Guns N’ Roses postpone European tour

Guns N’ Roses have postponed the upcoming European leg of their ongoing Not In This Lifetime tour due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The spring series was scheduled to begin in Lisbon, Portugal on May 20 and wrap up in Dublin, Ireland on June 27.

“GN’R Fam: Sadly, the upcoming European tour will not be happening,” announced the band. “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…”

Guns N’ Roses last performed at the Vive Latino festival in Mexico City on March 14; the event made headlines when more than a dozen acts cancelled their appearance over coronavirus concerns while local authorities allowed it to proceed despite calls for it to be postponed during the global health crisis, reported Billboard.

The group has since rescheduled plans for a series of Central and South American shows that are currently set to start in November.
