Axl Rose Gives Statement On Health Issues And Working Vocal Coach
Axl Rose has released a statement on social media regarding his health issues, adding that he’s been working with a vocal coach as he recovers, following the recent cancelation of Guns N’ Roses‘ performance in Glasgow earlier this week.
Guns N’ Roses played two consecutive shows in Tottenham, England, on July 1 and 2, and during the second night, Rose admitted to the crowd that he was struggling a bit and had slept in the stadium the night before instead in their hotel. The singer then adjusted his vocals and sang in his lower register for the rest of the concert.
When Monday (July 4) came, the band announced that they would be canceling their Glasgow show, set for the following night, “due to illness and medical advice.” Rose further explained on his Twitter post:
“I’d like to thank everyone for their well wishes! It’s greatly appreciated! We apologize for the inconvenience of postponing Glasgow. I’ve been following Dr.’s orders, getting rest, working with a vocal coach and sorting out our sound issues. Seems good so far. Thanks again for everyone’s concern!
“At the end of the day, it’s about giving you the fans the best of ourselves and the best time we can give you and that’s all I, the band and crew are focused on. See you in Munich!”
Even though the rocker struggled with his vocals, fans are still voicing out their support. One fan wrote on Reddit:
“His range was one of the best back in the day (from videos I’ve seen). The lower tone is so underrated and the songs would still sound great, he would probably enjoy himself more knowing he isn’t straining his already damaged voice. He must be self aware to know that he can’t do what he used to and the fans would understand.”
