GUNS N’ ROSES INCLUDE DETROIT ON INTIMATE DATES


LOS ANGELES, CA (February 6, 2012) – Sold out on their limited run of dates for February, iconic rockers, Guns N’ Roses, have added one more date to their series of intimate shows with an appearance at The Fillmore in Detroit on Tuesday, February 21, announced today.  The seven shows include the historic return to The Ritz (now Webster Hall), 24 years after the filming of their heralded “Live At The Ritz,” where GN’R are reclaiming the venue for one night only.  Complete list of dates below.

Ticket presale for the February 21st date is scheduled for Tuesday, February 7 at 10:00am ET.  The public on-sale is Wednesday, February 8.  For more information on tickets and VIP packages please visit gunsnroses.com.

Celebrated worldwide as one of the most important rock acts in musical history, Guns N’ Roses are Axl Rose, DJ Ashba (guitar), Dizzy Reed (keyboards), Tommy Stinson (bass), Richard Fortus (guitar), Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal (guitar), Chris Pitman (keyboards) and Frank Ferrer (drums).  Founder Axl Rose started Guns N’ Roses over 25 years ago and since that time, they have become one of the biggest bands in music history, selling more than 100 million albums worldwide.  GN’R’s major-label debut, “Appetite For Destruction,” has sold over 28 million albums in the United States alone.  The ground-breaking album changed the course of music with such classic hits as “Welcome The Jungle,” “Paradise City,” and the chart-topping single, “Sweet Child of Mine.”   The band’s third studio release, Use Your Illusion I and Use Your Illusion II, was the first double album release in history to nab both the top spots on the Billboard chart and went on to remain on the charts for more than 108 weeks while the band spent more than 2 years on the road to support. The ‘Illusion’ releases found the band charting new territory in the video arena with the theatrical trilogy, “November Rain,” “Don’t Cry” and “Estranged.”  The band’s most recent release, Chinese Democracy (Black Frog/Geffen Records), released in November 2008 and debuted #1 on the charts in thirteen countries, going platinum in 15 countries!  Guns N’ Roses have just returned from their sold-out global 2011 arena tour, with more than 30 shows in the US, visits to Latin America and multiple festivals, having played to millions of fans around the globe.
