“Stadium Rock Is Back!”: Guns N’ Roses Announce 2021 Australia/New Zealand Tour
Guns N’ Roses’ touring itinerary next year is becoming even more packed, as the band have just announced yet more 2021 shows.
After (hopefully) returning to the UK and Europe in June and then trekking through the States in the summer, GN’R will go Down Under in November, taking on eight huge stadiums in Australia and New Zealand.
The band shared a tour poster stating that, “Stadium rock is back!” alongside a graphic of all five Appetite For Destruction skulls – though presumably the gigs will just feature the same group as their Not In This Lifetime… Tour, with ‘classic’ line-up members Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan.

The question of potential new material at these gigs still remains, too, as earlier this year Duff McKagan’s wife, Susan Holmes McKagan, teased: “I will say Guns N’ Roses have been working fastidiously on some killer new stuff.
“I can’t say much, but I’ve heard bits and bobs and it’s pretty epic,” she continued. “I do want to spread good news, but not detailed news, I guess. Hopefully that’ll put a spring in your step!”
