GNR Kick Off US Tour In November, Try To Forget VMAs

Guns n' Roses have begun announcing dates for the band's first extensive North American tour since 1993, though the band's line-up has changed quite a bit since then. The current line-up is as follows; Axl Rose on vocals & goofy dancing, guitarists Buckethead, Robin Finck, and Richard Fortus, drummer Brian Mantia, bassist Tommy Stinson (Replacements), and keyboadists Dizzy Reed and Chris Pitman. Lets hope these cats will be spending the weeks prior to the tour studying their VMA performance like NFL game film in hopes that they won't suck all the way across North America. According to Billboard, the tour will kick off on November 7 in Vancouver and run through December 21 in Dallas, though more dates are expected to be added. Check out the confirmed dates thus far.
