Gilby Clarke postpones UK and Spanish tour dates

Former Guns N’ Roses guitarist Gilby Clarke has postponed a series of UK and Spanish tour dates that were set to begin this week.

A total of seven shows are affected, including four in the UK and three in Spain.

“I regret that we couldn't make these dates happen,” says Clarke. “You can refund your tickets or keep them for the rescheduled dates."

Rescheduled concerts will be announced soon.

Clarke will now kick off his summer shows at the Tiszavirag festival in Szolnok, Hungary on June 20; he’ll play a series of US shows with Quiet Riot and Faster Pussycat starting July 10 in San Diego, California.

The guitarist recently released a new video for his 1994 track, “Tijuana Jail”, to mark the song’s 20th anniversary.

The video for the tune, which originally appeared on Clarke’s solo debut album, “Pawnshop Guitars”, was directed by Rocco Guarino.

The original album features the distinction of having all of the then-current members of Guns N’ Roses appearing on the project; Clarke was a member of GNR from 1991 – 1994 before moving on to play with Slash’s Snakepit and Rock Star Supernova, as well as issuing a series of solo records.
