Orangutan Protection Organization Criticizes Guns N ‘Roses for concert

Guns N ‘Roses is being criticized by an animal protection group for a show they will perform in Malaysia in November. The group “Friends of the Orangutans” is asking for the position of the band about the noise of their performance. It turns out that the show will be on Lake Sunway, which is meters from the local zoo.


The group sent an email to the band’s aide, Fernando Lebeis, who says the following:

“Since most of the animals – not all – are behind the stage, has the show’s promoter asked for evidence from a wildlife expert to show that the show will have zero impact on the animals in the zoo? Are the animals unaware of the sound coming from the stage?”

You can see below an image that shows the distance between the presentation location and the zoo (via Louder Sound / Google Earth).

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
