EDITORIAL - GUNS N ROSES CANCELLATION OF PHILADELPHIA CONCERT
GUNS N ROSES concert to take place at the GM PLACE on
December 6th 2002 CANCELLED while 15,000 fans are seated in the arena.
9:30PM, Mix Master Mike end his performance. By 10:15, people just knew something was wrong when the crew started to pack up and leave.
RIOT = PUBLICITY
This is a no brainer, a last minute cancellation of a GUNS N ROSES concert is the perfect recipe for a riot, and lots of publicity on all news channels and newspapers. Whether it's good or bad publicity remains to be seen.
Could this have planned in order to stimulate ticket saled for future venues? Thet is somewhat unlikely or plainly illogical. People did get hurt at the riot. Makes someone wonder if the cost/benefit would really be worth it.
Well, canceling a concert while 15,000 enthusiastic GNR fans think they are going to see GNR at the last minute is very dangerous. This is a no brainer. The concert should have been cancelled sooner. We are just lucky that only two people where sent to the hospital.
