OK, the Guns N’ Roses reunion is starting to get serious. We already knew that most of the original lineup — Izzy Stradlin isn’t participating but we’ve got Axl and Slash and Duff — would be headlining this year’s Coachella. They had already announced a couple of live shows at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas for April 8 and 9 as well. However, the next stage of this reunion has now begun, as the band has released a short video that teases an upcoming summer tour for Guns N’ Roses.
The teaser video, which is, fittingly enough, set to the whistling part of their song “Patience,” was posted by their official Twitter feed. It’s short and to the point, basically mentioning that, yes, a tour is happening, and a list of cities, presumably stops on the tour, are included at the end of the video. It mentions several major cities, but no venues, and it remains to be seen if any more dates are added to this summer tour.
While it is very exciting, at least to fans who have been waiting for “classic” Guns N’ Roses to return for years, let’s just wait and see if the band gets through Coachella first. After all, Guns N’ Roses is remembered for many things, but stability isn’t exactly one of them.
Here are the cities listed for the tour so far:
