|Guns N' Roses has begun rescheduling the summer European tour canceled due to health concerns relating to guitarist Buckethead. Merck Mercuriadis of Sanctuary Music Management tells Billboard.com that Buckethead has been
diagnosed as having a gastric ailment by one doctor and tuberculosis by another, and that the shows will not resume until the winter to allow Buckethead adequate time to recover.
The trek was set to begin June 1 at the Rock Im Park festival in Nuremberg, Germany. As for Guns N' Roses' eternally delayed new Interscope/Geffen/A&M album, Mercuriadis said there was no update as to when the set may see the
light of day.
