South Africa's biggest outdoor rock event of 2007 has been left without a major headlining act after Guns N' Roses pulled out of My Coke Fest due to an injury suffered by bassist Tommy Stinson. The group's planned appearances in Johannesburg on April 27 and Cape Town on May 1 were billed as the start of a world tour.

"Stinson recently sprained his left wrist in a fall and the injury has not yet healed. As a result, Guns N' Roses will not make their two scheduled performances at My Coke Fest in South Africa at the end of the month," reads a statement from promoter Big Concerts. Several others shows in Japan have been postponed indefinitely as well.

Organizers have promised a full refund for Guns N' Roses fans who no longer want to attend the events. My Coke Fest is the 2007 incarnation of last year's March Coca-Cola Collab Massive Mix, which was headlined by Metallica.

The 12-hour show is billed as South Africa's biggest rock event and is going ahead with international acts Hoobastank, Staind, 3 Doors Down and Evanescence. Local support includes the Springbok Nude Girls and the Parlotones.
