Guns N’ Roses Announce Small Club Tour
Guns N’ Roses have announced they will perform an intimate six-date club tour featuring three shows in New York City next month.
One of the highlights of this run will be a return to Webster Hall, the site of the band’s famous 1988 MTV televised concert. The venue will temporarily go back to its old name, The Ritz, for this show.
This seems to validate GN’R bassist Tommy Stinson’s revelation last week that the band would be leaving soon for some “big stuff.” The New York shows are apparently timed to co-ordinate with the city’s fashion week. In 2010, Guns N’ Roses also performed a special club show during this event, so it seems someone in the group is a big fan of runway shows, who knew?
According to Blabbermouth, tickets go on sale starting Tuesday, Jan. 31 at 10 AM EST. Tickets and VIP packages will reportedly be available through the band’s official site, although right now it seems to be under construction.
