Guns Did Not Cancel Dates! UK Still On!
A spokesperson for the band’s record company told Metal Hammer.co.uk last night:
“The Korean dates never were never fully confirmed and an over eager promoter made the announcement that they were happening prematurely. I have just spoken to the band’s management and Axl is currently on stage rehearsing for their show in Hong Kong.”
Many fans view this new incarnation of GN’R with scepticism, but Metal Hammer editor Chris Ingham, who caught the band at last year’s Rock In Rio festival urges fans to “put your cynicism behind you ’cause it’s only you that’s gonna lose out!”
“Hearing the new stuff is an experience,” says Chris. “Not necessarily a good one but hearing the old stuff played better than the original band is a revelation! Any doubts that you may have are gone as soon as you hear the opening chords of welcome to the jungle. They are an awesome band.”
