It is indeed a priviledge to have Axl Rose and the new kids of the hard rock band Guns N’ Roses play in Phoenix on this new US tour. Phoenician fans had to have a bit of patience but now GNR will finally play tomorrow, Dec 27th, in the valley of the sun at the Comerica Theatre (formerly Dodge Theatre) and will bring Sebastian Bach as a special guest.
GNR hasn’t been on a North American tour since 2006 and finally in 2011after they started with the Latin American Tour 2011, with a very successful concert on the rainy last night of Rock In Rio 4, they are back to a few lucky US cities.
Even with the absence of Slash, the former lead guitar, the band is doing very well thank you very much as the new lead guitar DJ Ashba has not disappointed GNR fans since 2009.
