COVID restrictions have forced the postponement
Guns N Roses have once again postponed tour dates due to COVID-19. The rockers were set to perform three shows in Mexico in October 2021, but have postponed to 2022 due to government restrictions.
“Due to the government shut down of large gatherings and COVID restrictions, our dates in Mexico next month Oct 2021 will need to rescheduled to next year,” they share on social media. “We are currently working on a routing and will update you all as soon as possible.”
All tickets will be valid for the new dates in 2022, when they’re announced.
The iconic band is currently in the midst of a US run after announcing rescheduled dates and 14 additional new shows at stadiums and arenas. The massive touring production wraps with two shows in Hollywood, FL at the Hard Rock Live Arena on October 2nd & 3rd. Wolfgang Van Halen’s Mammoth WVH is supporting the Live Nation-produced trek.
In April, GNR postponed its 2021 European tour dates to 2022 with the addition of Gary Clark Jr as support. The band will now kick off the trek on June 4, 2022 with new dates in Norway, Czech Republic, Poland, Netherlands, and Italy.
Last month, the band “Absurd,” their first new music since reuniting with original guitarist Slash and bassist Duff McKagan five years ago. The song was produced by Axl Rose and Chinese Democracy producer Caram Costanzo. It was a Chinese Democracy outtake originally called “Silkworms,” but has been performed a handful of times since 2001.
