Guns N' Roses are expanding their Not in This Lifetime tour in 2017. The reunited rockers will play Europe before returning stateside in July for 16 North American shows.
The first stop on the 2017 North American leg is a July 27th gig in St. Louis, Missouri, where the band's infamous "Riverport Riot" occurred in July 1991. During the show, Axl Rose attacked a photographer in the audience, blaming security for not confiscating the person's camera and then walking offstage. A riot ensued, injuring dozens of fans. GN'R was banned from playing St. Louis and Rose was charged with four counts of misdemeanor assault and one count of property damage and fined $50,000.
The 2017 St. Louis show will be GN'R's first in the city since then. When the initial batch of Not in This Lifetime dates were announced in 2015, St. Louis was not included.
The six-week-long tour will then travel from Minnesota to Miami to George, Washington to El Paso, Texas with six Canadian shows in between, before ending, for now, with a September 8th performance at San Antonio's Alamodome.
The latest itinerary does not include any summer music festivals. The public sale for the latest batch of Not in This Lifetime tour begins December 9th, while Nighttrain members can score tickets starting today. Check out the GN'R website for full ticket information.
