GN’R’S NEW YEAR GAMBLE

They can't seem to make it to Europe - so they'll settle for the capital of tack...

Guns N’ Roses are to return to the stage for two end of year shows in LAS VEGAS.

The veteran metallers will play The Joint, Hard Rock Cafe in the desert gaming capital on December 29 and 31. Tickets go on sale through Ticketmaster on Saturday December 8 at 8pm (GMT) – (12pm PST). They played similar shows in the city this time last year.

“We’ve been cooped up in the studio for so long, that we have to release some energy. Since we had so much fun playing Vegas last year, we’ve decided to do it again,” explained frontman Axl Rose in a posting on the band’s official website www.gnronline.com.

The shows mark the first for the band since they pulled gigs in Europe for the second time this year. The latest round of shows were due to have started in London on December 13.
