GNR Face Protest From Friends Of The Orangutans


Guns N’ Roses kicked off their stellar career with the breakthrough rock classic, “Welcome To The Jungle”. However, it now seems that the iconic band may be a little too loud for those that actually come from the jungle.

The rockers are due to play Sunway Lagoon in Chow Kit, Malaysia on November 14th. That’s as part of their Not In This Lifetime reunion tour with Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan. Now, a group have raised concerns that the venue is too close to a nearby zoo.

According to Classic Rock, director of Friends Of The Orangutans’, Upreshpal Singh emailed the band’s manager saying, “Though most animals – not all – are behind the stage, has the promoter of the show provided evidence from an independent wildlife expert to prove that the show will have zero impact on all of the zoo animals? Will all the animals be completely oblivious to sounds coming from the speakers?”

Singh also made a suggestion that the show is moved to another location. The email reads, “Metallica performed in Kuala Lumpur, reportedly before 30,000 fans in 2013 at a different venue, only about 16km away from Sunway Lagoon theme park.”
