Guns N’ Roses wants to set the record straight


The publicist for GUNS N’ ROSES has released the following official statement to BLABBERMOUTH.NET regarding the reports that the band was two hours late in taking the stage at this year’s Rock In Rio festival on October 2 in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil:

“GUNS N’ ROSES would like to set the record straight on Rock In Rio. The festival’s inadequate production and the downpour of rain delayed the event. Anyone who was there knows that SYSTEM OF A DOWN did not leave the stage until close to 1:15 in the morning. SYSTEM’s extensive stage production did not finish coming offstage until 1:45 a.m. GN’R’s production was up and ready to go at 2:15 a.m. Axl [Rose, GUNS N’ ROSES lead singer] got to the venue before 1 a.m. and he came ready to go onstage. The inadequate cover of the Rock In Rio stage caused a further delay when the soundboard went down due to water damage and was replaced as quick as possible. GN’R walked onstage at 2:40 a.m. and played for two-and-a-half hours in the pouring rain. GN’R would never seek to intentionally disrespect anyone, especially their fans.”
