    Guns N' Roses have announced a North American tour for 2017. It's an extension of the currently ongoing Not in This Lifetime concert series. After finishing a Europe/Israel leg of the tour next July, the band will return to North America for 16 shows.

    The first show is set to take place on July 27th in St. Louis, Missouri. This will be the first time Guns N' Roses have played in St. Louis since the famed "Riverport Riot", which saw Axl Rose strike multiple fans in an effort to remove a camera from a photographer in the audience, before smashing his microphone and walking off stage. A riot ensued after the band left the stage and dozens of fans were injured. Guns N' Roses was banned from playing in St. Louis and Rose was charged with inciting a riot. However, a judge ruled that he did not directly incite the riot. Nonetheless, there was certainly still some bad blood between the city and the band, and GnR's Use Your Illusion I and II's artwork featured a message in the 'Thank You' section of the album: "F*** You, St. Louis!"
