    After a string of dates were announced piecemeal and via Twitter, it is now confirmed that Guns N' Roses, featuring the always temperamental W. Axl Rose, will be embarking on their first US tour in five years, which kicks off Oct. 28 in Florida! The band will perform more than 30 concerts in the U.S. – fueled by Monster Energy - from October to New Year's Eve. Before hitting the states, GNR will tour Latin America, starting with a sold out, headline slot for the closing day of the Rock in Rio festival in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on Oct. 2.

    Guns N' Roses are Axl Rose, DJ Ashba (guitar), Dizzy Reed (keyboards), Tommy Stinson (bass), Richard Fortus (guitar), Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal (guitar), Chris Pitman (keyboards) and Frank Ferrer (drums). GNR spent most of 2010 touring the globe, performing 71 shows in over 30 countries.

    The two-and-a-half hour show played to rave reviews everywhere including South America, Canada, Europe and Southeast Asia, playing close to one million fans worldwide. Now it's time for the US to get in on the GN'R fun!

    Axl Rose started Guns N' Roses over 25 years ago. Since that time, they have become one of the biggest bands in music history, selling over 100 million albums worldwide.
