On Wednesday evening, concert promoter Clear Channel Entertainment confirmed what a source close to the band told MTV News on Monday — Guns N’ Roses’ tour has been canceled.
“The remainder of the Guns N’ Roses concert dates promoted by Clear Channel Entertainment have been canceled,” read a brief statement to the press. “Refunds will be available at point of purchase.”
The string of shuttered shows runs through January. No reason was given for pulling the plug.
Earlier this week, Clear Channel would only confirm that shows from December 6 to 9, in Philadelphia and Washington, D.C., were canceled, and earlier on Wednesday would only say that that evening’s show was called off (see “Guns N’ Roses Dates Canceled” )
Word of the tour’s premature end came after the band canceled a show Friday at Philadelphia’s First Union Center. A minor disturbance followed, mirroring the scene that unfolded when the plug was pulled on the group’s scheduled tour opener in Vancouver, British Columbia, last month (see “Fans Riot After Guns N’ Roses Tour Kickoff Canceled: Kurt Loder Reports” ).
