Hard Rock band Guns N Roses’ April 13, 2010 concert in Guatemala City, Guatemala was reportedly cancelled due to poor ticket sales, according to the Nuestro Diario newspaper.
Reports say that Guns N Roses was supposed to play a concert on April 13, 2010 at Estadio El Ejército. The venue can accommodate more than 15,000 people, but only about 3,000 tickets had been sold!
Pedro Michelena, the President of the event management company in charge of the concert said:”I feel sad and helpless in this situation….We know that thousands of Guatemalans had the intention of seeing GUNS N’ ROSES.”
The organizers of the concert said that they will announce within 72 hours how all those who purchased tickets can get a refund.
Just a few days ago, Guns N Roses’ April 9, 2010 concert at Estadio Ricardo Saprissa in San Jose, Costa Rica was cancelled as a result of a faulty stage setup. No one was injured in the stage wreckage.
Last month, GnR had to cancel a concert at Rio De Janeiro’s Apoteose Stadium when heavy rain caused a similar problem to their cancelled Costa Rica gig.
Guns N Roses is an American hard rock band and is famous for songs like “Sweet Child of Mine”, “Paradise City” among others. The current lineup of GNR includes lead vocalist Axl Rose, lead guitarists Ron Thal and DJ Ashba, rhythm guitarist Richard Fortus, bassist Tommy Stinson, drummer Frank Ferrer, keyboardist Dizzy Reed and synthesizer player Chris Pitman.
