Last week, the highly anticipated Guns N’ Roses show in St. Louis, originally set for September 9, had to be postponed due to a cited reason of “illness.” Despite the band’s reassurance of a rescheduled date, rumors have been circulating, questioning the validity of the given explanation. Slash’s girlfriend, Meegan Hodges, took to social media to put these theories to rest.
According to Livewire – In the official statement posted by the band on social media, they mentioned the postponement was a result of illness without specifying which band member was affected. Earlier, frontman Axl Rose had hinted at vocal struggles in a tweet a few days before the scheduled performance. However, in the aftermath of the cancellation, some fans began speculating alternative reasons behind the decision.
A deleted Reddit post titled “Why Axl canceled the St. Louis show” garnered attention by suggesting dissatisfaction over ticket sales as a potential cause for the postponement. Other Reddit threads also hinted at rumors circulating before the official announcement was made, prompting concerns among ticket holders who were already en route to the event.
Amidst the swirl of conjecture, Meegan Hodges set the record straight via her Instagram story, confirming that someone within the band was genuinely ill and emphasized the need for understanding and support from the fans. She clarified that the show would be rescheduled for November and expressed appreciation for the band’s dedication, highlighting the intense physical demands of their extended performances.
In times of uncertainty, it’s crucial to rely on verified information and extend empathy towards artists dealing with health challenges. Guns N’ Roses has been a powerhouse in the music industry, consistently delivering electrifying performances, and it’s important for fans to stand united and patient during unexpected situations. Here’s to wishing a swift recovery for the ailing band member and looking forward to an epic show when they return to the stage.
