Rose Explains Guns N' Roses' Live Earth Absence

Rocker AXL ROSE has posted a long explanation on GUNS N' ROSES' website letting fans know why he didn't make an appearance at the Live Earth extravaganza on Saturday (07Jul07). The Paradise City singer reveals he was originally asked to play the Rio De Janeiro, Brazil leg of the climate change awareness-raising event. When this fell through, Rose claims he volunteered to perform at either Live Earth Sydney in Australia or Live Earth Tokyo in Japan, only to have his offer turned down. He writes: "We were not asked until the last couple weeks while we were on tour in Australia and have upcoming sold-out dates already rescheduled in Japan... "We have attempted to find a solution to be able to perform in Rio, but unfortunately none has been suggested. "I was asked to perform individually with Lenny Kravitz by the promoters and Mr. Gore. As we were working this out, Lenny unfortunately became injured and temporarily canceled his involvement from the event. "According to the promoters, by the time they had reconfirmed Lenny's performance, there wasn't enough time to arrange flights for myself to Brazil and then to Japan for our upcoming shows. "Unfortunately, I was not informed that Lenny's performance was reconfirmed... Guns N' Roses or I were not asked to play anywhere else such as Japan or Australia (as we are already in the regions on tour) and in which we have formally offered to perform but the offer of our involvement was declined."
