Guns N' Roses confirm more fall tour details
The Guns N' Roses camp has announced some additional details about the band's upcoming U.S. tour, revealing 11 more cities the band plans to visit on the trek.
With the addition of the new cities -- Atlanta; Omaha, NE; Tulsa, OK; Wilkes-Barre, PA; Worcester, MA; Camden, NJ; Detroit; Cincinnati; Nashville; Indianapolis; and Denver -- there are now 19 stops planned. Specific dates and venues for many cities haven't been revealed; more dates will be announced, according to a press release.
The U.S. tour -- the band's first since 2006 -- will follow nearly a month of dates in South America and Mexico, staring with Brazil's Rock in Rio festival on Oct 2.
Rose is the sole original member of the band; the current lineup is rounded out by hired hands Tommy Stinson (bass), Bumblefoot (guitar), Dizzy Reed (keyboards), Dj Ashba (guitar), Richard Fortus (guitar), Frank Ferrer (drums) and Chris Pitman (keyboards).
In a recent interview with SoundSpike, Stinson said there's no follow-up to the latest Guns N' Roses album, 2008's much-delayed "Chinese Democracy," in the pipeline, adding that there was some leftover material from the "Chinese Democracy" sessions that haven't seen the light of day.
"We haven't recorded in a while and I don't see us doing so in the near future; we have those upcoming dates," Stinson said.
