Following the group’s 1985 formation, Guns N’ Roses injected unbridled, unrivaled, and unstoppable attitude into the burgeoning Los Angeles rock scene. The spirit went on to captivate the entire world with the release of their 1987 debut Appetite for Destruction –the best-selling U.S. debut ever, moving 30 million copies globally. In 1991, the seven-time platinum Use Your Illusion I and Use Your Illusion II occupied the top two spots of the Billboard Top 200 upon release. Over the course of the past decade, Guns N’ Roses have performed sold out shows and headlined festivals worldwide following the critically acclaimed release of 2008’s RIAA platinum-certified Chinese Democracy. Six studio albums later, Guns N’ Roses are one of the most important and influential acts in music history and continue to set the benchmark for live performances connecting with millions of fans across the globe.

  1. Eddie, can you please investigate why GNR originally announced St. Louis in their original list of cities, then leave it out of the final announcement. I know Axl has had his problems with this city in the past, but that was 25 years ago. What is the issue? I think it would be an interesting answer to know the truth.
    When you meet them in Vegas, please get the answer for us that were excited for the return after 25 years, only to be fooled.

  2. *All dates, cities and venues below subject to change. When it comes to GN’R, you can say that again! Be prepared for a LONG night, I know I’ll be prepared on July 29th, if they make it that far! 😉

  3. I plan on getting tickets for the Philadelphia show. I am not a fan of stadium shows. I’d much rather an arena. I saw Metallica at The Linc years ago, and it’s just too big. That being said, I can’t miss this.

  4. Interesting that there isn’t a conflict with any of the remaining AC/DC dates. Not saying that it means anything, but if you are a conspiracy nut, it works out.
