Guns N’ Roses announce 8 new US Tour Dates

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Monday, June 17, 2019 at 7:08 AM (PST)

GNR have announced new tour dates Stateside for Not In This Lifetime. I am real tempted to sell a leg and get to the Florida date somehow so I can croon along to “Sorry” and “Civil War”, as I have still never gotten to see the band live. Anyhow, new music is also rumored to be on the way and I hope it is in a classic/ hard rock vein like some of the stronger Chinese tracks such as “I.R.S.”, “Street Of Dreams” and “Chinese Democracy” more than the more experimental stuff. I am sure it is gonna have more bite anyway with the current line-up of OG legends and tour tested newer members who slugged it out and earned their keep.

Pre-sale for the new dates starts on June 18 at 10 a.m. local time, with V.I.P. packages available then. General sale begins on June 21 at 10 a.m. local time.
Newly announced tour dates:
Sep. 25 – Charlotte, NC @ Spectrum Center
Oct. 01 – Jacksonville, FL @ Vystar Veterans Memorial Arena
Oct. 07 – Wichita, KS @ Intrust Bank Arena
Oct. 15 – Lincoln, NE @ Pinnacle Bank Arena
Oct. 23 – Oklahoma City, OK @ Chesapeake Energey Arena
Oct. 29 – Salt Lake City, UT @ Vivint Smart Home Arena
Dec. 01 – Las Vegas, NV @ Collosseum at Ceasars Palace
Dec. 02 – Las Vegas, NV @ Collosseum at Ceasars Palace

In addition to the above-mentioned shows, GUNS N’ ROSES will make four U.S. festival appearances this fall — Louder Than Life, Austin City Limits, Exit 111 and Voodoo Music + Arts Experience.

Axl and Slash to reunite for Coachella

Earlier this year there were rumors that the original Guns N’ Roses line-up might be getting back together.

Turns out as of the most recent news, the reunion only includes Axl and Slash (Update: Duff as well, more TBA), playing Coachella in California from April 15-17 and April 22-24 with the ‘possibility’ of a stadium tour.

The tour could run as many as 25 dates in North America this summer.

There’s word that GNR has material in production. It took fifteen years between The Spaghetti Incident and Chinese Democracy, and there’s no indication of whether or not Slash or anyone else from the original line-up will be on that next album.

If you can afford to go to Coachella or can afford $200 bucks for a stadium-show, you’ll get to see Slash and Axl back together again.

Slash and Axl pals again? This is good news.

So I saw my buddy Tigman from 101.5 WPDH Poughkeepsie post on Facebook a Blabbermouth piece you should all see HERE.

I’m a die hard gunners fan (half of the new songs on my band GET OUT.’s pending hard rock/metal full length debut have high and low octave double tracked Axl influenced Appetite type vocal tricks utilized in the choruses). I also feel SLASH is one of the most entertaining books on rock n roll EVER written (along with Lemmy’s White Line Fever), just mandatory. And with all due respect to Myles Kennedy and Slash’s solo band or the recently departed from the Nu-Guns camp guys like Bumblefoot and Ashba, seeing Slash and Axl again someday would be amazing.

I’m not an Axl hater though I also understand why fans hate he is late for shows and wonder why for awhile there was a guy with a KFC bucket playing guitar. There was a reason why Against Me! classic Reinventing Axl Rose existed, but you also gotta remember that Axl EARNED his hubris. Dude went from a fucked up childhood to conquering the world… and I think it’s cool he stood up to the Hall of Fame and public pressure at the time for the Appetite line up to perform. While that would’ve been awesome and I understand why Adler was so disappointed, it also made sense in other ways for Rose to say “Hey, this is my band now.”  On the plus side, it appears Axl and Slash are friendly again.

I personally am bummed we didn’t get another record with Ashba but am thrilled Fortus and (honestly my fave Guns drummer besides Sorum) Frank Ferrer remain, as they play in The Compulsions (one of the best rock bands going) as well and just kick ass/have talent and vibe/class. I’d love to see Duff, Slash and the current line up meld or rotate Tommy Stinson and Duff or whatever like they have been doing. Maybe all of that is speculation but it’d be a cool way to bridge the old school and new school gap as older fans strictly hating on the Chinese Democracy-era band means missing out on some killer newer tunes like “I.R.S.” and one of Axl’s best ever songs “Street Of Dreams”. Even Slash said it was a good record when it came out.

Crack open some Night Train.

DJ Ashba exits Guns N’ Roses

Guns n Roses newest ex member is DJ Ashba. I for one am a big fan of the guy and despite his hat that everyone hated I think it’s really unfair to call him a Slash clone if you look at the dude’s whole career. Ashba wrote a long, heartfelt letter announcing his departure from Guns which you can read HERE.

While bassist Tommy Stinson stepped aside for 5 shows for some reunion gigs with former band The Replacements., Guns N Roses got a well known fill in.

Filling in for Tommy was none other than original bassist Duff, beginning on April 6 in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and staying on for the remainder of the South American tour, including shows in Asuncion, Paraguay on April 9, La Paz, Bolivia on April 12, Recife, Brazil on April 15 and Fortaleza, Brazil on April 17.

Duff’s return saw many highlights, including the return of “Raw Power” and “Attitude” from The Spaghetti Incident  to the setlist, as well as opening with “You Could Be Mine” in Bolivia!  Click HERE for a video of “Live And Let Die” with Duff and more thoughts on GNR. This rules.

Nirvana : 20 years since the lights went out

Seriously…just watch this concert. Besides (ironically) Guns N Roses at the Freddie Mercury tribute concert, this is still my favorite live concert. I must have watched a bootleg VHS of this hundreds of times growing up and “Scentless Apprentice” is still the most monstrous squall to make a dent in the larger pop culture’s ever shifting bullshit hive mind. His lyrics were deeper and more poetic than much of what has come since, from “Been A Son” to the bizarre “Milk It”. And have you heard “Hairspray Queen” recently? Talk about anarchic sounds! There will never be another Nirvana…and that kinda sucks.

Man allegedly kills woman while singing Guns N’ Roses song

Posted by SeanB on Tuesday, November 27, 2012 at 8:43 AM (PST)

We really should have all seen this coming.  Although it’s a bit late as far as the year goes and a little surprising that it happened in California and not northern New England or down south, reportedly a man has killed his onetime girlfriend while singing along to the lyrics of the Guns N’ Roses song “Used To Love Her.”  Again, should have seen it coming.

Click here to see a video of said song.

So, a 48 year old man by the name of Thomas Michael Wilhelm allegedly drank a bunch of pills down with some vodka, stole his neighbors handgun (by the way, what kind of asshole doesn’t keep his guns locked up???) and shot his ex.  Reportedly the two had dated before and were now business partners.  Although this is obviously tragic and no one deserves to die, one has to wonder, what did she do to make this dude go Syd Barrett shit crazy on her and sing a fucking GNR song while killing her?

Rivals Sons confirm shows with Guns N’ Roses

Posted by XxCrashQueenxX on Wednesday, May 16, 2012 at 12:26 PM (PST)

Rivals Sons have confirmed that they will be the main support act for Guns N’ Roses for two shows in Europe this coming summer.

The band will be opening for Guns N’ Roses on June 4th at Ahoy in Rotterdam, Netherlands, and then at the Warsteiner Hockey Park in Mönchengladbach, Germany on June 8th.

Rival Sons guitarist Scott Holiday had these comments to make:

“What a great, great opportunity to get these shows supporting Guns N’ Roses! Germany has been great to us, and this will only help us reach out to so many more people over there. As far as Guns goes… I remember the first time those guys were ever on MTV, me and my best mate were watching. A total shock to the system, and to me and my friends’ lives. We were really young little dudes, but we already loved our rock ‘n’ roll, and Guns just reeked of reality and grit… I mean they were literally very dirty. And we LOVED it. They ushered in a lot more ‘real’ and dirtiness to a scene that had become way too fruity-pants. As a wee guitar-playing lad, I couldn’t get enough of Appetite For Destruction and Lies. Ready to see and hear some of those first tunes played live!”

Axl Rose says no to Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction; still hates Slash too

Posted by SeanB on Thursday, April 12, 2012 at 9:55 AM (PST)

To absolutely no one’s surprise, Axl Rose has asked the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame not to include him in its recent nomination of Guns N’ Roses and has refused to show up even if they do.  He’s released a pretty lengthy statement about the whole ordeal where he specifically mentions all the other members of the band…except for Slash.

The funny thing is, the Hall of Fame doesn’t seem to care.  They released their own statement saying:

“We are sorry he will not be able to accept his induction in person.”

It looks like the April 14, 2012 ceremony is going down with or without him.  To read Axl’s statement in full, click here.

Guns N’ Roses Frontman Axl Rose Court Date Set

Posted by jillettinger on Thursday, March 10, 2011 at 1:53 PM (PST)

Axl Rose, the last original member and frontman of 80’s metal legends, Guns N’ Roses, will have his day in court in early 2012.

The $20 million lawsuit comes as a result of the misuse of the classic Guns N’ Roses song, “Welcome to the Jungle” in the video game “Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock” put out by Activision Blizzard, Inc. Rose claims he was misled by Activision, who he says persuaded him to authorize use of the track and then lied and hid information about their intention to feature Slash, the former guitarist for GN’R, who Rose did not want connected with the band in the game.

Rose also alleges that the GN’R track, “Sweet Child O’ Mine” was used in a promotion for Guitar Hero III, although it was only licensed for Guitar Hero II.

The trial is scheduled for January 23rd.
