GNR veröffentlichten eine Presseerklärung in der sie das Konzert am 6.11.2006 absagen. Die Gründe sind der Presseerklärung zufolge die Brandschutzvorschriften. Hier die Presse-Erklärung: MONDAY NIGHT’S GUNS N‘ ROSES SHOW IN PORTLAND, MAINE IS CANCELLED Monday night’s show at the Cumberland County Civic Center has been cancelled due to limitations imposed by local fire marshals. A band spokesperson commented, „Axl and the band are very unhappy about not being able to play for the fans in Portland but have been advised after several meetings with local fire marshals Nelson Collins and Bob Cadigan that they have made it impossible for the band to perform their show to the usual high standards that their fans deserve. „More importantly, we have been informed that officials intend to enforce rules and regulations that should not and do not apply in this venue. Our production manager and crew have been in this building with Clay Aiken and Green Day and none of the restrictions imposed on Guns N‘ Roses were experienced by those artists. It is our opinion that they are going out of their way to target and single out Guns N‘ Roses and the band’s loyal fans. Following consultation with the band’s manager, agent and promoter, it was felt that it was best to cancel the show. It is a regrettable decision, particularly at this late notice, but it is of paramount importance that our fans have the best experience possible without being harassed and threatened. „We look forward to continuing the tour in Worcester on Wednesday.“ **PLEASE NOTE THAT TICKETS CAN BE EXCHANGED AT THE DCU CENTER SHOW IN WORCESTER, MASS. THIS WEDNESDAY NIGHT – NOVEMBER 8TH. If you are unable to attend the Worcester show, refunds will be available at point of purchase.
