Report: GN'R Guatemala Concert Cancelled
Wednesday • April 14, 2010

According to the Nuestro Diario newspaper, Guns N' Roses April 13, 2010 concert in Guatemala City, Guatemala was cancelled due to poor ticket sales.

"I feel sad and helpless in this situation," Pedro Michelena, the president of the company in charge of the event, Success Music Entertainment, told the newspaper. "We know that thousands of Guatemalans had the intention of seeing Guns N' Roses."

Guns N' Roses was scheduled to play a single concert tonight at Estadio El Ejército, which has a capacity of more than 15,000, but only about 3,000 tickets had been sold ahead of the event, according to the paper.

Concert organizers said in a statement that they will announce within 72 hours how ticket holders can go about getting a refund.

As previously reported, Guns N' Roses' April 9, 2010 concert at Estadio Ricardo Saprissa in San Jose, Costa Rica was cancelled due to a faulty stage setup. The production agency 28 Producciones, which was in charge of the event, sent out an apologetic email to fans and members of the press. The email assured ticket-holding fans that they would be reimbursed and that all inquiries should be referred to the web page 28producciones.com.

According to Oscar Morales, Global Production , a company involved in the production of the concert in Guatemala, there are several reasons that led to the cancellation. First, the equipment used in the recital of Costa Rica would be the same would be implemented in today's presentation at the Army Stadium, as in the country do not have enough structures for an assembly of this type. Therefore, in Guatemala could not mount the concert. Second, bring GN'R a new date would represent a change in the tour logistics and the cost of relocating the team and the band will be expensive. Third, the low sales of concert tickets (less than two thousand entries, through Sunday).
