GUNS N’ ROSES ANNOUNCE FIRST TOUR DATES OF 2014
(Ultimate Classic Rock) – After a few months’ vacation, Guns N’ Roses are getting ready to hit the road again. The band announced a three-week tour of Latin America to mark their first shows in 2014. The full list of dates are below.
The band will begin on March 16 in Mexico City, where they will headline the second night of the Hell & Heaven Metal Festival. From there, they will play seven dates all over Brazil, beginning March 20 in Rio de Janeiro, before heading to Buenos Aires, Argentina on April 6 and closing it out three days later in Asuncion, Paraguay.
Back in November, guitarist Ron “Bumblefoot” Thai expressed frustration at Guns N’ Roses habit of waiting until the last possible moment to book tours, some of which never materialize. He said that it has affected his own solo career, because canceling his own tours to return to Guns N’ Roses duty comes at the expense of his own reputation. Bumblefoot added that “if I do have to choose…and if [the band's management] are not willing to help me keep the two functioning well together, then I’m out.”
As of now, no U.S. dates have been announced.
