Guns N’ Roses Tour Has ‘No End Date’

Good news, Guns N’ Roses fans: The band’s tour will carry into 2017

Guns N’ Roses kicked off their Not in This Lifetime tour back in June in Detroit, and they’re on the road now, but if you don’t think you’ll have a chance to see any of their scheduled tour dates, you’re in luck. It sounds like the band will extend this tour well into next year.

Tour production manager

Dale “Opie” Skjerseth, the tour production manager, told Atlanta TV station WXIA that the band hasn’t quite figured out when the tour will wrap up.

“I have been told there’s no end date, and I’ve seen plenty of dates going into next year — far into next year,” Skjerseth said. “So, everybody’s working together to keep a common goal, a common direction, keep the machine moving. And the way we put it together, economically, it can tour as long as it wants, being we’ve cut it down to a smaller show: a production that can move around the world without costing us millions and millions and millions of dollars to do it.”

Guns N’ Roses current U.S. run closes out Aug. 22 in San Diego. Then, the guys will do some gigs in Central and South America through November. For the band’s current tour roster, visit their website.

The Guns N’ Roses Not in This Lifetime tour features original members Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan performing together for the first time in more than 20 years.
