2002 = 1988: Guns 'N' Roses On Tour Again!

Holy flashback, Batman! The Guns 'N' Roses tour that's been rumored for so long has been expanded and an opening act has been named. The tour will kick off in Vancouver, BC, on November 9 and run through a January 4, 2003 second show in Los Angeles. Beastie Boys DJ and all-round turntable wizard Mixmaster Mike will warm up the stage on all dates. The tour is named the Chinese Democracy World Tour, after the album the band has yet to finish. Well, Axl has yet to finish. All the music is done, he just needs to drop the vocals. We shall see how that all goes, but prepare to wear tight leather pants, a bandana and a ripped tank top and roll out to see the Guns in an arena near you.
