In a now-deleted update to their website, Guns N’ Roses confirmed that they’d be coming to South Africa to perform one show on Friday the 30th of November.
If you’re fan you’ll know that this is a rumour that has been doing the rounds for quite some time, but now we have a confirmation. It does suck for the promoter (presumably Big Concerts, perhaps AMP Events) to have a boo-boo happen on a scale this massive, but such is life and the perils of not hiring someone who knows their way around a back-end (get your mind out the gutter) properly.
Besides, they should have known that they would never get away with a slip up like that when there are thousands of adoring fans that properly have “Guns N’ Roses” and “Johannesburg” saved as a Google Alert. Start saving for those tickets now.
