible."

Guns N’ Roses originally scheduled their European headlining tour for June, but eventually cancelled, citing an unspecified stomach ailment suffered by guitarist Buckethead. The dates were then rebooked for December.

"I am very sorry to disappoint our fans," said Goldstein, "but I can assure them that this is not what Axl wanted, nor is it 'another page from the Howard Hughes of rock,' as some media will no doubt portray it. I made a plan, and unfortunately it did not work out.

"The good news is that everyone is ecstatic with the album and we will be meeting with the label to schedule its release, following which we will announce the rescheduled dates to coincide. GUNS N’ ROSES look forward to seeing everybody next year, and once again, please accept my apologies for the way this has played out."

Guns 'Officially' Cancel ...What A Surprise

In an unsurprising move Guns N' Roses have officially confirmed that they will NOT be fulfilling their proposed European tour, as exclusively predicted by Metalhammer.co.uk weeks, nigh on aeons ago.
In a statement made yesterday band manger Doug Goldstein threw himself upon his sword stating:

"Following the euphoria of (the band's appearance at) Rock in Rio, I jumped the gun and arranged a European tour as our plan was to have the new album out this year. Unfortunately, Buckethead's illness not only stopped the tour, but it slowed down our progress on 'Chinese Democracy'.

"I am very sorry to disappoint our fans, but I can assure them that this is not what Axl wanted, nor is it 'another page from the Howard Hughes of rock,' as some media will no doubt portray it. I made a plan, and unfortunately it did not work out."

Business as usual at GN'R HQ then.
