Live Nation and Tickermaster’s Canadian website are promoting the latest leg of Guns N’ Roses’ Not In This Lifetime tour as the band’s last. The advertisement states: ‘The Not In This Lifetime Tour is coming! Don’t miss out on their legendary last tour.’
See the advertisement below, followed by a previous retirement rumor. Note that Guns N’ Roses themselves have given no indication that they plan on retiring, with guitarist Richard Fortus even recently discussing the possibility of a new album.
Radar Online reported in May 2014 that Guns N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose was considering retirement, “Band members have been told their calendars are free following Vegas,” a source close to the band tells RadarOnline. “Axl (Rose) is considering retiring and it’s done. Band members and support staff were surprised when told the news and are actively looking for work.”
“Axl has made enough money and wants to stop touring,” adds another source. “He is considering retiring.”
A source close to the band emphatically denied the rumor at the time, telling Ultimate Classic Rock that “there is no truth whatsoever to this report.”
A year and a half later Rose reunited with Slash and Duff McKagan.
