Yes, one of the most legendary bands of all time, Guns ‘n Roses are heading to South Africa on the 29th of November – and I am excited let me tell you. I used to have a rather ‘dark phase’ and spent some time in Doc Maartens and ripped tights head banging in night clubs so when I heard that Guns n’ Roses were coming to Jozi I almost died!
Tickets officially went on sale yesterday and are flying off the shelves, so make sure you get yours! The international rock icons will perform one show only in South Africa at the world renowned FNB Stadium in Johannesburg on 29th November 2018.
Guns N’ Roses and their unstoppable and massively successful Not In This Lifetime Tour continues to dominate the rock music world in 2018 and beyond with 13 stadium shows lined up across Europe, festival headline slots at Download Festival UK, Paris and Madrid, Italy’s Firenze Rocks and Belgium’s Graspop Metal Meeting. They are also playing 7 dates across Indonesia, The Philippines, Malaysia, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Abu Dhabi.
Guns N’ Roses’ are Axl Rose (vocals, piano), Duff McKagan (bass), Slash (lead guitar), Dizzy Reed (keyboard), Richard Fortus (rhythm guitar), Frank Ferrer (drums), and Melissa Reese (keyboard).
Following the group’s 1985 formation, Guns N’ Roses injected unbridled, unrivalled, and unstoppable attitude into the burgeoning Los Angeles rock scene. The spirit went on to captivate the entire world with the release of their 1987 debut Appetite for Destruction –the best-selling U.S. debut ever, moving 30 million copies globally.
In 1991, the seven-time platinum Use Your Illusion I and Use Your Illusion II occupied the top two spots of the Billboard Top 200 upon release. Over the course of the past decade, Guns N’ Roses have performed sold out shows and headlined festivals worldwide following the critically acclaimed release of 2008’s RIAA platinum-certified Chinese Democracy. Six studio albums later, Guns N’ Roses are one of the most important and influential acts in music history and continue to set the benchmark for live performances connecting with millions of fans across the globe.
