With rumors circulating that Axl Rose may fill Brian Johnson’s void as AC/DC lead singer for at least the final 10 shows on the band’s Rock or Bust tour, it was so easy to at least temporarily forget that at least three-fifths of the original Guns n’ Roses are reuniting this year.
Already G n’ R are booked to play shows in Las Vegas (April 8, 9), at Coachella (April 16, 23) and in Mexico (April 19, 20), and now they’ve announced the U.S. cities (but no actual dates) where they’ll continue on. They are, in alphabetical order:
Kansas City, MO
New Orleans, LA
San Diego, CA
San Francisco, CA
St Louis, MO
The band also inserted a brief video in the press release, which does nothing to shed light on who–besides Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan–will be in the band, though it’s widely assumed Use Your Illusion-era keyboardist Dizzy Reed, along with guitarist Richard Fortus and drummer Frank Ferrer (both of Axl’s version of GNR) will be on board as well.
