After a year away from live music, the world is ready to rock out again.
From Las Vegas residencies to summer festivals to rescheduled tours, musicians are gearing up to perform after COVID-19 shut down the entertainment world.
The iconic rock group Guns N’ Roses has announced a rescheduled North American tour starting in 2021. Originally, the dates from July that were announced last year had been either canceled or postponed to another day.
However, according to Pitchfork, the group will now kick off their tour at Hersheypark Stadium in Hershey, Pennsylvania. That show is on July 31.
You should also be able to catch the group in cities like Detroit, Los Angeles, Boston, Atlantic City, and more throughout the summer and fall. Guns N’ Roses added 14 additional days to their concert tour. If you’re a part of the Nightrain Fan Club, ticket sales started June 1. For everyone else, the tickets go on sale this Friday and will likely sell fast. To view the cities Guns N’ Roses is visiting and to get tickets, go here.
The rock group will also have a very exciting opening band. Mammoth WVH, Wolfgang Van Halen’s band, is going to support the group on its tour. It will be the group’s touring debut.
By the time the tour starts, Mammoth WVH’s self-titled debut album will be available. The release date is June 11. “Distance,” the massive rock hit from the group, will surely be a go-to for the Guns N’ Roses tour.
Guns N’ Roses and Faith No More
Guns N’ Roses has had its fair experience with tours during its massive and influential career.
In 1992, the group was on tour with Faith No More as openers. The tour was also alongside another rock group as co-headliners, Metallica. The 1991 albums “Use Your Illusion I” and “Use Your Illusion II” were freshly released.
According to an episode of “Inside with Paulo Baron,” Mike Patton talked about the time he got back at Guns N’ Roses for all the pranks and mischief the group unleashed during the tour.
“One day I was like, so bored. It was just such a drag touring with those guys — I hate to say it. They treated us like shit. They paid us really well, but we were like really, just every day, looking for something fucked up to do. So one day, I just like took it out, and I pissed all over his teleprompter,” Patton said.
The Guns N’ Roses and Metallica tour with Faith No More was quite an electrifying experience. Surely, 2021 will be a similarly invigorating experience.
