Guns N' Roses Rep Shoots Down Reports Of 'Secret' South American Shows

Fernando Lebeis, the son of Beta Lebeis — Guns N' Roses frontman Axl Rose's personal assistant — has shot down reports that GN'R will play three private shows in Brazil and Argentina during the band's current tour of South America.

According to Reuters, organizer Jamison Ernest announced on Monday that Guns N' Roses will play three secret gigs at undisclosed locations in Sao Paulo on Thursday and Buenos Aires on March 20. Plans were also said to be in the works for a show in Rio De Janeiro.

Ernest said each venue will hold about 150 people but declined to reveal too much information for fear of riots by uninvited guests.

In a posting on the message board of the Guns N' Roses fan site Here Today... Gone To Hell!, Lebeis responded to the Reuters report by stating, "Sorry, guys, there will not be three secret shows in South America."

He added, "Sorry for the confusion, some people just need to be quiet and enjoy the sun."

Guns N' Roses' 11-date South American tour, the band's first trek around the continent since its heyday in 1992, began on Sunday in Brasilia. Dates are on tap through April 1 in Quito, Ecuador. The band will also play Uruguay, Chile, Peru, Venezuela and Colombia.

Guns N' Roses plan "secret" shows in South America

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Guns N’ Roses will play three private shows in Brazil and Argentina during the band’s current tour of South America, the organizer said on Monday.

The shows are set for undisclosed locations in Sao Paulo on Thursday and Buenos Aires on March 20. Plans are also in the works for a show in Rio De Janeiro.

Organizer Jamison Ernest said each venue will hold about 150 people. He declined to reveal too much information for fear of riots by uninvited guests. He will co-host the Sao Paulo show with Brazilian model Ana Beatriz Barros.

The 11-date tour, the band’s first trek around the continent since its heyday in 1992, began on Sunday in Brasilia. Dates are on tap through April 1 in Quito, Ecuador. The band will also play Uruguay, Chile, Peru, Venezuela and Colombia.

Ernest, a friend of Guns N’ Roses singer Axl Rose, also runs a clothing company and has a band, both named Yellow Fever. Guns N’ Roses previously played three secret shows, two in New York City and one in London.

Rose is the only remaining member left from the band when its popularity peaked during a decade spanning the 1980s and 1990s. The other members were either ousted or quit. Even though its 2008 album “Chinese Democracy,” its first release in 17 years, was a major flop, the band remains a strong concert draw.

Rose and his new crop of bandmates were last in Brazil to play the Rock in Rio festival in January 2001.
