As previously reported, GUNS N’ ROSES is coming back to North America next summer for at least another 15 stadium dates, as the band continues its reunion tour. Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan, along with guitarist Richard Fortus, drummer Frank Ferrer and keyboardists Dizzy Reed and Melissa Reese will kick off the new North American run on July 27 in St. Louis, ending on September 8 in San Antonio.
The group has also mapped out a European jaunt that will begin on May 27 in Dublin, Ireland, ending on July 12 in the Netherlands. A July 15 show in Tel Aviv, Israel will also precede the North American leg.
GUNS N’ ROSES also has shows booked in Japan, New Zealand, Australia, Singapore, Thailand and United Arab Emirates between January and early March.
The band kicked off its reunion trek last April with a club show in Hollywood and appearances in Las Vegas and at California’s Coachella festival.
The first North American leg of the tour kicked off in late June and included 25 concerts, grossing a staggering $117 million.
