GUNS N' ROSES cancelled their concert at Milwaukee's Bradley Centre last night (28NOV06) after frontman Axl Rose contracted an ear and throat infection. The NOVEMBER RAIN frontman has been ordered to rest for several days and wasn't prepared to throw the rest of the band's US tour into doubt to play the Wisconsin city. A band statement reads, "I have been fighting this off for a long time but the doctor told me tonight that the only way not to jeopardize the balance of the tour is immediate rest. "We will now have three days off before continuing Friday. We are sorry to miss the fans in Milwaukee."
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
The two awards have made for a great 72nd birthday present for the country music icon.
