Rock band Guns N’ Roses join others in mourning for the victims of the ill-fated flight LMI-2933 which crashed. One of the band’s hit song “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door” sum up their tribute especially for members of the Chapecoense soccer team.
Guns N’ Roses posted on Twitter a 30-second video showing the logo embedding the clubs’ logo with clouds as background. The iconic Bob Dylan song simply showed the band’s solidarity with the families, relatives, and friends in the tragic accident. A total of 19 members of the soccer team died in the plane crash including 57 others.
Cause of accident
Reports stated that engine failure caused the accident. This was triggered by an electric fault on the plane’s engine system. The system failure caused the plane to run low on fuel. But pilot Miguel ‘Micky’ Quiroga still managed to prevent the plane turning into a deadly fireball. Six survivors were found in the wreckage with one victim later dying in the hospital Medellin.
The soccer team was to play a match against their Colombian counterparts when the tragic accident happened. Learning of the fate of the Chapecoense players, tributes from the soccer world poured out with landmarks lit with green lights.
Guns N’ Roses led by frontman Axl Rose recently toured Latin America as part of their “Not in this Lifetime Tour.” They performed in Brazil, Colombia, Argentina, Chile, and Peru.
Fans of Chapecoense appreciated Guns N’ Roses touching tribute showing their support to those who lost their loved ones. Guns N’ Roses just finished their Latin American tour and will hit the road again next year. The band will hold shows in Japan, New Zealand, Australia, Singapore, Thailand, and Dubai.
