Guns N’ Roses has just rolled out an eight-city tour of Down Under set for November 2021. The Australian and New Zealand dates follow the band’s already-booked European leg for the spring, and a North American stadium run next summer.

Tour promoter Paul Dainty was quoted by Loudersond.com as saying, “We’re not doing this lightly. There was a lot of consideration before we pulled the trigger. I’ve been doing this a long time. We wouldn’t be proceeding if we weren’t 100 per cent confident. There’s a lot of good news around with the vaccine and the like and we wanted to be optimistic and on the front foot.”

Fans are still eagerly awaiting the first new music from co-founders Axl RoseSlash, and Duff McKagan since 1993. Slash told us that the band had yet to begin writing in earnest: [“There’s, y’know, bits and pieces of things and whatnot, but I mean, to really focus on it in earnest as this group that just got together a couple of years ago, we haven’t really done that much with it yet.”] SOUNDCUE (:12 OC: . . . with it yet)
