It's almost as if the PR campaign for Guns N Roses' world tour knew what all Malaysian rock fans would be thinking before we asked it. "Are Guns N Roses' coming to Malaysia instead this time?" "Not in this lifetime... we'll be in Singapore." We wonder if Malaysia was ever even a consideration during their meetings. Did we even cross their minds? Well... not in this lifetime.
Yes, once again we've been jilted on the global tour stage
by yet another band. So close, yet so far. This time, Guns N' Roses is going to Changi Exhibition Centre, Singapore
on Saturday, 25 February, 2017
. And it's a really big deal because founder Axl Rose
and members, Slash
and Duff McKagan
, are reuniting for the tour!
