Guns N’ Roses Announce Mini-Tour
Guns N’ Roses will be heading out on a six date tour to small clubs in New York, Chicago, Maryland, and New Jersey as the band prepares to be inducted into the Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame in April.
Unfortunately, the Guns N’ Roses tour will only include one original member, Axl Rose.
Rose will, however, join his old bandmates in April when the original lineup is inducted into the Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame, but the band hasn’t decided if they’ll get back together to play one last time.
Drummer Steven Adler told Rolling Stone last month that he’d like to organize a reunion tour, or at the very least, play one farewell concert. Adler said:
“I personally just want to finish what I started with those jack-offs. We started off something, let’s end the career playing together, at least once. I’d love to do a whole tour of the world. I personally – and I know that Slash and Duff feel the same way – we owe it to the fans to do a tour around the world. We haven’t performed for over 20 years and they’ve stuck by us and believe in us.”
Rose said that he would consider playing with Slash and bassist Duff Mckagan, but he doesn’t see himself playing again with Izzy Stradlin or Adler. Rose said:
“I’ve got mixed emotions about what the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame actually really is, but at the same time, there’s a lot of people the fans that it just means something to them, and they’re happy. So I don’t want to take that away from them… The only thing that would make it would be Duff and Slash, really… It’s nothing against Izzy and it’s nothing against Steven, or anything like that. Steven may want it, but these guys I’m working with right now, they work really hard and it’s hard work. I’ve toured with the other guys and I’ve also seen what they’ve done since, and I just know the difficulties. So it’s not really even a full reunion.”
