Guns N’ Roses Confirm Reunion Tour But No Dates Released Yet

It is official ─ Guns N’ Roses confirmed that they will be touring North America, but fans are left guessing on just when to wait at the ticket office. It is also not final on which band members will be gracing the stage by the time the reunion tour hits the road.

The band released a video on March 25 that announced the 21-city tour, as reported on Rolling Stone. The video listed the cities only, but not the venues the band will play in. The exact dates have not been released yet, except that the tour will happen this coming summer.

The announcement video, released on the official Guns N’ Roses website, starts out with a wide shot of an audience, with the classic hit “Patience” playing in the background. The band’s logo appears briefly on screen before “Coming Summer 2016” header appears. The list of the cities the band is playing is the last shot before the video ends.

In 1990, Steven Adler was fired twice from the band due to his constant drug use while recording the double album, Use Your Illusion I and II. He was eventually replaced by Matt Sorum.

In July 1991, rhythm guitarist Izzy Stradlin decided to quit the band, having grown tired of his fellow members’ bad attitudes and habits after he became clean and sober. Guns N’ Roses replaced Stradlin with Gilby Clarke while they completed their Use Your Illusion tour for the rest of the year.

Lead guitarist Slash quit the band in October 1996 due to clashing with lead singer Axl Rose. Duff McKagan was the other original member to leave, resigning in August 1997.
