GUNS N’ ROSES has announced a second show in Mexico City. Due to popular demand, Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan will take the Foro Sol stage for an encore performance on April 20. Tickets for the show will go on sale starting February 16, but members of the GN’R fan club Nightrain will get access to concert tickets for the show before they are available to the public.
Starting February 12 at 11 a.m. local time, Nightrain members have exclusive pre-sale access to the April 20 show in Mexico City, Mexico at Foro Sol. A password is required to access this pre-sale opportunity. Current members will receive this access code five minutes before the pre-sale begins. Please note, this is a one-time use code good for up to four tickets. Codes are for paid members only. Any codes used by fans who are not Nightrain members will be nullified.
GUNS N’ ROSES has so far announced six headlining performances in April, including two in Las Vegas and two at California’s Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, with original members Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan slated to perform together again for the first time in 22 years.
The rest of the band’s lineup for the shows — and a potential tour later in the year — remains unclear, although keyboardist Dizzy Reed, guitarist Richard Fortus, keyboard player Chris Pitman and drummer Frank Ferrer are all believed to be involved.
According to Alternative Nation, there is an “oversight management committee” handling GN’R‘s affair, with Slash, Axl and Duff each having a representative and a fourth person representing the other members.
Fan speculation around the involvement of original members Izzy Stradlin (guitar) and Steven Adler (drums) has been heavy, with Stradlin reportedly not interested in doing extensive touring and the band members not sure whether Adler, who has a longer history of drug problems than any of the other members, can hold it together on the road.
