Guns N’ Roses have issued a short statement confirming their European tour won’t be going ahead this summer because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Axl Rose, Slash, Duff McKagan and co. were due to open the stadium trek in just nine days’ time at Passeio Martimo De Alges in Lisbon, Portugal.
The latest European leg of the Not In This Lifetime… Tour was also scheduled to call in at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Friday 29th May and Saturday 30th May, Glasgow Green on Thursday 25th June and Dublin’s Marlay Park on Saturday 27th June.
Other countries on the trek include Portugal, Spain, Germany, Sweden, Austria, Italy, Switzerland, Poland, Czech Republic and The Netherlands.
“Sadly, the upcoming European tour will not be happening,” Guns N’ Roses said in their statement.
“Things are changing daily and we want to keep our fans, crew members and band safe. We are working hard with our promoters, venues and cities/countries on next steps and will make further announcements as soon as we can.
“Thank you for your patience, we will get through this together and look forward to seeing you all very soon.
