He’s baaaaaaack. [lastfm]Axl Rose[/lastfm] and the traveling carnival known as [lastfm]Guns ‘n Roses[/lastfm] have announced the band’s first tour date in the United States in four years (apart from the occasional “secret show” not open to the general public). Where will Axl touch down? Find out after the jump!
Rose and company are heading to Sturgis, South Dakota!
It makes sense when you remember that Sturgis hosts the Rock ‘n Rev Festival, the self-proclaimed “world’s largest biker event.” GnR will headline the final night of the festival, which will also include performances by [lastfm]Daughtry[/lastfm], [lastfm]Stone Temple Pilots[/lastfm] and [lastfm]Alice in Chains[/lastfm].
[lastfm]Guns n’ Roses[/lastfm] hasn’t played a ticketed concert in America since the cancellation of the final four dates of its “Chinese Democracy” tour in 2006. Two years after those shows were canceled, the album Chinese Democracy finally came out, but did not perform as strongly in stores as many had hoped.
And of course, we all still remember the big comeback attempt in 2002, with an out-of-breath Axl fighting his way through “Paradise City” by the end:
The band will head back to Europe and Australia for tour dates through the end of 2010.
So, if the band decided to play a show in LA, would you go? How much would you pay?
