The Rock-N-Roll Allstars tour of South America appears to be in serious trouble, with all future performances bar one being cancelled.
The Rock-N-Roll Allstars – the much-hyped supergroup featuring past and present members of Kiss, Guns N’ Roses, Def Leppard, Skid Row, Deep Purple, The Cult, Billy Idol and Alice In Chains – now have just a single show remaining on their itinerary: in Lima, Peru on April 27.
The band were originally booked to play 11 gigs. They have done just two so far: in Paraguay and Argentina.
Previously advertised performances in Chile, Ecuador, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Panama, Columbia and Venzuela have been mysteriously deleted from the Allstars’ website.
The band previously decided to pull their April 21 show in Brazil. They issued the following statement:
“We are in South America and are ready to rock, but the circumstances are beyond our control. We were informed before flying to Brazil today that many other artists have pulled out of the event [the Metal Open Air Festival] as well as local security. We are very concerned for the safety of the fans and artists whom are already at the festival.
“We are receiving confirmed reports from other bands and friends on the ground that the event is dangerous and a disaster. Please be safe, and we look forward to rocking for you in the future.”
