Guns N’ Roses Barred From Playing Past Curfew at Gillette Stadium Shows
Guns N’ Roses have a storied history of going on hours late, enraging fans in the process, but the band is now facing a demand to end its show early!
GN’R is set to perform at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass. on July 19 and 20. The massive stadium will be packed with fans, but since the shows will take place on weeknights, an 11:15PM curfew is in place. Why? According to Foxborough Selectwoman Ginny Coppola, it’s because of noise issues.
"This is on a Tuesday and a Wednesday," Coppola told the Sun Chronicle. "If this was a weekend, I wouldn't have a problem with it. But it's a work night. This isn't going to be an acoustic evening. It's going to be loud."
Gillette Stadium management has actually pushed for Guns N’ Roses to perform until 11:40PM, citing there has been no significant behavioral or public safety issues with GN’R’s previous 2016 tour stops. However, the Foxborough Board of Selectmen shot down the 11:40PM end time and even a 11:30PM end time.
Lenny Kravitz will open for Guns N’ Roses on both Gillette Stadium gigs.
