Guns N’ Roses won’t be in Mérida in 2021 after all.

Los Angeles rockers Guns N’ Roses has canceled its October concert in Mérida, to the surprise of … almost no one.

The notice comes just as Yucatán began to relax some of its pandemic-related restrictions.

“Gunners, due to (the) government shut down of large gatherings & Covid restrictions, our October 2021 dates in Mexico will need to be rescheduled to next year. We will update you as soon as possible.” the band announced on Twitter and Facebook.

Tickets, which cost upwards of US$600, will be good when they reschedule next year, the band said. Refunds weren’t mentioned.

Their concerts in Monterrey and Guadalajara were also postponed.

Local media earlier reported that the concert, slated for the state fairgrounds at Xmatkuil, lacked city permits.

Their concert tour has continued as normal in Guns N’ Roses’ home country. Thursday night’s Wrigley Field concert was held after organizers were forced to reschedule it in July.

They still plan to tour Australia and New Zealand in October.

Guns N’ Roses is a hard rock band that was first formed in 1985.
