Watch Guns N’ Roses tease more reunion tour dates in US TV advert

Fans remain hopeful that the band will announce a European leg and further North American dates shortly.

Guns N’ Roses have teased further reunion tour dates in a new US TV advert.

“THE MACHINE IS BACK AT IT IN 2017,” the advert promises after showing clips of the band in action on their enormously successful comeback stint.


The band’s knowingly-titled ‘Not In This Lifetime… Tour’ began with a series of shows in the US in April before criss-crossing North America more fully between June and August.

The reunited line-up of Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan are now touring central and South America, and have already announced dates in Japan, Thailand, Australia, New Zealand and Dubai for next year.

Their last scheduled date is due to take place in March, but fans remain hopeful that a European leg and further North American dates will be announced shortly.

Earlier this week it was reported that the band are planning to begin the European leg of their tour with a huge show at Dublin’s 82,300-capacity Croke Park in July. According to the report, “It should be confirmed before Christmas.”

It has previously been reported that the band’s European dates will include a headline set at Download Festival in Donington Park, Leicestershire in June.


In September it was reported that the band’s reunion tour has already grossed £90 million, making it the highest-grossing tour of the year to date in North America. Their run of stadium shows were attended by over a million fans in the US and Canada.


However, Metallica’s Kirk Hammett has recently suggested the band have become “somewhat of a nostalgia act” with the reunion tour, something he branded “sad”.
