It’s a rock heavy list today, with a mix of hardcore, acoustic, country, aaaand Guns N’ Roses. Here’s who we’re most excited to see announced tours this week.
Guns N’ Roses North American Tour
Somehow, someway, Guns N’ Roses are still happily reunited and touring. In addition to their previously announced overseas run slated for the first half of the summer, they’ve just tacked on a batch of North American gigs for the second half of 2017. Catch them from July 27 to November 25, with the Deftones, ZZ Top and Sturgill Simpson on varying dates. Click here for tickets.
