GUNS N ROSES CANCEL TOUR - Sunday, December 08, 2002 1:15 PM
GUNS N' ROSES Tour Cancelled!!! - Dec. 8, 2002

The remaining shows of GUNS N' ROSES' North American tour have been cancelled, according to Pennsylvania' s CKY, who were tapped to provide support at all the dates through Jan. 3, 2003 in Los Angeles, California.

The following is a message from CKY posted in the " Band Journal" section (dubbed " Shit Talk" ) of their official web site:

" GUNS N ROSES TOUR CANCELLED!! TYPICAL. And freakishly EXPECTED. Haha. They really fucked the Philly fans over, really bad idea… I wouldn' t suggest they come back... So… we are going home after over 50 shows... from our own headlining shows to Tony Hawk' s boom boom huck jam tour on to a month of the fucked-up GNR tour, it has been great... CKY did play in NYC at Madison Square Garden (legendary) and in Philly at the cancelled FU center show on Friday. So we played the (2nd) cancelled show that resulted in a Philly riot... Part of history… Glad to be part of it… More history to come... We are definitely psyched to take a short break and get back to more playing and fucking shit up the way we like it. Better the change."



FUCKERS

This should come as a suprise to nobody, but those few GNR fanatics in the forum that somehow defend Axl no matter what. Well If you are one of those few Axl apologists don' t feel bad if this is the end, you can always go to QR.com and join their ranks.

Who is CKY?

And did they say why the cancelation? Is Axl just a loser or was attendance pitiful? Any reason at all?

CKY was the shityt band opening...

I read a few different things that the promoters pulled the plug on this because they have had riots in 2 cities when the band no shows....and I dont think they wanna be liable for that type of carnage.

This will negate any other tour by Guns N Roses ever again, I have to wonder what will happen with the cd now.

Word has it that Clear Channel pulled the plug on the remaining shows. They only sold out 2 shows out of 17, and one of them was the no-show in Philly. Screw Axhole, he deserves everything he gets now. Another rumor is he was busy watching the Laker-Maverick game, and never left N.Y. for Philly.

yeah no offence to anyone, but for some reason how could you not think this was gonna happen? It was downhill as soon as he didnt show up to the vancouver show.. Axl will always be a douchebag, he doesnt care about the fans, its all about the almighty dollar.

CKY kicks ass!

The band features Jess Margera (brother of pro-skater/" stuntman" Bam Margera) and some other guys. Their most well-known song is " 98 Quite Bitter Beings" - the background music played on Jackass when the guys are crashing shopping carts.
