Guns N' Roses Tap Alice In Chains & Lenny Kravitz for 2016 Tour
Guns N’ Roses’ “classic” lineup is just over a month away from heading out on its hotly-anticipated reunion tour, and a pair of veteran rock acts have been revealed as openers.
The 25-date Live Nation trek opens June 23 at Detroit’s Ford Field, with Alice In Chains serving as the opening act. They’ll also open the next four dates: Washington, D.C., Kansas City, Mo. and a pair of Chicago gigs at Soldier Field. Kravitz appears a couple weeks later, opening a pair of Foxboro, Mass. shows and two more nights in East Rutherford, NJ. The majority of the Not In This Lifetime dates do not yet have an opener (full schedule below).
Earlier this year, Alice In Chains opened a pair of Guns N’ Roses arena shows: April 8 and 9 at Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena.
On April 1, Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan reunited onstage as Guns N’ Roses for the first time since 1993 for a show at L.A.’s Troubadour club. Leading up to the summer tour, they also played shows at Coachella and Mexico City.
