The slated concert for Adler, the band led by former Guns N’ Roses drummer Steven Adler, that was to go down on April 1st at the Whisky A Go Go in Hollywood, California has been canceled. However, in a tweet from the venue’s official Twitter account, a message reads “Stay tuned for a big announcement! #GunsNRoses”
At this point, Guns N’ Roses have announced six headlining performances throughout April, including two in Las Vegas and two at California’s Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival and two in Mexico City.
The band lineup consists of original members, singer Axl Rose, guitarist Slash and bassist Duff McKagan who will be performing together for the first time in 22 years. The rest of the band lineup has yet to be officialy confirmed, however it has been believed that keyboardist Dizzy Reed, guitarist Richard Fortus and drummer Frank Ferrer are all involved.
Speculation has continued as to the involvement of Steven Adler, as nothing has been confirmed and the drummer’s
history of drug problems have some of the band members wondering if he can hold it together on the road.
Adler said last October that he would be the last person to hear about his involvement in a Guns N’ Roses reunion because Slash couldn’t trust him to keep the information secret, saying: “I’ve known for Slash thirty-what… thirty-nine years, and he knows that I would climb to the [highest] mountain and I would do, as Paul Stanley would say, ‘shout it out loud,'” he said.
Adler was terminated from Guns N’ Roses back in 1990 due to his drug use and alcoholism. He was replaced by Matt Sorum.
