***UPDATE – 16th Nov. *** LAS VEGAS & L.A. Tour Dates Added***

Sorry for the recent silence folks – will do a proper update this evening, For now it’s time for Los Angeles and Las Vegas to get excited cause Guns N’ Roses are coming to town. The band have announced shows for December 21st (@ The Forum, LA) and 31st (The Joint, Las Vegas) so get your Christmas and New Year’s all within a few hours’ drive of each other….and several days apart. What am I talking about? Who knows!

Oh, and Axl hasn’t ruled out the option of re-uniting with the old line-up if Guns get inducted to the Rock ‘n’ Roll hall of fame. He knows some fans want to see it and isn’t against the suggestion.

***UPDATE – 1st Nov. *** Axl Rose Battling Bronchitis – But The Show Must Go On ***

According to blabbermouth (who in turn credit it to an insider from Guns N’ Roses management) has leaked that Axl Rose has been battling bronchitis and ‘Montezuma’s Revenge’ for the past few weeks. For those of you who don’t know, Montezuma’s Revenge is a nice way of saying ‘travellers diarrhea’ which Axl himself confirmed he had in a recent posting on his twitter account.

Despite this, Axl and the Guns have been kicking ass and taking names in Orlando, Miami and they’re set to do the same again tonight in Greenville, South Carolina at a special Halloween show at the Bi-Lo Centre. The last two shows have toppled the three hour mark with Axl and DJ Ashba even stopping by a sleepy VH1 crew from ‘That Metal Show’ to give an hour long interview.

America, if you haven’t bought tickets for this tour yet then you deserve a slap!

***UPDATE – 31st Oct. *** Happy Halloween Guns N’ Roses fans ***

***UPDATE – 30th Oct. *** US Tour: 2 Dates in! ***

Well folks, they’re home! Guns N’ Roses kicked off their first US tour in five years on Friday night with a stunning 2.5 hour show at Orlando, Florida. The set included 23 songs, 5 solos and 2 jams. According to reports from fans Guns sounded amazing, blowing the crowd away. Just read the comments on the Orlando Sentinel for poof. Included in the set were Chinese Democracy classic including Better, There Was A Time, Sorry, Madagascar and Chinese Democracy as well as fan favourites Don’t Cry, Estranged, Rocket Queen, You Could Be Mine and of course ..the usual :). Excellent set and an excellent comeback from the band.

But they didn’t stop there, last night the band headlined Miami American Airline’s Arena and played an equally stunning show again with no muss, no fuss; just good old fashioned Guns N’ Roses rock ‘n’ roll. Long may it continue! The official GN’R facebook has lots of tasty snaps for ya’ll to check out. Also, several new Canadian dates and a handful of additional American ones have been announced over the past coule of weeks. Tickets There apologizes for the delay getting these up – work I’m afraid and lots of it has stopped us doing anything else. Never fear, we’ll get there.


I think it’s time to get something straight that’s annoying Tickets There and probably a lot of other Guns N’ Roses fans. Axl Rose is not fat, obese, unrecognizable. He doesn’t look horrible, his voice isn’t gone…etc, etc. The people writing this shite are called the media (and dick heads). The media make money of Axl Rose by focusing only on the negative and tearing them to shreds. Nobody ever hears about all of the fantastic shows Guns N’ Roses play because the media couldn’t be arsed talking about them. They like the controversy, the juice and they’ll suck the blood of the this band as long as they can because, well; Guns N’ Roses are the band people love to hate.

For instance, now the tabloids and online blogs are claiming Axl is fat and unrecognizable on the current tour. He looked exactly the same last year when they played Europe – not sure what the story is but if they’re expecting to see a 49 year old man looking the same as he did in 1987 (when he was 24) then that’s really their problem isn’t it?

As for losing his voice, Guns have played four shows on their current South American tour (Rio, Santiago, La Plata and Rosario). The last three have gone extremely well and you need only listen to the videos to see for yourself. Rio was first and Axl didn’t have his best night. I believe you’ll find that most musicians will say the first night of a tour is never the best (never-f**king-ever actually). Maybe it should be taken for granted that Axl, like all humans may get nerves and needs time to warm up and get comfortable. it can’t be easy; jumping on stage, day 01 of tour and play to 300,000 people for two hours in the pissing rain. Get off his back or have the deceny to trwat every band the same if you must bitch.

As for the bands tardiness, well what can I say? Oh, I could say that after two decades of late shows you are a f**king retard of the highest proportions to expect anything else. If you seriously (and I mean seriously) expect GN’R to be punctual after two decades of controversy and late gigs then you really are a total loss and a dreg of mankind. I cannot get over the sher rampant stupidity of anyone that would expect this band to be on time after everything they’ve done to convince the whole world that they’ll never change. You are a total moron and you possibly need to be sterilized or shot to stop you from infecting the rest of the race with … well, whatever the hell is making you that thick. My god, sea lions learn faster than you, monkeys, snails, brick walls, dirt – everything in the world has more intelligence than you and your kind.

Now for Obese comments (you f**king pricks! Wonder how the public would react if you just started snapping regular punters in the streets a couple of pounds overweight and called them obese in the press? There’d be outrage! Axl doesn’t look for media attention and avoids it like the plague so why focus on him?). Below is a picture of an obese man(left) and Axl Rose from the Chile gig on October 5th 2011 (right). Does he look obese? Does he look terrible? No, he looks a lot younger than 49 and he’s rocking the place. Did you hear about that? No – why? Because of everything in the opening paragraph.

The haters have nothing better to do with their lives than stir shit. Axl doesn’t let it get to him and that’s an example for us all. Fuck the haters, do your own thing. Heeding that advise, this is my last word on it.

***UPDATE – 10thOct. *** Facebook Fun & More U.S. Tour Dates Confirmed

‘Love them / hate them – they ain’t changing no matter what’ seems to be the message coming from the Guns camp in their latest FaceBook update. In a posting on Saturday (Oct. 8th) the band reaffirmed that anyone who has trouble staying up late for a hard rock concert has no business being there (agreed). Here it is in full,

Love it Hate it Accept it Debate it – You want 8 o’clock shows go find F-R-I-E-N-D-S or hit a cinema somewhere.. or you wanna be informed go catch the 10 o’clock news.. this is Rock N’ Roll! Treat yourself don’t cheat yourself thinking you’re gonna go to school or work or whatever you “normally” do the next day. Oh and remember before you get high and never want to come down. “you can have anything you want but you better not take it from me!” This is Guns N’Roses and when the time is right the stage will ignite. Looking forward to sharing that with rockers soon

What do you say to that? Well Tickets There has to agree. We’ve been through it and you know what – Guns comes on and kick ass. if you need an early sleep or have somewhere to be – then don’t go and see Guns N’ Roses. No-one’s making you so deal with it.

***UPDATE – 3rd Oct.*** Guns N’ Roses ROCK RIO ***

Well folks, they’re back! Guns N’ Roses are not long off the stage from their Rick In Rio IV headlining slot. It’s very difficult to get a proper set-list at the moment but they apparently played all the tracks from the 2010 tour with the added bonus of ‘Estranged’ being played for the first time in 18 years and ‘One In A Million’.

One of the pics included above (which have all been robbed from Chinese Click for lots n lots more) is tonight’s sound desk set-list which includes two new totals ‘Going Down’ and ‘Riff Raff’. Whether these were played or not is still a mystery, but Tickets There doubts it as the boards and twitter would have lit up….not that they didn’t. A whooping 50% of all tweets for several hours there were Guns N Roses related – they still got it!

*** UPDATE – 12th June *** – Guns N’ Roses Announce Chile and Argentina Tour Dates
Would love to announce that you heard it here first, but Tickets There’s been busy this week enjoying the greatest few days of 2011 (so far). While we were off our old pals, GN’R announced a couple of South American shows in October that will coincide with their already announced headlining slot at Rock In Rio IV.

That’s right, they’ll be hitting the Movistar Arena in Santiago on October 5 (Chile) and the Estadio Único de La Plata (just outside Buenos Aires) on October 8th (Argentina). Tickets are on sale for both shows later this month.

Tickets There is delighted to see the band hitting the road again so soon and hopefully we’ll have more announcements in the coming weeks.

*** UPDATE – 11th May *** – DJ Ashba Hopes Guns N’ Roses Will Play US This Year
I Read the news today Oh Boy – Mr. DJ Ashba, a man we can all agree is a legend, has spoken (a few times recently – but we’ve been lazy) about the chances of Guns N’ Roses playing the US this year. As you may have noticed, the April – May dates we posted below aren’t going ahead (unless they’re very good at keeping secrets. Who knows, maybe they’ve played a million shows but forgot to let people in or tell anyone about them).

In a comment to Metal Injection at the recent Revolver Golden Gods Awards, Ashba made the following remark about the chances of Guns N’ Roses playing more dates this year.

“Absolutely,” he replied. “We just booked [Brazil’s] Rock in Rio [festival] for October 2, but there’s talk we’re gonna be going out way sooner. And hopefully we’re gonna be [playing dates] here in the States this year. I’m hoping. That’s the plan.”

I suppose the folks in the US must be getting pretty tired of these reports but as we’ve said before, be patient. They will play eventually and it’ll be one hell of a tour when they do. Maybe everyone go out, buy a copy of Chinese Democracy, forget the old guns and embrace the new sound (or stop listening to GN’R is you can’t dig it) and the band will be there in no time.

Thanks to greatest GN’R site on the net) for the story.

*** UPDATE – 29th March *** – Guns N’ Roses to Headline ROCK IN RIO 4

Oh yeah, the boys (Guns N’ Roses – Duh) are going for Brazil this year to headline the Rock In Rio festival on October 2nd. They’ll be playing the festival with old pals Metallica, The Red Hot Chilli Peppers and lots more. Tickets on sale now.

This is the first confirmed show by the band for 2011 with the US tour that was suggested below looking less and less likely to kick off next week (Sarcasm). Don’t worry US, they’ll play there at some point – just don’t act like a pack of assholes when they do and Uncle Axl will reward you with more frequent tours.

Don’t go getting too excited yet folks but the good lads at have posted an extensive list of rumoured US / Canadian tour dates that the legendary Guns N’ Roses just might be embarking on in 2011.

Kicking off in Atlanta on April 7th, the tour is currently scheduled to last until June with a total of 29 dates including stops in New York’s Madison Square Garden and Los Angeles Nokia Theatre.

No official word on these dates yet but Tickets There, like all Guns N’ Roses fans are hoping these are true and the US will finally get to see exactly how good the band are these days. We’ll update ye with more news as soon as we hear it.
