Alice In Chains have been announced as the support act for the opening weekend of Guns N’ Roses’s reunion tour.
The Seattle group will join Guns N’ Roses for the launch of their US tour at Las Vegas’s T-Mobile Arena on Friday, April 8 and Saturday, April 9.
The shows will mark the first time since 1993 that the band’s classic line-up – including Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan – have performed together.
The band have previously been announced as the headline acts at this year’s Coachella festival, taking place on April 15-17 and 22-14. They are also due to play two dates in Mexico City between performances at the California festival.
More dates are expected to be announced in the near future including a stadium tour.
Rumours of an appearance at Reading and Leeds festival failed to materialise after organisers finalised the event’s line-up earlier this week.
New music from Guns N’ Roses could also be on the way after reports that Slash has recently been in the studio.
The band’s former publicist, Arlett Vereecke, told Classic Rock that the guitarist has working on new Guns N’ Roses material.
“I know they’re doing some recording,” Vereecke reportedly said. “They’re definitely doing something there in the studio. Axl hasn’t been there, but Slash is definitely in there and it’s not for anyone else.”
Guns N’ Roses will play the following dates:
T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas, NV (April 8, 9)
Coachella, Indio, CA (16)
Foro Sol, Mexico City, MX (19)
Coachella, Indio, CA (23)
