No South African Dates for Guns N' Roses

April 24, 2007 (8:30 am) GMT
Guns N' Roses is forced to postpone the South African dates after bassist's injury that is not yet healed.

After announcing that injured bassist Tommy Stinson will be fit enough to proceed with South African gigs, now regretfully announced that the dates will be cancelled. Stinson is still in his recovery process and cannot cover the April 27 and May 1 nights.

Stated in a read statement is: "Stinson recently sprained his left wrist in a fall and the injury has not yet healed. As a result, Guns N Roses will not make their two scheduled performances at My Coke Fest in South Africa at the end of the month."

The band's absence from My Coke Festival leaves the event losing its headliners. They were supposed to appear alongside and at Johannesburg's New Market Racecouse this Friday. Japan's date that started earlier than this practically was also cancelled and since then, has not received any re-scheduled dates.
