Guns N’ Roses Issue Statement Regarding ‘Rock In Rio’ Show

Just days after (apparently) issuing a statement defending their notorious late stage arrivals – some stale drivel about how this is rock and roll, this is a party, you’re a nerd if you have to get up the next morning, etc – Guns N’ Roses are now speaking out saying their lateness at the Rock In Rio festival a couple weeks back was not the group’s fault.

So, Axl, that means we can expect you promptly on stage at 8:15 at Target Center November 13th?

The staement reads “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.”

It adds “GN’R's production was up and ready to go at 2:15 a.m. Axl (Rose) 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.”

So, Axl, you’ve apparently experienced similar factors at every show you’ve done in the past twenty years?

Talk about bad luck.
