Guns N’ Roses Announce Tour


As expected Guns N’ Roses announced a Canadian tour on Monday. Could this be a warm up to world tour? We will have to wait and see but for now here is the PR info on the confirmed tour:

Guns N’ Roses will bring their Chinese Democracy World Tour to Canada in January 2010. The Winnipeg, Manitoba concert at the MTS Centre on January 13th is the first of thirteen Canadian concerts on the GN’R world tour, which begins in Asia on December 11th, with tour updates and announcements planned throughout 2010.

Guns N’ Roses – Axl Rose, Frank Ferrer, Tommy Stinson, Richard Fortus, Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal, Dizzy Reed, and Chris Pitman – welcomed guitarist Dj Ashba into the band earlier this year and are scheduled to begin rehearsals in Los Angeles shortly.

The upcoming worldwide tour promotes the band’s latest album, Chinese Democracy, which debuted at #1 on the charts in thirteen countries including Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Finland, Hong Kong, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Poland, Singapore, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, as well as the European Top 100 Albums survey.

Chinese Democracy was released on Black Frog/Geffen Records in November 2008 and reached three times Platinum in Canada. In the U.S., the album was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) on Feb. 3, 2009.

Guns N’ Roses last toured the world in 2006 – 2007, performing 60 concerts in 26 countries playing to more than a million fans.
