Guns N’ Roses cancel Japanese tour dates

Injury forces Axl's men off the road

Guns N’ Roses have cancelled the opening dates of their Japanese tour following an injury.

Bassist Tommy Stinson fell down some stairs, causing a problem with one of his hands.

Posting on, Stinson wrote: “I feel so bad right now. I accidentally fell down a flight of stairs. I put my hand down to break my fall and heard a loud ‘pop’. The next morning my hand looked like a balloon.

“We had our last rehearsal a few days ago and shipped the gear to Japan and then this happened. I feel horrible.”

It is not known yet when the dates will be rescheduled.
