Guns N’ Roses Announce Summer 2018 European Tour Dates

Guns N Roses expanded their enormous Not in This Lifetime… Tour on Friday (Nov. 10), announcing a slew of European tour dates for June and July of 2018, including a headlining slot at Download…

As Guns N’ Roses barrel through the 20th month of their massive, globetrotting Not in This Lifetime… Tour, the initial shock of their reunion has largely worn off. Yet fans with an appetite for old-fashioned rock star largesse continue to show up in droves to catch the veteran group, and now Friday (Nov. 10), the band has announced more tour dates for the summer of 2018.

GN’R will trek across Europe throughout June and July for a slew of stadium and arena shows, as well as headlining slots at the UK, Paris and Madrid editions of Download Festival. They’ll join the ranks of fellow headliners Avenged Sevenfold and Ozzy Osbourne, the latter of whom just announced his own farewell world tour for 2018.

These new European dates will put Guns N’ Roses on the road for 27 months — just three months shy of the Use Your Illusion Tour, which ran from January 1991 to July 1993, their longest trek ever. Fans and critics alike have noted the band’s punctuality, professionalism and epic, three-and-a-half hour set lists on the Not in This Lifetime… Tour. Axl Rose, Slash, Duff McKagan and Co. have sold millions of tickets and grossed hundreds of millions of dollars, proving they’re still a massive draw more than 20 years after their heyday.


The question is no longer whether Guns N’ Roses can keep from self-destructing on the road, but whether they can top their seemingly insurmountable feats of yore. See Guns N’ Roses’ summer 2018 tour dates below:
