Guns N' Roses Announce February Club Shows


GUNS N' ROSES have surprised fans - pleasantly, for once - by announcing a mini-club tour of New York next month, the 'Welcome To The Jungle' rockers are playing the city three times to make up for the fact that they swerved the Big Apple entirely during their huge 2011 US tour. The dates make up a tour that'll take in six gigs in total, with similar-sized dates announced for Chicago, Atlantic City and Silver Springs, Maryland.
As front man of GUNS N' ROSES, Axl Rose hasn't exactly decorated himself in glory over the past couple of years despite an increased work load live that's included several tours to Europe and around the world. With key members of the band, including Duff Mckagan and Slash, not involved, the whole 'Roses schtick has had somewhat of a farcical air to it with many claiming they barely deserve to even remain owners of the moniker. Despite the eventual release of 'Chinese Democracy' in 2008, 15 years after its predecessor 'The Spaghetti Incident,' Rose has found it tough to fend off these critics and he'll come under even more pressure with the news that the band are to be inducted into the Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame alongside the likes of the Red Hot Chili Peppers and THE FACES.
It's unclear whether the original members of 'Roses will reunite for the event, though at least one former member seems keen on it, drummer STEVE ADLER saying last month "We started off something, let's end the career playing together, at least once. I'd love to do a whole tour of the world. I personally - and I know that Slash and Duff feel the same way - we owe it to the fans to do a tour around the world. We haven't performed for over 20 years and they've stuck by us and believe in us." Time will tell if he's telling the truth.
