The band is set to start their European run this Saturday (May 7), it has now been revealed that a significant number of fans requested a refund for the May 16 gig in Werchter, Belgium.
Live Nation offered fans the opportunity to request a refund until last night (May 2) if they didn’t want to see ‘Axl/DC. Live Nation may not have expected it but 7,000 tickets were returned. That’s a pretty big number. The tickets were then divvied up with 1,000 going to fans on the waiting list and the other 6,000 are on sale to the public.
Before requesting a refund, fans were able to hear what it would sound like with Axl instead of Brian.
Turns out the internet trolls may not be trolls after all! Some people (maybe 7,000 or so) are genuinely unhappy with Axl fronting the band.
