Guns N’ Roses announce US dates

Plus they explain new album delay

Guns N’ Roses have announced details of a full US tour.

Singer Axl Rose has also spoken about the delay to ’Chinese Democracy’ album, which would be the band’s first studio album since the covers album ‘The Spaghetti Incident?’ in 1993.

“It’s not about being a control freak,” Rose told New York magazine.
