Rock ‘N’ Roll All Stars cancel all concerts except Lima, Peru

The Rock ‘N’ Roll All Stars have canceled their series of Central and South American concerts, with the exception of an April 27 show in Lima, Peru.

The All Stars are made up KISS’ Gene Simmons, Joe Elliott of Def Leppard, Sebastian Bach, three former members of Guns N’ Roses, and players from The Cult, Alice In Chains, Collective Soul and Black Country Communion.

The rock supergroup have released the following statement:

"Rock 'N' Roll Allstars regret to inform our fans that the shows we had scheduled in Ecuador, Colombia, Costa Rica, Panama, Guatemala and Venezuela have been cancelled. An incredible effort was made to work with local promoters to bring our show to the fans but they made it impossible for us to do so. We are saddened that we will not be coming to Central America and will do everything possible to ensure that our fans receive refunds for all tickets purchased.

“We are in South America and just had amazing shows in Paraguay and Argentina where thousands of fans came to hear the hits of Guns N’ Roses, KISS, Def Leppard and more.

“The show in Lima, Peru [on April 27 at Jockey Club] is still on sale and the band is still playing this show. Thank you for your support and we hope to see each and every one of you soon."

The band played an intimate club show in Buenos Aires on Sunday – check out the footage here.
