Guns N' Roses Plans Tour with Intimate NYC Dates
Before they get enshrined at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in April, Guns N' Roses will play a string of six February concerts, including three intimate shows in New York.
Axl Rose and co. will begin their short trek at New York's Roseland Ballroom on Feb. 10 and perform at Terminal 5 two nights later. On Feb. 15, GN'R will return to "The Ritz," the venue now known as Webster Hall which was the site of their 1988 MTV Concert "Guns N' Roses: Live at the Ritz."
Guns N' Roses will also perform at Chicago's House of Blues on Feb. 19, The Fillmore in Silver Spring, Md. on Feb. 23, and the House of Blues in Atlantic City, N.J. on Feb. 24. Ticket presale for the New York shows starts Tuesday (Jan. 31), and presale tickets for the other shows are set for Wednesday.
The legendary rock group is coming off of its first major U.S. tour in 5 years this past fall, after spending 2010 performing in South America, Canada and Europe. Last month, it was announced that GN'R, along with the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Beastie Boys, would be part of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame class of 2012; the induction ceremony is scheduled for April 14 in Cleveland.
