According to the Mexican edition of Rolling Stone magazine, GUNS N’ ROSES will play at the Palacio de los Deportes in Mexico City on October 18.
Ticket pre-sale starts on July 26, with a general sale starting on July 28.
GUNS N’ ROSES’ South American tour will include stops at the Rock In Rio festival in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil on October 2, at Movistar Arena in Santiago, Chile on October 5 and at Estadio Único de La Plata in La Plata, Argentina on October 8. “They will confirm their Peru date shorty,” the Paraguayan media reported.
In addition to sole original member Axl Rose (vocals), the current lineup of GUNS N’ ROSES includes guitarists Ron Thal, Richard Fortus and DJ Ashba, bassist Tommy Stinson, keyboardists Dizzy Reed and Chris Pitman and drummer Frank Ferrer.
As previously reported, “Chinese Democracy”, the 2008 album released by the current edition of GUNS N’ ROSES after a 15-year wait, can now be purchased at BestBuy.com for $1.99.
Best Buy was the exclusive U.S. retailer for “Chinese Democracy”, reportedly paying $14 million for 1.6 million copies. But the album was a major sales disappointment, moving less than 630,000 copies despite the curiosity and hype surrounding its release.
