Guns N’ Roses Announce Japan and Australia 2017 Tour
Yesterday (Aug. 15), we reported that it looked like Guns N' Roses would be bringing the "Not in This Lifetime..." tour to Australia in early 2017. Today, they made it official, and also revealed three shows in Japan.
"Australia!" began a post on their Facebook page. "#GnFnR are heading down under in 2017 with the #NotInThisLifetime Tour! #GNROz." After that came dates in five cities spread out over two weeks, beginning at the QSAC Stadium in Brisbane on Feb. 7 and ending at the Domain Stadium in Perth on Feb. 21. The date that had been rumored -- Feb. 14 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, has been confirmed.
Before they go down under, however, they will perform at the Kyocera Dome in Osaka, Japan on Jan. 21. Then, they are booked for two nights at the Saitama Super Arena in Tokyo on Jan. 28-9. The itinerary for both countries can be found below.
Pre-sale for the Japan shows begins tomorrow (Aug. 17) for members of their Nightrain fan club at noon, and will go on sale to the general public on Sept. 25. The Australian leg will have its pre-sale -- for both Nightrain mambers and VIP packages -- on Aug. 19, with the public sale taking place on Aug. 26. For complete information, visit the Tour section of Guns N' Roses' website.
Guns N' Roses have only a couple of stops left on the North American leg of the tour, their first with Slash and Duff McKagan since 1993. Thursday (Aug. 18) will see the first of two nights at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, and they will close it out Monday at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego.
