Fernando Lebeis, the son of Beta Lebeis — GUNS N' ROSES frontman Axl Rose's personal assistant — has shot down reports that GN'R will play three private shows in Brazil and Argentina during the band's current tour of South America.
Accoording to Reuters, organizer Jamison Ernest announced on Monday that GUNS N' ROSES will play three secret gigs at undisclosed locations in Sao Paulo on Thursday and Buenos Aires on March 20. Plans were also said to be in the works for a show in Rio De Janeiro.
Ernest said each venue will hold about 150 people but declined to reveal too much information for fear of riots by uninvited guests.
In a posting on the message board of the GUNS N' ROSES fan site Here Today... Gone To Hell!, Lebeis responded to the Reuters report by stating, "Sorry, guys, there will not be three secret shows in South America."
He added, "Sorry for the confusion, some people just need to be quiet and enjoy the sun."
GUNS N' ROSES' 11-date South American tour, the band's first trek around the continent since its heyday in 1992, began on Sunday in Brasilia. Dates are on tap through April 1 in Quito, Ecuador. The band will also play Uruguay, Chile, Peru, Venezuela and Colombia.
