GUNS N’ROSES TO BRING ‘CHINESE DEMOCRACY’ TOUR TO CANADA
October 19, 2009
It’s no illusion: Guns N’ Roses have announced a Canadian tour for January.
The first show announced is at Winnipeg’s MTS Centre on Jan. 13, with shows scheduled through Feb. 4 at Halifax’s Metro Centre.
The hard-rockers will also visit Calgary, Edmonton, Saskatoon, Regina, Hamilton, London, Ont., Montreal, Toronto, Ottawa, Quebec City and Moncton, N.B.
The band – which now includes Axl Rose, Frank Ferrer, Tommy Stinson, Richard Fortus, Ron (Bumblefoot) Thal, Dizzy Reed, Chris Pitman and Dj Ashba – is scheduled to begin rehearsals in Los Angeles shortly, according to a release from Live Nation.
The tour is in support of the band’s latest record, “Chinese Democracy,” which was finally released last year after more than a decade of delays.
Guns N’ Roses’ world tour will begin in Asia in December.
