Could Coronavirus Cause GUNS N’ ROSES To Cancel Summer Tour?
GUNS N’ ROSES have been on their never ending “Not in This Lifetime Tour” for the past five years, but it seems like coronavirus could put a stop to it. Just in the past week we’ve had major bands including GREEN DAY, SLIPKNOT and others cancel their tours in addition to festivals (South by Southwest) completely being cancelled.
