London Press release

Guns N' Roses originally exploded onto the music scene in 1985 with their own ferocious brand of rock n' roll. They were riding a wave of frenzied musical energy, extreme behaviour, and thrilling live performances led by the sheer force of nature that was, is and continues to be the legendary W. Axl Rose. In the process they have sold more than 40 million records. And now, they return to the UK for their first shows on these shores since 1993!

London's Dockland's Arena - Bank Holiday Monday, 26th August 2002 will be the setting for the World Premier of GN' R's full-bang, high-octane production. Fans will witness the sonic assault of the 'Guns N' Roses experience', that will feature a mixture of classic GN'R songs and new material from the forthcoming album.

Nearly nine years have passed since Guns N' Roses embarked on their last world tour. Fortunately, the most important piece is still in place and for people wondering where Axl Rose has been, he's been busy writing and recording a new album, "Chinese Democracy", that promises to surpass all of his previous efforts. Keyboard player Dizzy Reed has been in GN'R since 1991 and along with Axl is the holdover from the band's previous line-up. New to the fold are three guitarists: Robin Finck, formerly of Nine Inch Nails, guitar phenomenom Buckethead, and Richard Fortus. Rounding out the allstar line-up is bassist Tommy Stinson from The Replacements, a second keyboard player Chris Pitman, and Brian "Brain" Mantia of Primus on drums. While this new line-up only has a handful of live shows under their belt, critics world-wide are singing their praises and saying that this version of Guns N' Roses is a must see!!
