You know how people use it to promote shit and lie through their teeth? So I just wanted to be honest about it, and so there was really no telling what we were gonna do at that point …. I do know that we are gonna do this run [of fall shows], and we’ve already started working on stuff. So, there you go.”Rumors of new material featuring 3/5 of the band’s beloved Appetite For Destruction-era lineup have been circulating amongst the rock community since Slash, Axl Rose, and Duff put their bad history behind them for their hugely successful Not In This Lifetime… Tour beginning back in spring 2016.More recently, Slash released his latest solo album with Living The Dream, featuring his backing band Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators.

Guns N’ Roses also began sharing their 2019 tour plans with scheduled appearances at festivals including both weekends of this year’s ACL Fest, Louder Than Life Festival, and Exit 111 Fest.Head to the band’s website for tour dates and ticket info.[H/T Consequence of Sound]last_img
