Guns N' Roses have on the same day as they performed a surprise warm-up show at the Troubador (a famous Sunset Strip, Las Angeles, CA night club) have announced some details for the upcoming Not in This Life Time tour.
GN'R will be playing in Las Vegas at the new T-Mobile Arena next week and will be playing the Coachella Festival in Indio, CA later in the month. Tickets for the entire tour go on pre-sale on April 7th and official sale on the 8th.
This tour will be the first tour to feature original band members Slash and Duff McKagan since 1993. At this time there is no confirmation on whether or not original drummer Steven Adler will be participating and Izzy Stradlin does not seem to be involved at all either. In the mean time they have Frank Ferrer and Richard Fortus filling in.
I kind of dig the name they gave the tour, as they come from a statement Axl Rose gave in 2012 about whether or not there would ever be an original GN'R reunion where he said: "Not in this life time". I kind of like how he ate his own words and used them to usher in the new era of old GN'R. I just hope to God I can get enough money to get a ticket in time. Below are the dates and venues of the tour.
