Guns N' Roses have announced more cities for their upcoming U.S. tour. Only seven of the 21 shows have announced venues and dates at this point, but they appear to have at least put the shows in order – so it's not that hard to figure out roughly when they're coming to town. The U.S. tour kicks off October 28th in Orlando, Florida and ends up in Denver (probably sometime in mid-December), though a press release promises that more "dates, cites and venue information" will be announced soon.
It's also pretty easy to determine what venue they'll hit with the information they have provided. When they come to East Rutherford, New Jersey, it's far more likely they'll hit the Izod Center than the New Meadowlands Stadium or the harness racing track. The same goes for Worcester, Massachusetts. They might play at the parking lot of a Burger King, but more likely it's the DCU Center.
If these Guns N' Roses gigs are anything like their shows throughout the past decade, expect lots of songs from Appetite For Destruction and Chinese Democracy and relatively few from the Use Your Illusion albums. Also, expect the band to take the stage comically late with no one onstage named Slash, Duff or Izzy. You will get a Bumblefoot, a Dizzy and a former member of the Replacements, though.
Here's the current tour itinerary.:
10/28 Orlando, FL @ Amway Center Arena
10/29 Miami, FL @ American Airlines Arena
10/31 Greenville, SC @ Bi-Lo Center Arena
11/2 Atlanta, GA @ Phillips Arena
11/5 Dallas, TX @ Gexa Energy Pavillion
11/12 Kansas City, MO @ Sprint Center Arena
11/13 Minneapolis, MN @ Target Center Arena
Chicago, IL @ All State Arena
East Rutherford, NJ
