Guns N’ Roses: TONIGHT's Southaven concert canceled

Guns N’ Roses have canceled their December 5 show (TONIGHT) at the DeSoto Civic Center in Southaven, Mississippi.

"Due to production issues, the DeSoto Civic Center is unable to host the scheduled concert for GUNS N' ROSES set to take place on Monday, December 5, 2011. We apologize for any inconvenience to ticket purchasers.”

"Ticket refunds are available at all points of purchase.”

This marks the second recent GNR show to be canceled due to “production issues”; the band’s November 23 gig in Albany was also shut down close to the day of the event.

“There were permit issues with the building and the venue [in Albany],” guitarist Richard Fortus told Cincinnati’s CityBeat. “We have a huge production and it is very heavy. The production, it has to be supported and we have to feel safe about it and it has to be within their restrictions and that didn’t work out. They tried to resolve everything. We have had this issue a few times in different venues and it has been resolved and we were just not able to resolve it there.”

No word on whether or not the same issues arose with tonight’s show in Southaven.
