Guns N' Roses cancel Glasgow gig over 'illness and medical advice'

The band played a shortened set at two London shows reportedly plagued by issues but have aborted their Glasgow performance altogether.

Guns N’ Roses cancel Glasgow Green concert over ‘illness and medical advice’

American music legends Guns N’ Roses have cancelled their live performance at Glasgow Green on medical grounds.

The rock band said they would be unable to perform in the city due to “illness and medical advice” in an apology to fans over the decision.

The gig was scheduled to go ahead as a warm up to the TRNSMT festival which takes over the green space every summer.

It comes just days after contemporaries the Red Hot Chili Peppers were also forced to postpone their concert at Bellahouston Park due to an unspecified illness.

Fans have been urged to keep their tickets and await any further updates on plans to reschedule the gig.

A statement from the band said: “Sadly, due to illness and medical advice, GNR will not be able to perform in Glasgow, tomorrow, July, 5.

“We are working on rescheduling options for this show so please hold onto your tickets and wait for a further update.”

Crowds at two London shows held at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium were reportedly left disappointed by a catalogue of issues surrounding the concerts last week.

Doors for the gig reportedly opened two hours late and when the band took to the stage, sound problems meant those further back were unable to hear frontman Axl Rose’s vocals.

Rose is said to have told the crowd he was “having issues” with his voice just seven songs into the second night when the band played a truncated 19-song set.

No date for the rescheduled gig has yet been announced.
