Glam rockers Guns N' Roses have announced tour dates in the UK, after their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, scheduled for 4 April.
The band will play at seven venues:
- Nottingham Capital FM Arena on 19 May
- Liverpool Echo Arena on 20 May
- Newcastle Metro Radio Arena on 23 May
- Glasgow SECC on 25 May
- Birmingham LG Arena on 26 May
- Manchester Evening News Arena on 29 May
- London O2 Arena on 31 May
They will be hoping these performances will go off better than their last live gig (at Reading, in 2010), when the band were roundly booed after cutting short their performance because they were late by an hour.
There were earlier rumours suggesting a possible classic Guns N' Roses reunion and performance. However, former lead guitarist Slash denied them, saying he was unaware of any such plan.
"I know that there's a lot of rumour about it, as always when it comes to GNR, out there on the Internet and stuff, but as it stands right this second, I have no idea what's going on," Washington D.C. rock radio station DC101 quoted Slash as saying.
According to a BBC report, Guns N' Roses, whose latest album "Chinese Democracy" peaked at number two in the UK, are currently working on some new material.
