More than 2 million fans are expected to attend the much-anticipated “Not In This Lifetime” Tour, which kicks off Thursday, June 23, 2016.

Founder Axl Rose and former GNR members, Slash and Duff McKagen, have reunited for one of the century’s most anticipated musical events.

Guns N’ Roses launched their return in spectacular fashion at the Troubadour in Los Angeles on April 01 for their first live performance in more than 20 years — the same venue where the band launched their ground-breaking career! They followed with back-to-back arena shows in Las Vegas, two weekends at Coachella and two sold out stadium shows in Mexico. Nearly a half million fans saw GNR on tour in North America.

Guns N’ Roses are Axl Rose, Duff McKagen (bass), Slash (lead guitar), Richard Fortus (rhythm guitar), Dizzy Reed (keyboard), Frank Ferrer (drums), and Melissa Reese (keyboard).

Following the group’s 1985 formation, Gun N’ Roses injected unbridled, unrivaled, and unstoppable attitude into the burgeoning Los Angeles rock scene. Their spirit went on to captivate the world with the release of their 1987 debut, Appetite for Destruction, the best-selling US debut ever, moving 30 million copies globally.

In 1991, the seven-time platinum Use Your Illusion I and Use Your Illusion II occupied the top two spots of the Billboard Top 200.

Guns N’ Roses have performed sold out shows and headlined festivals around the world following the release of 2008’s RIAA platinum-certified Chinese Democracy. Six studio albums later, Guns N’ Roses is still one of the most influential acts in music history, connecting with millions of fans across the globe.

Two legends of rock music, Alice In Chains and Lenny Kravitz, are set to join GNR on their “Not In This Lifetime Tour.” Alice In Chains joins the tour from opening night, Thursday, June 23 in Detroit, Michigan at Ford Field and will perform through July 3. Lenny Kravitz will join the tour from July 19 through July 24.
