Plug Pulled On GNR Albany Date

The North American tour dates for Guns N' Roses had gone much more smoothly than the debacle last year's overseas tour became (story).  The trouble free run on these shores came to an end on Tuesday (11/22) when the the scheduled concert for the following night at the Times Union Center in Albany, NY was abruptly canceled for what the official release said were 'production problems'.  The fact the announcement also advised ticket holders to seek refunds pretty much blows out the possibility the date will ever be made up. The real 'production problem' in situations like this sometimes turns out to be that the act did not produce enough ticket sales for the show to make sense for the band or the promoter.  Not sayin' that's the case here, but the band's reputation for going on late, not going on at all and doing less that solid shows sometimes when they do play has probably made lot of the fans the group has managed to hold onto reluctant to invest ahead of time in tickets.  A lot of the upstate New York ones that did buy tickets may be joining their ranks now.
