The band return to the UK for the first time in over two decades.
The recently reformed GUNS N' ROSES have announced a bunch of new dates for their Not In This Lifetime tour next year, with the event spanning North America, Europe and Asia. They have been on the road a lot already this year, playing throughout North and South America and singer Axl Rose breaking off for a spell to front AC/DC on their tour.
Guns N' Roses embark on a worldwide tour
The tour includes their first appearance in the UK since 1993 and it also looks like they'll be in Europe and unoccupied on June 25th; that's the last day of Glastonbury Festival for those who didn't spot it straight away. Could they be the Sunday night headliners? It would certainly make sense after their stellar set at Coachella back in April.
Dates will kick off at the Kyocera Dome in Osaka, Japan on January 21st 2017, and will see them perform across Europe, as well as Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Thailand and Israel. The North American leg of the tour will begin in St. Louis, Missouri on July 27th with the final date announced for the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas on September 8th.
On June 16th, Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan will visit the London Stadium - also known as the Olympic Stadium - making their faces shown in the UK for the first time in 24 years. Their last show took place during their Use You Illusion tour; an event famous for the multitude of problems that arose throughout those 28 dates. They'll also play at Slane Castle in Dublin for the second time, having first performed their 25 years ago. Though Axl Rose was extraordinarily late for the show, it was still a memorable one according to venue owner Lord Henry Mountcharles.
Tickets for the 2017 Europe and US dates will go on sale between December 9th and December 10th 2016.
