AC/DC promoters fined over an Axl Rose fronted show

music news 23/03/2017

Spanish police have fined AC/DC promoters Live Nation for refusing to issue ticket refunds to fans who didn’t want to see Axl Rose fronting the band.

They're also telling those who are unhappy with Axl Rose fronting the band to take action, saying they have five years from the date of the show to reclaim their cash.

Last year Brian Johnson had to quit performing due to risk of permanent hearing loss.

The band hired Guns N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose to take his place which saw some negative feedback from fans but many people were happy to see Rose step in.

Live Nation assured fans in Spain that anyone not happy with the line up change that didn't want to attend the Seville show in May would get a refund. Although the company stopped eccepting applications three days later due to high demands.

Seville authorities have branded it a 'breach of commitment'. As a result Live Nation has been fined $15,000.

Live Nation told some people who applied, “We regret to inform you that we have stopped serving requests for reimbursement.” 

Last month Guns N' Roses were in New Zealand for their Not in this Lifetime Tour and put on an incredible show.
