Guns N’ Roses will be unveiling more news and surprises soon. Get ready! 

About Guns N’ Roses

Guns N’ Roses endure as the most dynamic, dangerous and definitive American rock band in history to this day. Embedded in popular culture, their landmark Diamond-selling 1987 opus, “Appetite For Destruction,” stands out as the best-selling U.S. debut album ever, and the 11th best-selling U.S. album of all time; while their “Not In This Lifetime… Tour” (2016-19) ranked as the third-highest-grossing concert tour of all time. During 1991, Guns N’ Roses shook the world with the one-two punch of the seven-times-Platinum “Use Your Illusion I” and “Use Your Illusion II,” clinching the top two spots of the Billboard 200 upon arrival. With total sales of 100 million units thus far, their catalog also consists of “G N’ R Lies” (five-times-Platinum), “The Spaghetti Incident?” (Platinum), “Greatest Hits” (five-times-Platinum), and “Chinese Democracy” (Platinum). Not to mention, they are one of the most-streamed rock bands in the world with an average of 24 million monthly listeners on Spotify. Following the reunion of the century, they headlined Coachella and sold 5 million-plus tickets on the “Not In This Lifetime… Tour.” However, Guns N’ Roses never stop, with more touring on the horizon in 2023 and other surprises—the “Nightrain” keeps rolling at full speed.

Guns N’ Roses are Axl Rose (vocals, piano), Duff McKagan (bass), Slash (lead guitar), Dizzy Reed (keyboard), Richard Fortus (rhythm guitar), Frank Ferrer (drums) and Melissa Reese (keyboard).
