Guns N’ Roses Concert News and Tickets

August 18, 2006

Check out Gun N’ Roses Tickets here.

Comeback rockers Guns N’ Roses are beginning to commit to their long-promised US tour plans, with a pair of two-night stands now on the books for Las Vegas and San Francisco.

The Las Vegas dates are set for Sept. 16 and 17 at the Hard Rock Hotel, while the San Francisco shows are booked for Sept. 20 and 21 at The Warfield.

More dates are expected to surface in the coming days.

Guns N’ Roses recently wrapped up a European tour that was fairly uneventful by frontman Axl Rose’s standards. However, Rose was arrested following his band’s Stockholm, Sweden, stop for allegedly scuffling with a security guard and busting up a hotel lobby; the singer also fell ill near the end of the European tour’s final show at London’s Wembley Arena. (Former Skid Row vocalist Sebastian Bach took over to finish out the set.)

GN’R’s most recent major US tour was in 2002. That troubled outing was cut short with more than a dozen shows remaining on its schedule, after Rose failed to show up for two gigs.

Rose is the only remaining original member of Guns N’ Roses. The group is currently rounded out by keyboardist Dizzy Reed, bassist Tommy Stinson, keyboardist Chris Pitman, drummer Brian “Brain” Mantia, and guitarists Robin Finck, Richard Fortus and Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal.

The band has been working the road in advance of its supposedly soon-to-be-released album, “Chinese Democracy.” The disc, which has been in the pipeline for about a decade, and the release of which has been delayed repeatedly over the years, will be the group’s first collection of original material since the early ’90s. No specific release date has been announced.

Inland Invasion Concert News and Tickets

August 17, 2006

Check out Inland Invasion Tickets and Guns & Roses Tickets here.

Los Angeles radio station KROQ has recruited some of rock’s heaviest hitters to anchor its sixth annual Inland Invasion festival.

On Monday evening, the station revealed that Avenged Sevenfold — fresh from their mainstage stint on this summer’s Ozzfest (which wrapped Sunday in West Palm Beach, Florida) — and Alice in Chains were among the artists opening for Guns N’ Roses at the end-of-summer event.

The Inland Invasion is set to take over Devore, California’s Hyundai Pavilion at Glen Helen on September 23.

Invasion organizers have mined rockers Papa Roach, Muse, 30 Seconds to Mars, Rise Against, Atreyu and Buckcherry to round out the bill.

Axl Rose’s Guns recently wrapped a run of European festival shows, following a string of sold-out gigs at New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom in May — the band’s first American gigs in more than three years, after their 2002 comeback tour sputtered to a halt.

The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas will play host to Guns N’ Roses for two shows at the Joint, scheduled for September 16 and September 17. Tickets for those dates will go on sale August 19. Earlier this month, via a press release, Rose said that he plans to return to the road this fall for another round of U.S. touring.

Alice in Chains, who’ve been touring with Comes With the Fall singer William DuVall filling in for late frontman Layne Staley, hit the road back in May for a successful run of five club dates. The band unveiled plans last week for a total of 40 gigs this fall throughout the U.S., with one date in Canada. That trek gets underway September 22 in Las Vegas and runs through November 26 in San Francisco, with additional dates expected to be added over the next few weeks.

In addition to the Inland Invasion, Avenged Sevenfold have booked nine North American dates for September, with three gigs in the U.S. — September 7 in Anchorage, Alaska; September 13 in Fargo, North Dakota; and September 15 in Des Moines, Iowa — and the remainder scheduled for Canada.

Guns N’ Roses to Play New York

April 15, 2006

Check out Gun N’ Roses Tickets here.

When Axl Rose told Rolling Stone in January that he’d have new music for Guns N’ Roses fans this year, he wasn’t kidding. After a decade of working on Chinese Democracy, the follow-up to 1993’s platinum-selling The Spaghetti Incident, and three years away from American stages, GN’R are ready to play New York next month. Tickets for May 15th and 17th at the Hammerstein Ballroom, go on sale April 21st.

While there’s no definite word as to what music Axl and his current GN’R lineup will play live, the notoriously reclusive rocker told Rolling Stone of his new songs, “I’m trying to do something different. Some people are going to say, ‘It doesn’t sound like Axl Rose, it doesn’t sound like Guns N’ Roses.'”

Thirty-two songs — including the Axl faves “Better,” “There Was a Time” and “The Blues” — are in the works for the new album, to be narrowed down to thirteen. Versions of “Better” and “There Was a Time” were among the tracks leaked online — and, briefly, to radio — in February.

After these two U.S. dates, GN’R are also slated to play a string of dates in Europe, starting May 27th in Lisbon, Portugal.

An official release date for the now-mythical Chinese Democracy has yet to be announced.
