Tour Notes:

Guns N’ Roses’ “Not in This Lifetime…” tour, which marked the first time since Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan toured together since the 1993 Use Your Illusion Tour, began in 2016 (on April 1), with a show at the 500-capacity Troubadour nightclub in West Hollywood. After some arena shows and festival gigs in the spring, the shows started packing the stadiums in the summer of 2016, with subsequent legs in Mexico and South America in late 2016, Australia and the Far East in early 2017, Europe and the Middle East in June and July, then back to North and South America from late July through November 2017. More shows are already slated for 2018 in North America, South America and Europe.
