Guns N’ Roses Announce New U.S. Tour Dates
It looks like Guns N’ Roses’ massive reunion is going to continue for a while longer. Not only has Slash announced that the band has begun working on new material, but now the band have revealed another handful of U.S. tour dates on their Not In This Lifetime trek. This must have been the small tour in October that Slash spoke about earlier this year.
The shows begin in late September, and go on into November. Whether or not the run can truly be called an actual tour is a little iffy, as there isn’t a real continuous string of dates here so much as a bunch of interspersed concerts throughout the states. The band are mainly focusing on less massive markets this time around — minus the two shows in Vegas — but given how disparate the tour list is so far, don’t be surprised if more shows are added in between the current ones.
Catch GN’R at one of the shows below:
25 Charlotte, NC @ Spectrum Center
01 Jacksonville, FL @ Vystar Veterans Memorial Arena
07 Wichita, KS @ Intrust Bank Arena
15 Lincoln, NE @ Pinnacle Bank Arena
23 Oklahoma City, OK @ Chesapeake Energey Arena
29 Salt Lake City, UT @ Vivint Smart Home Arena
01 Las Vegas, NV @ Collosseum at Ceasars Palace
02 Las Vegas, NV @ Collosseum at Ceasars Palace
Discussing the possibility of a new Guns N’ Roses album, Slash said, “The thing is, we haven’t really done anything yet, and I don’t like to say anything. You know how people used to promote shit and lie through their teeth? So I just wanted to be honest about it, and so there was really no telling what we were gonna do at that point.
“But at this point, I do know that we are gonna do this run [of autumn gigs],” continued the guitarist, “and we’ve already started working on stuff. So, there you go.”
That said, Slash has also said, “I’ve heard some magnificent stuff that Axl [Rose] has – really cool stuff he’s been working on.” So keep your ears peeled.
