Guns N’ Roses to join the Stones!

The two heavyweight acts team up for shows

Comeback rockers Guns N’ Roses are to roll the clock back by supporting The Rolling Stones on their upcoming European tour.

Axl Rose’s mob, who supported the Stones on some dates of their 1989 ‘Steel Wheels’ tour of the US, will play at two German shows – Nuremburg on July 10 and Leipzig on July 12.

The tour is still set to begin on May 27 in Barcelona’s Stadi Olimpic Montjuic, after guitarist Keith Richards injured himself in a bizarre accident in Fiji last week (April 27).

Initial reports indicated he had suffered “mild concussion” after falling out of a tree at an exclusive resort. Later reports said he had suffered a brain haemorrhage, though this has not been confimed.

The new line-up of Guns N’ Roses are playing a number of dates this summer, including a slot at the Download Festival at Donington Park on June 11. Their long-awaited new album ‘Chinese Democracy’ is tipped to finally make an appearance this year.
