The eleven man Rock-N-Roll Allstars, a star-studded touring group featuring Gene Simmons from Kiss, has officially canceled all but one of its remaining tour dates. The band, including founding Skid Row singer Sebastian BachGuns N’ Roses alumni Duff McKagan, Matt Sorum and Gilby Clarke, as well as current and former members of  Def Leppard, Deep Purple, Alice in Chains and The Cult performed concerts in Paraguay and Argentina earlier this month.  More dates were scheduled this spring throughout Central and South America.

The group made the announcement on its Rock-N-Roll Allstars Facebook page but did not give a reason for the cancelation.

The group issued this statement:

“Rock-N-Roll Allstars regret to inform our fans that the shows we had scheduled in Ecuador, Colombia, Costa Rica, Panama, Guatemala and Venezuela have been cancelled. An incredible effort was made to work with local promoters to bring our show to the fans but they made it impossible for us to do so. We are saddened that we will not be coming to Central America and will do everything possible to ensure that our fans receive refunds for all tickets purchased. We are in South America and just had amazing shows in Paraguay and Argentina where thousands of fans came to hear the hits of Guns N’ Roses, Kiss, Def Leppard and more. The show in Lima, Peru is still on sale and the band is still playing this show. Thank you for your support and we hope to see each and every one of you soon.”

Their only remaining date scheduled is this Friday, April 27 in Lima, Peru.
