If 2016 was a busy year for Guns N’Roses then get prepared for 2017 because LA’s finest have just announced a European tour for next summer. And if that wasn’t enough they will be playing a North American 2nd leg of their ‘Not in this Lifetime’ tour which includes, wait for it a show in St Louis!
Guns N’Roses has not played in St Louis with their reunited members, singer Axl Rose, guitarist Slash and bassist Duff Mckagan since their ill fated and now infamous ‘riot show’ on the ‘Use Your Illusion’ tour which occurred on July 2nd, 1991. On that night a furious Axl Rose dived into the crowd and grabbed a video camera from a spectator who was illegally filming the show. Axl returned to the stage blamed the security and said he was going home and slammed his microphone down. Whilst the intention was to come back on stage, a riot ensued causing millions of dollars worth of damage to the venue in Riverside, Missouri and also to the bands equipment.
Even earlier this year when the first leg of the tour was announced it seemed that the band did the ultimate troll by including a stop at St Louis on adverts, a show that never happened. But it seems after 26 years all is forgiven.
There is also the highly anticipated European tour, the first for the reunited band on European soil since July, 1993. The tour kicks off at Slane Castle in Dublin and will run for 19 dates over seven weeks.
