Guns N’ Roses have announced the rescheduled dates for their recently postponed Central and South American tour. The trek, which was originally slated to take place in March and April, was called off due to the coronavirus pandemic which has brought the worldwide concert industry to a near-complete standstill.
The new shows will take place in November and December 2020, with all original tickets honoured for the rescheduled dates.
Guns N’ Roses tweeted out a link to the tour page on the band’s official website and included the following message: “GNR fam, we’re announcing new rescheduled #GNR2020 tour dates. Hold onto your tickets, see you soon.” The official announcement also says the band’s Costa Rica show “has been postponed due to direction from the government. It will be rescheduled for later in the year so hold on to your tickets.”
The band’s ‘Not In This Lifetime’ tour, which began four years ago, recently became the No. 3 highest-grossing tour in the history of Billboard Boxscore. Launched in April 2016, ‘Not in This Lifetime’ features classic line-up members Slash, Duff McKagan and singer Axl Rose backed by guitarist Richard Fortus, drummer Frank Ferrer, keyboardist Dizzy Reed and second keyboardist Melissa Reese.
The legendary outfit kicked off their long-rumoured and long-awaited reunion tour with a club show in Hollywood and appearances in Las Vegas and at California’s Coachella festival in 2016.
