Guns N' Roses announces first U.S. tour in five years

September 21, 2011 | 10:45 am


Guns N’ Roses will embark on their first U.S. tour in five years, the band announced Wednesday.

Axl Rose and Co. will hit more than 30 cities on the trek, which kicks off Oct. 28 at Orlando’s Amway Center Arena. The full itinerary has yet to be announced, including what will presumably be an L.A or Orange County date, but the veteran rockers will make stops in Miami (Oct. 29), Atlanta (Nov. 2) and Dallas (Nov. 5) on the tour.

Before hitting the road, the band has a headlining slot on the final day of the Rock in Rio festival in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on Oct. 2. GNR spent most of 2010 touring internationally, performing 71 shows in over 30 countries.

The band's last album was 2008's infamously delayed and insanely expensive “Chinese Democracy.”

A partial itinerary of dates can be found after the jump:

Oct. 28: Orlando
Oct. 29: Miami
Oct. 31: Greenville, N.C.
Nov. 2: Atlanta
Nov. 5: Dallas
