Due to the illness of guitarist Buckethead, Guns N’ Roses has cancelled their planed European tour. The tour was set to kick off on June 1st in Germany but Buckethead has been experiencing some unexplained hemorrhaging in which doctors are still trying to pin down the cause of.
Due to his illness Buckethead has been unable to rehearse with the group. News seeped out this week that the promoter for the European tour was asked to postpone the tour due to Buckethead’s health, but according to several reports the tour has now been officially cancelled.
The new version of Guns N’ Roses featuring Axl Rose as the only original member was expected to release the long anticipated “Chinese Democracy” album this summer, but at this point that doesn’t seem likely. So it appears that the history of false starts and stops for Guns N’ Roses continues.
When will we see and hear the new Guns N’ Roses? That remains to be seen, but we here at antiMUSIC are hoping for a speedy recovery for Buckethead.
