GUNS N' ROSES Won't Be Opening For ROLLING STONES After All

MTV.com reports: Looks like GUNS N' ROSES won't be opening for the ROLLING STONES after all. The STONES put their European "Bigger Bang" tour on hold after Keith Richards was sidelined with a head injury last month, and now the band has announced that the Nürnberg and Leipzig, Germany, shows that Axl Rose and the gang were set to play in July have been canceled. Richards is ready to get back on the road, however, and the STONES' European tour will kick off July 11 in Italy. "Excuse me, I fell off my perch," Richards said in a statement on the band's official site. "Sorry to disrupt everyone's plans but now — it's full steam ahead! Ouch!" Rescheduled dates for postponed European shows are expected to be announced soon.
