Axl Rose is returning to Australia for the first time in 14 years with his new incarnation of Guns ‘n’ Roses.

Promoter Paul Dainty has scored the coup for Australia.

The G ‘n’ R Chinese Democracy tour will play Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth in June.

The tour is hopefully going to mark the release of the long-awaited ‘Chinese Democracy’ album which is already 8 years overdue. The only track to officially surface from the album was ‘End of Days’ on the 1999 soundtrack to ‘End of Days’.

The Guns ‘n’ Roses line-up is W. Axl Rose on vocals, guitarists Robin Finck and Ron ‘Bumblefoot’ Thal and Richard Fortus, bass player Tommy Stinson, keyboard players Dizzy Reed and Chris Pittman and drummer Frank Ferrer.

Rose has had a revolving door of players for this version of Guns ‘n’ Roses ever since the original band broke up. Most are know known as Velvet Revolver.

The Australian tour will be a spectacular in its own right with Skid Row’s Sebastian Bach and Australia’s rock legends Rose Tattoo performing as special guests.

Tickets go on sale on Thursday April 26th.

Dates are:

Sunday 10 June – PERTH – Burswood Dome
Wednesday 13 June – ADELAIDE – Entertainment Centre
Friday 15 June – MELBOURNE – Rod Laver Arena
Wednesday 20 June – BRISBANE – Entertainment Centre
Saturday 23 June – SYDNEY – Acer Arena
