'Not In This Lifetime' jaunt continues to grow
Guns N’ Roses have added an extra London date to their European ‘Not In This Lifetime’ tour due to high demand.
The veteran rock band announced the reunion of their classic line-up earlier this year and have already played a host of dates across North America together since. They also announced dates across Europe, Japan, Thailand, Australia, New Zealand and Dubai for next year which included a date at London’s Queen Elizabeth Park on Friday, June 16.
Now the band have added a second date on Saturday, June 17, which is on sale now.
The reformed band features founder Axl Rose and former members Slash and Duff McKagan. Original guitarist Izzy Stradlin has not participated in the reunion. The tour is named after Rose’s reaction to the idea of the band reforming in an interview in 2012.
Guns N’ Roses will play:
London, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park (June 16, 17)
In September it was reported that the band’s reunion tour has already grossed £90million, making it the highest-grossing 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.
The band recently smashed up a Donald Trump piñata on stage during their gig in Mexico City.
“Express yourself however you feel,” Axl Rose told the crowd as the band took bats to the Trump effigy. Watch fan-filmed footage of the incident below.
Meanwhile, Metallica’s Kirk Hammett recently suggested the band have become “somewhat of a nostalgia act” with the reunion tour, something he branded “sad”.
Guns N’Roses also recently launched their own online slot machine.
Created in collaboration with digital entertainment company Net Ent, the game features classic GNR hit such as ‘Welcome To The Jungle’, ‘Sweet Child O’ Mine’ and ‘Paradise City’.
It also features clips of the band in action, icons based on band members Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan, and official GNR logos and fonts.
Fans can download the app for their iPhone, iPad or Android devices, or alternatively play online on their desktop.
