Guns N’ Roses Announce New Tour Dates
Duff McKagan is keeping busy this year. He’s just released a solo album, Tenderness, and is currently touring behind it. Now it appears he’ll be on the road this Fall with Guns N’ Roses, who just announced eight new U.S. shows as a continuation of their “Not in This Lifetime” tour.
“Guns N’ Roses is bringing their outrageously successful Not in This Lifetime Tour back to the U.S this fall – and for the first time in 2019,” the band stated. “With fans hungry for more GNR, today the band revealed eight new dates across the United States, kicking off Sept. 25 in Charlotte, N.C. The shows include two back-to-back nights on Friday, Nov. 1, and Saturday, Nov. 2, in Las Vegas at the legendary Colosseum at Caesars Palace, their most intimate venue since the 2017 performance at the Apollo Theater.”
The tour features most of the band’s classic lineup, namely McKagan, Axl Rose, and Slash. They’re currently working on new material for a new album, though it’s still in the early stages. McKagan told Eddie Trunk of Trunk Nation that the news is real.
“Oh, it’s real,” he said, “but the fun part and the cool part about Guns N’ Roses is we don’t really talk about it, and what happens next just happens. It’s never been that band that there’s a direct schedule of how we do things. I’ve heard some magnificent stuff that Axl has — really cool stuff he’s been working on. So I’m excited about the possibilities with that, of course. I don’t mean to get anybody rabid. Our day will happen when it happens, that’s for sure.”
