Guns N’ Roses’ ‘Not In This Lifetime Tour’ to continue with North American fall tour dates

Guns N’ Roses are continuing their Not In This Lifetime Tour, which started more than three years ago. The group has just announced a number of tour dates throughout the United States of America and Mexico.

Wikipedia states the following in part about Guns N’ RosesNot In This Lifetime Tour (with slight edits):

“The Not In This Lifetime… Tour is a concert tour by hard rock band Guns N’ Roses, spanning from April 1, 2016 to November 2, 2019. It features classic lineup members Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan, marking the first time since the Use Your Illusion Tour in 1993 that the three performed together.

After the previous tour in 2014, guitarists DJ Ashba and Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal, bassist Tommy Stinson and keyboardist Chris Pitman left Guns N’ Roses, leaving the band with several open spots. Former members Slash and McKagan rejoined the band and Melissa Reese joined as keyboardist. The group embarked on the world tour that spanned several continents, with 159 shows performed. The group welcomed former drummer Steven Adler to the stage for several shows as a guest spot, the first time he had played with the group since 1990. The tour was a financial success, grossing over $563.3 million, making it the third-highest-grossing concert tour of all time. The tour was 2016’s highest-earning per-city global concert tour as well as the fourth-highest-grossing overall that year. In 2017 the tour ranked as the second highest grossing worldwide tour.”

Sleaze Roxx stated the following in its review of Guns N’ Roses‘ tour stop in Toronto, Ontario, Canada back on October 30, 2017: “Three and a half hours of music with almost zero interaction between Rose and the audience. Rose barely spoke to the Toronto crowd. It was only well into the the show that he first spoke about “something interesting” he had recently heard or something like that. That turned out to be an attempt at a joke as the singer asked the crowd, who wins between a fight between Canadian icons Celine Dion and Shania Twain? The answer was… everybody. The joke didn’t exactly spark that much laughter which prompted Rose to kind of mumble that he’ll stick to his day job.”

Sleaze Roxx concluded its review by stating: “What I would really like to see from Guns N’ Roses is a much shorter set where they drop the boring stuff that isn’t seemingly connecting with fans such as anything off Chinese Democracy and all those needless covers that are not already on one of their albums. Guns N’ Roses could easily trim their set to 20 killer songs that would keep the audience level up at a fever pitch almost the entire time. Rather than that, Guns N’ Roses played a long marathon set that had some highs but also many lows filled with many boring and unknown songs. Overall, while I was glad that I was able to see Guns N’ Roses play live again, I left thinking how the group could have delivered a truly killer set but rather chose to deliver a rather uninspired marathon set.”
