Tracii Guns opted to play a recent L.A. Guns show in Plano, Texas from a backstage bathroom after his panic disorder was triggered by the summer heat.

Explaining the move in a Facebook post prior to the show on Thursday (June 23), the guitarist wrote: “A lot of people know I have a panic disorder. While I have it 95 percent under control, heat is the remaining trigger and I simply cannot play in the heat. But we have found a solution for today’s show: I will be playing in a comfy bathroom directly behind the stage where there is air conditioning.”
