GUNS N' ROSES PULL REST OF NORTH AMERICAN TOUR
Concert promoters CLEAR CHANNEL issued a brief statement last night (December 11) confirming that the remaining Guns N' Roses dates are definitely cancelled.


The statement gave no explanation for the cancellation of the remaining 13 dates on their troubled North American outing.


It simply read: "The remainder of the Guns N' Roses concert dates promoted by Clear Channel Entertainment have been cancelled. Refunds will be available at point of purchase."


The highly-anticipated 32-date North American leg of their Chinese Democracy tour has been hit with problems since the first scheduled date in Vancouver was pulled on November 7, resulting in a riot by disappointed fans outside the GM Place venue. While the concert's organisers claimed Axl Rose failed to turn up, the singer hit back saying he was in the air and on his way to the show when the plug was pulled by promoters.


The tour finally kicked off on November 8 at Tacoma Dome, but a further three dates were cancelled last week, the first at Philadelphia on Friday (December 6) failing to go ahead at 11.15pm, which led to a minor disturbance among fans. The subsequent dates until December 9 were then also shelved.


Last night's statement has now finally put the brakes on the tour, which was scheduled to end at The Forum in Los Angeles on January 3.


These dates have been eagerly awaited by Guns N' Roses fans, with the Madison Square Gardens show on December 5 in New York selling out within 15 minutes when it went on sale on September 30.
