Axl Rose concluded Guns N ‘Roses’ European tour with a note on Twitter in which he thanked fans for their support, dedicating the band’s trip to the late Taylor Hawkins and take down “murdering little man” Vladimir Putin – all in just a few paragraphs.
The singer took time this weekend to “thank everyone in London for understanding r’s challenges and once again apologize to fans in Scotland for having to postpone a performance there.”
The band, “on doctor’s orders,” canceled their gig in Scotland earlier this month due to illness. In her update, Rose thanked Carrie Underwood for joining them at their London concerts, joking, “At least someone can sing.”
Speaking of Guns N ‘Roses’ tour, Rose wrote in her note: “It was just a simple gesture and it’s awkward in the face of gravity of something like this but with effort. pay our respects, we want to dedicate this tour to our friend Taylor Hawkins,” Rose wrote Saturday (July 16) in honor of the Foo Fighters drummer, who passed away in March. “Taylor is a really cool guy and it’s been great to meet him! He’s such a great guy that’s always been welcome on tours the last few years! This is a terrible thing and heart of mine! he will be for his family, friends, band members and everyone who loves him.”
He added, “I would also like to thank everyone who showed such love and support during the tour for the people of Ukraine and their noble and terrifying fight for freedom against the Ukrainian people. a totalitarian regime increasingly run by a callous, lying, murderous little man. with outdated ambitions and no regard for human life”.
The tour will kick off back to South America in September before heading to Mexico, Japan, Australia and New Zealand.
