Concert was set to begin at 9:30PM. Concert was cancelled at 8:00PM by GM Place managers learned Axl Rose was not even in Canada yet. So the concert was cancelled a few minutes before all the fans where set to enter the venue.

Shash on the GUNS N' ROSES tour kickoff in Vancouver that became a riot instead:

"Nothing surprises me. When he really has all his shit together, Axl is brilliant, so it'll be happening. It just takes him a while to get around to it. As far as showing up to gigs? That's all par for the course. We've all seen that movie. What better way to kick off a GUNS N' ROSES tour than to miss the first gig?"
