GNR Tour Dates 2/4/20

The Guns N’ Roses machine keeps chugging along. The reunited band has announced a run of North American stadium dates this summer, starting on July 4th at Milwaukee’s Summerfest and ending on August 26th in Missoula, Montana.

The Guns reunion tour began nearly four years ago and guitarist Slash told us that the band never expected the response it got: [“The reaction to it all down the line was something that we didn’t really know what to expect, and when it happened, it was like, ‘wow.’ The fan reaction and the way that went across the board was overwhelming. It was really pretty magical, you know, all around.”] SOUNDCUE (:13 OC: . . . know, all around.)

The Los Angeles-based band will also be the first rock act to play its hometown’s new SoFi Stadium after it opens this July. The first performer to play the venue — the new home of the Los Angeles Rams — will be pop star Taylor Swift.

Ticket pre-sales are in progress now, with tickets going on sale to the general public starting Friday (February 7th) at noon local time at LiveNation.com.
