Guns N’ Roses cancels show in St. Louis due to unspecified illness

Guns N’ Roses recently announced on social media that one of their band members has fallen ill, leading to the unfortunate cancellation of their St. Louis concert on Saturday. The iconic rock band shared a joint statement on Instagram, informing their fans about the postponement and assuring them that those unable to attend the rescheduled date will be eligible for a refund. Unfortunately, no further details were provided regarding the specific member who fell ill. Representatives for Guns ‘N Roses declined to comment further on the matter.

While Slash, the lead guitarist of the group, reposted the announcement on his Instagram, Axl Rose, the band’s lead singer, did not share the news. Guns N’ Roses explained the cancellation on Instagram as being due to an “illness.” Their most recent Instagram post, shared by the “Welcome to the Jungle” singer, showed footage from a concert in Toronto. After their scheduled St. Louis show, the band is set to perform in Knoxville, Tennessee on Tuesday, according to their website. It remains uncertain whether the band will be able to return to the stage by early next week.

Fans have expressed their opinions on the cancellation in the comments section of Guns N’ Roses’ Instagram. Many fans have noted the band’s troubled history with St. Louis, recalling the infamous “Riverport Riot” concert that took place on July 2, 1991. Some fans believe that there is always something amiss during their shows in St. Louis, while others believe that Axl Rose may have lingering negative feelings from that past incident. The riot occurred when Rose jumped into the crowd during the concert and left the show prematurely. This led to a chaotic situation, resulting in numerous arrests and injuries.

In conclusion, Guns N’ Roses had to cancel their St. Louis concert due to a band member falling ill. The specific details of the illness have not been disclosed. Fans have expressed their thoughts on social media, with some connecting the cancellation to the band’s troubled history in St. Louis. The band’s future performances remain uncertain, and it is unclear if they will be able to resume their tour as scheduled.

A riot ensued at a Guns N’ Roses concert in St. Louis in 1991 after Axl Rose jumped into the crowd and then left the show early.

According to Billboard, during the show 32 years ago, Rose got upset with a fan who had a camera and so he dove into the crowd to confront the person.

The “November Rain” singer, now 61, reportedly then said, Thanks to the lame-ass security, I’m going home! … We’re outta here,” before taking off his mic.

Per Billboard, the audience then grew upset and a riot ensued, resulting in several arrests and 65 injuries.
