Guns n' Roses have revealed plans to bring Chinese Democracy to North America... with a tour of Canada. Last week, various Canadian Websites including GEG.ca teased a huge announcement concerning Gn'R touring the Great White North. Today, a 13-date Canadian trek that starts January 13th in Winnipeg, Manitoba, and stretches across our neighbor to the North until February 4th in Halifax, Nova Scotia, was posted on Brave Words. Rolling Stone has received an official press release that proclaims the dates are part of "Guns n' Roses Chinese Democracy World Tour" and can now confirm the dates are official.
Some of the dates are posted on Live Nation's Website and others appear on Ticketmaster.ca's site. The earliest presale begins October 21st. General admission floor seats and reserved seats in the stands are available; prices range from $49.50 to $89.50 Canadian before service charges.
As Rolling Stone previously reported, Rose and company appear to be plotting a tour of Southeast Asia starting December 11th in Taiwan. According to Brave Words, more dates for the Gn'R world tour are expected, and the band is set to begin rehearsing in Los Angeles soon.
