Rock legends will reunite for a tour across North America this summer, with the band to play 20 stadium dates

It’s the news that fans of legendary rock hellraisers Guns N’ Roses have been waiting decades for – well certainly those based in North America – after the band announced a massive 20 date stadium tour for this summer.

A post on the band’s Facebook page states: “Following months of intense rumor, speculation and feverish excitement from rock music fans around the world, Guns N’ Roses confirmed today they will embark on a massive North American summer stadium tour as founder Axl Rose and former members, Slash and Duff McKagan regroup for what will be one of the century’s most anticipated musical events.”

Absent from the lineup for the upcoming performances will be the band’s original guitarist Izzy Stradlin, who has declined to join up with Guns N’ Roses.

The tour has been entitled the The Not In This Lifetime Tour, a reference to frontman Axl Rose’s 2012 response to a question on the possibility of a Guns N’ Roses reformation, with Rose offering: “Not in this lifetime.”
