Guns N' Roses Called Off Scheduled Concert After Alcohol Ban



Guns N' Roses canceled a gig at the Cumberland County Civic Center in Portland, ME, this week, reportedly after being told the band could not drink on stage.

Sorry fans, there won't be Guns N' Roses this week. The rock group has decided to call off a scheduled concert at the Cumberland County Civil Center in Portland, Maine after being told they could not drink on stage.

Inspectors from the state fire marshal's office reportedly gave the band the no-drinking order when they came to inspect the pyrotechnics planned for the Monday's concert Nov 13th in Portland. Stephen McCausland, spokesman for the Maine Public Safety Department said the band wanted to drink beer, wine and Jagermeister while performing.

Hours after being told that the drinking would violate state law, Guns N' Roses then came to the decision to cancel its concert, blaming the fire marshals for "making it impossible for the band to perform their show to the usual high standards that their fans deserve."

Guns N' Roses frontman, Axl Rose issued a statement on the band official site, explaining the situation and offering an apology for those ticket holders left in the lurch.
